Fox has cancelled freshman sitcom The Grinder after its pilot season and the show's lead actor Rob Lowe took to Twitter to share his views on the network's decision. Lowe played Dean Sanderson in the show.
The actor wrote on Twitter: "The Grinder was not renewed by @FOXTV. It was unapologetically original, smart, funny and had a murder's row of talent. #GrinderRests." Lowe, however, found a silver lining in this piece of bad news and shared: "The great news is, that film is forever. And I'm thrilled to have 22 episodes that were as acclaimed as they were. Time well spent!"
Other than Lowe, many actors, including his brother Chad Lowe, The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling and Arrow star Colton Haynes, shared their disappointment at the show being cancelled.
Haynes, who recently guest-starred in the show as Grinder's son, wrote: "I'm honestly floored that #TheGrinder wasn't picked up for a 2nd season. It makes no sense. Ur the best @roblowe so bring it somewhere else!"
Chad called The Grinder a sophisticated show and wrote: "Wish more people had discovered the brilliance of#TheGrinder. Smart, sophisticated, comedy."
The Mindy Project star reacted with "No" to the cancellation news and also offered Rob an interesting role in her show.
The show followed the life of Sanderson, a Hollywood television star who decides to move back to his home town and work as a lawyer in his family's law firm after the TV series in which he acts as a lawyer gets cancelled. The show also starred Fred Savage, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, William Devane, Natalie Morales and Steve Little.
Along with The Grinder, Fox also cancelled Grandfathered, Bordertown and Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life.
