Cast Member: 'Chappelle's Show' Is 'Done'

NEW YORK -- Time to face the facts: Dave Chappelle's hit Comedy Central series isn't coming back, says one of its stars. "`Chappelle's Show' is over, man. Done," comic Charlie Murphy told TV Guide. "It took me a long time to be able to say those words, but I can say it pretty easy now, because it's the truth."

 

Chappelle's sudden "spiritual retreat" to South Africa on the eve of his show's third season has left the series in limbo since May. About half of a new season had been filmed before Chappelle left, Murphy said.

 

"I'm disappointed it ended the way it did, but I'm not angry with anybody," he said. "`Chappelle's Show' was like the Tupac of TV shows. It came out, it got everybody's attention, it was a bright shining star, but it burned out and for some strange reason, it burned out quick."

 

Comedy Central has always said the door is open for Chappelle to return, spokeswoman Aileen Budow said Wednesday.

 

Network chief Doug Herzog met with Chappelle on June 3, but that has been their last communication, she said.

 

Murphy, the older brother of comic Eddie Murphy, said his two seasons with Chappelle made him a star.

 

"Now I can go out and do stand-up," he said. "I'm getting movie offers. It's off the hook. Me getting to the next level or whatever's going to happen is going to come from the next things I do, but `Chappelle's Show' served its purpose and I'll always be grateful."

As I said before, my best friends cousin was an editor/producer for the show, and he's said that Comedy Central has toyed with the idea of putting together a 4-6 show season using the vignettes that are already taped.

 

Really, all that hasn't been done is the audience interaction/Chapelle lead in, and that's far from vital.

 

He's left the show to work for MTV (all the employees of the show were pretty much allowed out of their contracts), but he's said it's likely that we'll see the vignettes as a DVD special or something of that nature.

Who let the clown talk? Tupac didn't burn out quick.

i loved the one when tyrone went to give his speech to the kids about drugs and when he was on fear factor. of course, the wayne brady skit was a classic. i was really looking forward to the new season.

Should make a good anti - drug ad. I'm sad to see it go but I really am not that upset. It was good for two seasons but just like every good show it probably wouldn't remain at the top. He made a bunch of money of the show and dvd's, he made his money hopefully he can be happy with whatever he chooses to do.

He never was on Drugs when he went to S. Africa. He was clean, it was depression and exhaustion.

 

He did a stand up at a comedy club a few months back since he has come back from the treatment center.
