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.
