The inhabitant is no longer with Fox.
The network has canceled its medical drama after six seasons. The decision comes almost three months later The inhabitantproduced by Disney’s 20th Television, ended the 13-episode sixth season.
Speculation about the show’s fate has been swirling since the end of the season – the shortest of the show’s six. The inhabitant had the lowest rated season yet among adults 18-49, averaging 0.53 in the key demographic ad over seven days of viewing (vs. 0.7 last season). According to Fox, the show’s cross-platform audience of 6.9 million viewers was down 12 percent from the 2021-22 season.
When The inhabitant 20th TV premiered in January 2018 and was still part of the 21st Century Fox family that also included the broadcast network. However, a month earlier, Fox and Disney had agreed on a $71 billion sale of the studio and some cable assets to Disney; that deal was closed in 2019.
Since then, Fox has made every effort to own or co-own as much of its programming as possible. The inhabitant and the two 911 shows – whose future on Fox has yet to be determined – are the only dramas airing on the network this season in which Fox Entertainment has no share. (20th TV also produces the network’s animated comedies The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers And The Great North.)
In addition, Fox ordered another medical drama entitled Doc, earlier this week. That series, a co-production between Sony Pictures TV and Fox Entertainment, is based on an Italian hit show that has been adapted in several other countries.
Meanwhile sources say The inhabitant star Matt Czuchry remains in the 20th TV fold and will join the next season of FX’s American horror storythat the studio produces.
Co-creator Amy Holden Jones executive produces The inhabitant with showrunner Andrew Chapman, Rob Corn, Oly Obst, Antoine Fuqua, Marc Halsey, Joy Gregory and Czuchry.
Jones is still in business with Fox, writing and producing a crime show called Archie & Pete that is on a development path from script to series. Matt Nix (CBS’ True liesFox The gifted) is also an executive producer.
