Set at the turn of the century, “Another Period” follows the misadventures of the Bellacourts, Newport, RI’s first family, who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money it doesn’t matter. The series focuses on sisters “Lillian” (Natasha Leggero) and “Beatrice” (Riki Lindhome), who care only about how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902.
It is being reported that Comedy Central has cancelled Another Period after three seasons. The satirical comedy returned for its now-final season earlier this year after a nearly year-and-a-half absence since its sophomore run.
The series, which follows members of a wealthy family at the turn of the 20th century, is a parody of reality shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The two sisters, Lillian and Beatrice, are defined by their wealth and stature; But their quest to be famous proves difficult back in the early 1900s.
Reasons behind the cancellation were not cited, but average viewership for Season 3 was notably lower than that of Seasons 1 and 2.
