See Dad Run Canceled Nick At NiteEXCLUSIVE: It is the end of the road for Nick at Nite‘s first original scripted comedy series See Dad Runstarring Scott Baio. I have learned that Season 3 of the family sitcom, which is currently filming, will be its last, with production on the series wrapping in May for good. There are five episodes left from See Dad Run‘s 20-episode second season, with the 13-episode Season 3 expected to air later this year — culminating with an hourlong series finale, which has been ordered in addition to the 13 regular episodes. See Dad Run‘s cancellation after 3 seasons and the exit of Nick at Nite’s second original sitcom, Wendell & Vinnie, after one leaves Instant Mom as the network’s only remaining original comedy series.

Created by Tina Albanese and Patrick Labyorteaux, See Dad Run centers on actor David Hobbs (Baio) who, after a decade on television, becomes a stay-at-home dad so his soap-opera-star wife (Alanna Ubach) can get back in the spotlight. But he quickly realizes that playing a dad on television is very different from the real thing. Albanese and Labyorteaux executive produce with Nat Bernstein and Mitchel Katlin.
