HAWTHORNE Cancelled

The TNT medical drama HAWTHORNE has been cancelled by the network with three seasons under its belt.

While the show seemed to be performing well enough in the ratings, averaging approximately 2.4 million viewers each week, and surpassing recently ‘cut-from-the-ranks’ Men of a Certain Age, perhaps the show’s recent bad PR in light of the announced split between co-star Marc Anthony and his wife Jennifer Lopez, which led to an alleged split between lead actress Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith, which was quickly debunked, could have some slight influence on the network’s decision.

Whatever led the network to make the cancellation announcement, fans of the series are sure to be disappointed given that the recently aired season finale “pushed everyone to the breaking point as a massive explosion at the hospital left one of Christina’s (Pinkett Smith) nurses severely injured and forced the evacuation of the entire facility. In the midst of the crisis, Christina revealed to Tom (Michael Vartan) the shocking news that she is pregnant”. [Source: TNT]

But rather than speculate on what caused the cancellation, here is the official statement from TNT:

TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in HawthoRNe. The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show’s talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with HawthoRNe nothing but the best.
