‘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.
