According to The Hollywood Reporter, FOX has cancelled "Ben and Kate" and has halted shooting before the series can complete its 18-episode order. The move occurred just two days after the comedy was pulled from the network's Tuesday evening lineup.

"Ben and Kate" has six remaining (and finished) episodes, which will now air at a later date. No word yet on when that will be.

Ben and Kate stars Dakota Johnson ("21 Jump Street," "The Five Year Engagement") and Nat Faxon ("Bad Teacher," Academy Award-winning co-screenwriter of "The Descendants") as a pair of odd-couple siblings - one a responsible single mom; the other an exuberant dreamer - who reunite to help raise Kate's daughter, Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones, "We Bought A Zoo").

Dana FOX (NEW GIRL, "What Happens in Vegas") is creator/executive producer. Ben and Kate is produced by 20th Century FOX Television and Chernin Entertainment. The series is executive-produced by Fox, Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, TOUCH), Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL, TOUCH), Jake Kasdan, Neil Goldman ("Community") and Garrett Donovan ("Community").
