It has finally come out that The Chappelle Show is finished.
Time to face the facts: Dave Chappelle's hit Comedy Central series isn't coming back, says one of its stars. “`Chappelle's Show' is over, man. Done,” comic Charlie Murphy told TV Guide. “It took me a long time to be able to say those words, but I can say it pretty easy now, because it's the truth.”
Chappelle's sudden “spiritual retreat” to South Africa on the eve of his show's third season has left the series in limbo since May. About half of a new season had been filmed before Chappelle left, Murphy said.
“I'm disappointed it ended the way it did, but I'm not angry with anybody,” he said. “`Chappelle's Show' was like the Tupac of TV shows. It came out, it got everybody's attention, it was a bright shining star, but it burned out and for some strange reason, it burned out quick.”
Well, it doesn't seem like Comedy Central missed a beat. They now have Mind of Mencia which if anyone has noticed opens very similarly and has a similar makeup to The Chappelle Show.
Update – Stone: I've heard from credible sources (I have sources now, bitches!) that the 8 completed episodes from season 4 will be out on DVD sometime near the end of this year.
