Queer Comedy ‘The Other Two’ Cancelled Amidst HR Complaints

The Other Two

‘The Other Two’, the queer Max comedy show, will conclude June 29 with its season three finale amidst HR complaints.

The cancellation for a fourth season came amidst a series of multiple complaints about creators and showrunners Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider over the course of the production, albeit insiders say there is no connection between the off-camera drama and the show coming to an end.

The Hollywood Reporter sources confirm Kelly and Schneider were the subjects of complaints over their behavior on set and in the writer’s room. These include allegations that Kelly was verbally abusive towards writers and overworked crew. Additionally, it was alleged that Schneider enabled his behavior.

Furthermore, the production conducted a formal investigation into the allegations with Kelly and Schneider not being allowed on set for a period. Both were allowed to return when they were formally cleared of their allegations.

Kelly and Schneider remained mum on the issue and focused on thanking the queer fans for tuning in for three seasons.

“It is bittersweet to say goodbye to the Dubek family after three seasons, but we always knew, both creatively and personally, that this was where we wanted to end their stories,” Kelly and Schneider said in a joint statement.

“We are deeply grateful to everyone (gays) who watched the show, to Max for giving us a second home and life, and to our writers, producers, and crew, who gave so much of their time, talent, and passion to this show over the last 45ish years,” they said.

They extended their gratitude to the cast, Heléne Yorke, Drew Tarver, Molly Shannon, Case Walker, Wanda Sykes, Josh Segarra, and Brandon Scott Jones, before teasing “except Ken [Marino].”

‘The Other Two’ originally aired on Comedy Central but moved to Max for its second and third seasons.

The series follows the Dubek siblings, the former professional dancer Brooke (played by Yorke) and aspiring gay actor Cary (played by Tarver), as they come to terms with their 13-year-old brother, Chase (played by Walker), going viral on YouTube under the moniker ChaseDreams. 

‘The Other Two’ received critical acclaim, with Shannon receiving two nominations for Best Supporting Actress at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
