TV Land Cancels Sophomore Comedy ‘Impastor’

The Now Final Episode Aired on December 7

TV Land has opted against a third season or sitcom “Impastor.” Debuting on July 15, 2015, “Impastor” featured Michael Rosenbaum as Buddy Dobbs, a fugitive and hard-core gambling addict who, in order to hide from a pair of loan sharks, ends up stealing the identity of a recently deceased gay Lutheran pastor who was relocating to Ladner, a small-town community outside of Portland, Oregon.

The now final episode of “Impastor” aired on December 7. A total of 20 episodes were produced.

“We want to thank the incredibly talented cast, producers and crew of Impastor for their hard work over the past two exciting seasons,” said Keith Cox, president of Development and Production at TV Land.

    Well, that’s disappointing. I really enjoyed Impastor, very funny. And, of course, it ended with a big cliff hanger. 🙁

    Yet another show that could have worked had it not been saddled with the Fake-edgy burden of trying to please… Well who exactly? Three critics who hate well-made TV?

    It was an interesting concept (done in Western guise in the 60s and 70s) and well-made it would have worked.
