FOX has rejected Our Kind Of People.
The network has quietly cancelled the drama series Our Kind Of People after one low-rated season.
The decision not to move forward with Our Kind Of People Season 2 comes on the heels of the show not getting the all-important full season order from the network.
The first — and only — season of Our Kind Of People will wrap after 12 episodes.
Internally, the acceptance is that Our Kind Of People Season 2 will not find a new home elsewhere.

About Our Kind Of People TV Show
Series Inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham's Acclaimed Novel to be Co-Produced by FOX Entertainment and 20th Television
Marking FOX's first drama order for next season and inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham's provocative, critically acclaimed book, "Our Kind of People: Inside America's Black Upper Class," the series takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful black elite have come to play for over 50 years. OUR KIND OF PEOPLE follows strong-willed, single mom Angela Vaughn as she sets out to reclaim her family's name and make an impact with her revolutionary haircare line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of black women. But she soon discovers a dark secret about her mother's past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever.
"OUR KIND OF PEOPLE is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of black resilience and achievement - all daringly told by a team we've been eager to get back in business with," said Thorn. "There are no better storytellers than Karin Gist and Lee Daniels to bring Lawrence Otis Graham's seminal work to life."
Last September, FOX gave OUR KIND OF PEOPLE a writers' room commitment to allow Gist, Daniels and their team to further develop the project prior to today's series order.
OUR KIND OF PEOPLE will be produced by 20th Television and FOX Entertainment. The project is written and executive-produced by Karin Gist. Lee Daniels, Marc Velez (Lee Daniels Entertainment); Pam Williams and Claire Brown (The Gist Of It Productions); Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Rodney Ferrell (Propagate); and Montrel McKay serve as executive producers.Keep track of the cancel/renew status of all your favorite TV shows.

I wanted so much for this show, but you could barely hear the conversations over the loud music and the storyline was just plain weird. I couldn’t like this show. I’m not mad at it ending. From the very first episode I had a hard time understanding what was coming out of the the star of the show mouth she spoke so low.
