Hit US sitcom 30 Rock is to come to an end, following an abbreviated seventh series, amid falling ratings.
The critically-acclaimed comedy, which debuted in 2006, won a string of Emmys but has been overshadowed by the success of Modern Family and Glee.
Created by comedian Tina Fey, the show revolves around the production of a late night sketch show, and stars Fey alongside Alec Baldwin.
However, audiences have dwindled to an average 3.5 million viewers in the US.
The show is partly based on Fey’s experiences of working on long-running US sketch show Saturday Night Live.
Last month, Baldwin appeared to suggest on Twitter that he was leaving the show, but Fey rebuffed the rumours on US talk show The View.
“As far as I know, he’s not leaving the show. We’re all in this together ’til the end,” said Fey, in April.
“I think that he just maybe means that the end of the show – we’re in six years – that the end of the show is visible on the horizon.”
The final season will run for just 13 episodes, and will be announced as part of NBC’s forthcoming primetime schedule next week.
