Spoilers for 'Filthy Rich' 

FOX's Southern Gothic sitcom has garnered a fan base with its charm, rich people antics and an added bit of religion spice. Many wait for the show every Monday to find out how matriarch Margaret Monreaux (Kim Cattrall) handles the fan deemed cult 1820, her husband Eugene Monreaux's (Gerald McRaney) illegitimate children with three different women, the Monreaux family business that is the Sunny Network and the Sunny Club, and of course, just being her sassy self. Coming from the likes of shows such as 'Devious Maids', 'Dynasty' and 'Empire' (without the music), fans have grown accustomed to the weekly drama the series provides. Unfortunately, if you're wondering if there is going to be a Season 2, we're sad to say the network canceled the series before Episode 6 even aired. Let's just say, fans aren't happy and neither are we.

"WTF!!! Just hearing this... #FilthyRichFOX is cancelled already??? Loved this show!!! @FOXTV," wrote one fan.



 

Fans wasted no time calling FOX out, and things got even more heated today as Episode 6 airs. "B*****ds!! @FOXTV how could you cancel #FilthyRichFOX?!? I hadn’t been this excited about appointment TV since TGIF existed," wrote one distraught fan. Another added, "#TheView Fam ... #FilthyRichFOX This is a good show... I was sitting here waiting to watch anfd scrolling Twitter and I see @athena606's tweet  Wow... SMH," reacting to a tweet saying the series was canceled.



 



 

Fans were not only calling out the network, but also pleading with other networks to pick up the show. "I'm so pissed but they keep stupid shows like I can see your voice! RT @_BibleBeltBelle: Someone pick up this show!!!!! Please!!!! @netflix @hulu @PrimeVideo @amazon #FilthyRichFOX," wrote a fan. Yet another fan added, "This is some bs I can't believe this show is canceled. I knew fox was going to do this that's why I never watch anything on their channel. Hopefully another station picks up #[email protected] #FilthyRichFOX"



 



 

The season so far has been a thrilling one, mainly because we have no idea if Eugene is really alive or will ever come back home. Since there will not be Season 2, fans are hoping for a satisfactory series finale. "I had heard Filthy Rich was a fill-in due to COVID but I was hoping it would be a series thereafter. Since it has not been renewed (boo) I hope the ending had better answer everything and not leave us hanging... #[email protected]," wrote one fan.

According to a report by Variety, sources informed them that β€œrising production costs due to the Covid-19 pandemic played a significant part in the decision” of canceling the show. But, the episodes from Season 1 that have been filmed will air to completion. So, until then, we get to at least enjoy the rest of the season, in hopes that maybe another network could pick up the show.



 

Episode 7 airs on Monday, November 9, from 9-10 pm ET on FOX.
