To a great disappointment of all Grandfathered fans, FOX announced that the series would be canceled due to low television ratings. It is official that the freshman sitcom series won’t be coming back after only one season. Namely, the first episode of the show attracted 5.34 million viewers, while the finale drew only 1.64 million viewers which is a significant drop. Due to this poor result, FOX could do nothing else but to cancel the show.
