Two Canadian series won’t be returning to Bell Media this year.

Sensitive Skin has come to an end after two seasons on HBO Canada, while CraveTV’s What Would Sal Do? is ending after just one.

Sensitive Skin, starring Kim Cattrall and Don McKellar, was produced by Rhombus Media, in association with Baby Cow Productions and The Movie Network.

The announcement that the series had not been picked up for a third season was made via the show’s Twitter account and later confirmed to Playback Daily by a representative from Bell Media.

Producers on the series are Niv Fichman and Sari Friedland, with Kim Cattrall, Don McKellar, Bob Martin, Andrea Gorfolova, Henry Normal and Hugo Blick serving as exec producers. Sensitive Skin was created by Blick, while Martin served as head writer. The series picked up an International Emmy nomination in 2015 for best comedy.

Meanwhile, New Metric Media’s What Would Sal Do? has also not been renewed. The half-hour comedy was originally supposed to debut in the spring of 2016 on Super Channel, but the deal fell through when the channel’s parent co filed for creditor protection. It was finally picked up by Crave in January of this year.

Series creator, writer and exec producer Andrew De Angelis delivered the news via his Facebook page, saying, “We had a good run. Well…we had an ok [sic] run. Who am I kidding, we had a run.” A spokesperson for Bell Media confirmed that the series would not get a second season. 

The series was produced by Toronto’s New Metric Media, in association with DHX Media and with the participation of the Canadian Media Fund and Ontario and Federal Tax Credits.
