FXX cancels 'Chozen' and 'Legit'Jim Jefferies’ Legit and Danny McBride’s animated series Chozen will not return to FX or FXX, after this season ends. The news came after FX Networks CEO John Landgraf, who has been pushing hard on creating original comedies for FX and its baby sister channel FXX, announced he would be doubling the amount of shows for the networks in the upcoming year.

Legit closed up shop after last night’s final episode after one season on FX and a second season on FXX. The show followed the adventures of ex-Australian Jim Jefferies and his group of friends. It was a great mix of completely obscene, yet very heartfelt, material. It proved that human nature isn’t so black and white. The seemingly degenerate characters showed a level of love and sympathy not usually seen in the static characters of broadcast network shows. We’re sad to see it go and you can read about why we loved it so much here.

Chozen made it through one 10-episode season on FX, which ended on March 31. Chozen was about a gay white rapper (voiced by Bobby Moynihan) recently let out of prison. It was pushed by the network to be a success and even enjoyed an early exclusive release on the XBox One entertainment console. Danny McBride created the show and served as executive producer.

    Legit and Totally Biased were excellent shows. There is now nothing left on FX and FXX that interests me.

    I wanted to like Chozen (Eastbound and Archer are/were wonderful shows) but it stunk.

    Huge mistake

    I was disappointed with the second season of Legit. It became way to emotional and sappy in that typically american TV show way, at the expense of the funny – at least compared to the first season. Having said that, the final two episodes were extremely well done.They showed off the development of Jim’s acting chops and I really did start to like the characters. Even if it lost a few points on the laugh-o-meter, it was still more affecting and enjoyable than most crap on TV. As I tweeted Jim, which he will most likely never read – you closed strong, mate. And that matters.
