Wilfred has been a dark horse show for its entire existence. This dark comedy starring Elijah Wood and Jason Gann about a dog that only one man can hear talk has been a critic's dream but few have been really watching. Even during this last season the showrunner, David Zuckerman, asked fans to start watching the show live after ratings weren't were they used to be. It seems it wasn't enough to save the show since the show was renewed but also announced this coming 4th season will be it's last. Not only that but the show will be pushed to the FXX network which does has a younger set of viewers.
While the new network isn't a death kiss the 10 episode order, down from the usual 13, might be. I hope this is one of those shows that's able to see life on instant streaming services the way small shows like this normally wouldn't. Typically you would need somewhere around 100 episodes across your show's run to start thinking about syndication dollars. However with some cash flow coming in from Netflix or Amazon Instant then this could open up new venues for revenue.
Sad to see such a smartly written show drop off like this but I'd rather see a show end early with quality than late with fat paychecks and no jokes. Hopefully Jason Gann and Wood can team up again as well since those two make a funny comedy partnership.
