There is a bit of bad news for fans of the small fortune TV shows. NBC has canceled the competition series, so there will be no second season.

Based on the British game show of the same name, the small fortune The TV series is hosted by Lil Rel Howery. In each episode, teams of three from diverse backgrounds (first responders, Olympians, and more) compete in the smallest of challenges for a chance to win big. To win, players must face thrilling tasks in real-world destinations that test their accuracy and technique. Teams that make it to the end must tackle one tiny, epic final game – the “Big Little Heist”. If players can control their nerves and avoid the slightest mistake, they will walk away with a cash prize of $250,000.

The first season of small fortune garnered an average rating of 0.29 in the 18–49 demographic and 1.40 million viewers in Live+ same-day ratings (including DVR playback until 3 a.m.). Although these numbers do not include delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of a show’s performance, especially when compared to others on the same channel. Broadcast during the summer of 2021, small fortune was the network’s lowest-rated series in both the demo and overall viewership.

First reported by Deadline, small fortune is the second unscripted NBC series to be canceled this week. Ellen’s Game of Games was also dropped, after four seasons.
