‘Hoops’ Canceled by Netflix After 1 Season

Jake Johnson starred in the short-lived basketball comedy

Netflix has cut “Hoops” from its roster after only one season.

The animated series starred “New Girl” alum Jake Johnson as Coach Ben Hopkins, described as “a hot-headed, foul-mouthed high school basketball coach who thinks turning around his God-awful team will take him to the ‘big leagues.'”

“Hoops” debuted its one and only season on Aug. 21.

The voice cast included Rob Riggle as Ben’s dad, Barry, and Natasha Leggero as his estranged wife, Shannon. Ron Funches voiced Ben’s assistant coach and best friend, Ron, while Cleo King voiced Opal, the principal of Lenwood High School. Johnson’s former “New Girl” co-stars Max Greenfield and Hannah Simone made featured appearances, while Damon Wayans Jr., Nick Swardson, Eric Edelstein, Mary Holland and Gil Ozeri had recurring roles.

“Hoops” was created and written by Ben Hoffman. He also executive produced, along with Johnson, Seth Cohen and the Lord Miller Productions duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The series was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and the animation studio Bento Box.

Netflix’s animated roster still includes “Big Mouth,” “Disenchanted,” “F Is for Family” (which is going into its fifth and final season) and the upcoming “Agent King” and “Entergalactic.”

Variety first reported on the cancellation of “Hoops.”
