Jim Gaffigan's 'The Jim Gaffigan Show' is done

It's great when a comedian realizes their dream TV show. It's even better when they can end it on their own terms. That's just what comedian Jim Gaffigan and his wife Jeanie decided this past summer. Gaffigan announced on Twitter yesterday that the TV Land series The Gaffigan Show is over. The second season ended this past Sunday with a double episode finale. Read the full statement from the Gaffigans below:

After months of discussion Jeannie and I have decided to make season 2 of The Jim Gaffigan Show the final season. We realize this may surprise some and we don’t make this decision lightly. It is hard to say goodbye to this highly personal passion project, which we have nurtured and poured our hearts into for over five years. Jeannie and I are grateful that TVLand allowed us to do this show about our lives the way we wanted. It was empowering, exhilarating and exhausting. As many of you know all the episodes this season were written by Jeannie and me. Jeannie was the showrunner and I acted in virtually every scene. In one way it was a perfect scenario. We worked with an amazing cast and crew, learned tons and laughed so much. However the time commitment to make the quality of show we wanted was taking us away from our most important project, our five children. We are truly grateful for all the support friends on social media and television critics have given The Jim Gaffigan Show. Jeannie and I are excited to move forward with other creative pursuits.
