Time has run out for the Chance family with the cancellation of Raising Hope

Fox has announced that its quirky family sitcom Raising Hope will end its run after four seasons with a one-hour finale.

The show - which stars Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Cloris Leachman and airs in Ireland on RTÉ Two – is about a tri-generational dysfunctional family trying to raise a young child.

“On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope‘s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” executive producer Mike Mariano said in a statement.

“We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”

Guest stars in the finale will include Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), a returning Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), and 1970s’ soft rock pioneer Kenny Loggins.
