After three seasons, Nick at Nite's first original scripted comedy series "See Dad Run," starring Scott Baio of "Happy Days" fame, is being canceled.

According to Deadline Hollywood, five episodes of the 20-episode season two will continue to air, as well as the 13-episode season 3 that is currently being shot and wrapped in May. Additionally, an hour-long series finale has been ordered in addition to the 13 regular season three episodes.

Baio is most well known for his role as Chachi Arcola, the cousin of Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli played by Henry Winkler, in 1974's "Happy Days." He was also Charles, the star in the hit series "Charles in Charge," which ran from 1984-1990.

After the cancellation of Nick at Nite's second original sitcom "Wendell and Vinnie," the cancellation of "See Dad Run" leaves the network with only one original comedy series, "Instant Mom."

After a strong premiere, "Instant Mom," which stars Tia Mowry-Hardrict of "Sister, Sister" fame, was renewed for a 20-episode second season.

"See Dad Run" is the story of David Hobbs, an actor who becomes a stay-at-home dad so his soap-opera-star wife, played by Alanna Ubach, can return to the spotlight. In comedic sitcom fashion, he quickly realizes it's harder than it looks!

Many people say they will remember the episode in which Garry Marshall, also of "Happy Days" fame, made a guest appearance on the show, playing the father of Baio's character.

After the announcement of the cancellation, Baio took to Twitter to thanks his viewers, and break a little news on what will occupy his time once filming ends.
