Nickelodeon's new comedy series "Wendell & Vinnie" has been canceled.

A representative for the network has confirmed the news to The Huffington Post after it was first reported by Deadline.

"Wendell & Vinnie," which debuted on February 16, starred "iCarly" alum Jerry Trainor as Vinnie, the owner of an L.A. pop culture memorabilia store, who didn't have a care in the world until he found out he was the legal guardian of his wise-beyond-his-years nephew, Wendell (Buddy Handleson), after his parents died suddenly.

The series -- which also starred "King of Queens" alumna Nicole Sullivan, "Gangster Squad" star Haley Strode and newcomer Angelique Terrazas -- was pulled from Nickelodeon's schedule after its fourteenth episode aired in June due to low ratings. But the remaining six episodes of "Wendell & Vinnie" will air beginning Sunday, August 18 at 8:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon.

In the wake of the news of "Wendell & Vinnie's" cancellation, the show's official Twitter account, Handleson and Strode all sent out messages to fans:

The remaining episodes of "Wendell & Vinnie" begin airing on Sunday, August 18 at 8:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon.
