MTV won't be moving forward with a fifth season of the reality series — at least for the time being, according to Deadline. "Rip to a time in all of our lives," cast member Gus Smyrnios wrote on Instagram. "Despite everything, I love each of these people in their own way and I wouldn't have wanted to experience any of it with anyone else. For a bunch of young kids from the south I'm proud of everything we did and accomplished, when everyone wrote us off from the start. Wish everyone the best with their next page In life. Even you Jeremiah and Nilsa lol. Not bitter about anything anymore. People forget we were in our early 20s getting filmed drinking 24/7, gonna be some mistakes that lead to growth. I can truly say I laid my whole life out their to get critiqued and judged and I hope I at least helped some kids that could have struggles with the same things. Thanks to the fans who showed love to all of us through the years instead of trying to tear us down. Much love and on to new things."

"We had a good run but now it's time for me to cancel my Hulu subscription but not before thanking all the fans. This wouldn't have been possible without y'all support. The way y'all rallied behind Woke was incredible. Having folks on the street stop me to show love for the characters and the writing has been incredibly rewarding. Especially when we tackle, what we tackle. Playing Keith Knight has been an absolute pleasure especially with the wonderful cast and crew assembled. Thanks for including me on your journey. Looking forward to this new chapter and what life reveals next."

Morris then added: "Ok maybe i won't cancel my subscription the way they canceled us. I'll take the higher road and merely downgrade to just the sports package. Because Hulu Does have live sports."

The drama followed James Wolk's Joe through three possible versions of reality based on a difficult decision he had to make on his college graduation day, but NBC ultimately decided his fate on March 4. "Words cannot express the love and respect and unification that existed on set every single day during the making of Ordinary Joe," Wolk wrote on Instagram the next day. "This project was filled with some of the most creative, giving, supportive, driven, and humble artists and crew members I've ever had the pleasure of collaborating with. Every day on set, despite wearing masks and shooting during the pandemic and regardless of the long hours that our business demands, I saw smiles and love all around me. I'm so proud of this show and so grateful I was able to make it with this group of people. I'm also blown away and humbled by the audience that tuned in week after week to watch our story unfold. If there's one message that this show stood for, it's the idea that life is what we make of it. So go out there and live your life to the fullest. Embrace the good and the bad and keep putting one foot in front of the other! Until next time."
