MYFOXNY.COM -

Fox's "Raising Hope" will end its four-season run with two back-to-back episodes on Friday, April 4, 2014, the network announced.

The show, created by Greg Garcia, premiered in fall 2010. It tells the story of a bumbling twentysomething named Jimmy Chance (Lucas Neff) who fathers a daughter with a serial killer and then ends up having to raise Hope with his wacky parents (Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt) and grandmother (Cloris Leachman).

Along the way, Jimmy manages to woo the cute girl he works with, Sabrina Collins (Shannon Woodward), and succeeds at being a good father to Hope despite his total lack of preparedness and knowledge of parenthood.

Plimpton and Leachman have been nominated for Emmy Awards for their performances on the show.

The series finale will wrap up the story.

"We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville," executive producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "Thanks again, and we'll see you in syndication."

The final pair of episodes will air Friday, April 4, 9-10 p.m. on Fox 5.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
