BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — U.S. viewers aren’t going to see the love story on TV’s “Welcome to Sweden” play out.

NBC has canceled the comedy starring Greg Poehler two weeks into its second season.

Poehler’s sister Amy served as one of the executive producers of the series.

“Welcome to Sweden” was an international production, filmed in Sweden with American and Swedish actors. It aired there and in the United States.

The premise is based on Greg Poehler’s real-life experience of falling in love with a Swedish woman and moving to her home country to be with her.

NBC says “Hollywood Game Night” will air this Sunday in its place, and the network is deciding when the rest of the episodes will air.
