A network comedy centering on the experiences of a teen with a developmental disability and his family is no more.
ABC said that it will not renew “Speechless.” The series, which debuted in 2016, wrapped up its third season last month.
“Speechless” focused on JJ DiMeo, a nonverbal high school student with cerebral palsy, as well as his parents, brother and sister. JJ used a power wheelchair, a communication board and had an aide.
