Canceled. That’s the status of Reba McEntire‘s new sitcom ‘Malibu Country,’ which aired on Friday nights on ABC. The network has nixed the half-hour show after just one season on the air.

Multiple sources have reported the show’s cancelation.

In the series, McEntire played singer Reba MacKenzie who uprooted her family and transplanted it to Malibu after her country music star husband was caught cheating on her. While in sunny So Cal, she attempted to resurrect her own career, all the while raising two teenagers who were facing a different type of peer pressure due to living in the region.

The laughs also came from watching her deal with her cranky, “tell it like it is” live-in mother, played by comedienne Lily Tomlin, and her airheaded, blonde bombshell neighbor.

In addition to starring on the show, McEntire executive produced alongside her husband, Narvel Blackstock.

‘Malibu Country’ was the fiery singer’s return to scripted television, but it was not nearly as successful as her first show. Her eponymous series ‘Reba’ ran from 2001 through 2007 on both the WB and the CW.

ABC had announced that ‘Malibu Country’ was the highest rated freshman comedy of the fall 2012 season at one point, averaging 8.7 million viewers an episode. But the network still declined to order a second season.
