Fans Are Furious That CBS Is Ending 2 Broke Girls Before the Girls Hit It Big
For the past six seasons, we’ve watched as Max Black (Kat Dennings) and Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs) formed a star-crossed friendship after Channing lost her fortune in an embezzlement scandal and needed a place to crash. Against the odds, the two would go on to become BFFs, co-workers, and eventually, business partners several times over on 2 Broke Girls.
Taking on the world together, the dynamic duo has made money, lost it all, fallen in love and right back out, and shared in each other’s successes and failures. Now, CBS has pulled the plug on its long-running hit, making it the latest in a series of crushing cancellations for television viewers.
While we knew the show was potentially on the chopping block (along with 31 other shows whose fates are still up in the air), it doesn’t make its loss any easier on its fans — or its stars.
Dennings and Behrs (who has her impending wedding with Mad Men’s Michael Gladis to look forward to), took to Instagram to issue a joint statement to their beloved fans.
Thanking their viewers, the two said that they “are so proud” of their time on the show, and that they’ll treasure the lifelong friendship that it has resulted in.
Behrs also shared a Polaroid of the oddball crew, which includes Legally Blonde’s Jennifer Coolidge as Sophie, Matthew Moy as Han Lee, Jonathan Kite as Oleg, and Garrett Morris as Earl, writing, “Family. Always” along with a heartbroken emoji.
She then paid homage to the show’s other star — Channing’s prized horse, Chestnut. “Goodbye Chestnut,” she wrote. “Thank you for being the catalyst for my love affair with all things horses. We’ll miss you.”
She’s not alone — fans are none too pleased that the show getting the boot, leaving them with no resolution, as the girls had still yet to, well, stop being broke. Max had also recently gotten engaged, and gosh darnit, we wanted a TV wedding!
