Lucy Hale Confirms 'Life Sentence' TV Show Has Been Canceled

TV actress Lucy Hale has confirmed that her current show called 'Life Sentence' will not be renewed for a second season earlier today.

It sounds like The CW network was not happy with the ratings of the show from its current first season.

Lucy Hale broke the bad news to her Twitter followers earlier today. You can read her full statement on the matter posted down below.

"Just got the sad news that Life Sentence will not be coming back for a second season. I was emotionally attached to this story and to everyone involved so I;m a little shells shocked right now, but I feel fortunate that we got to tell a really beautiful story. Sometimes things don't resonate with the audience and shows just don't work, but I'm so proud of what we accomplished and for the experience I had.

Life Sentence was a show that a lot of us needed and I am beyond grateful for those who gave our show a chance. Somewhere in the Universe, the Abbotts will continue their dysfunctional lives and Stella will continue to be a manic pixie dream girl. That chapter is closing before I want it to, but taking this as a life lesson. Things don't always work out in our favor and it's up to us what we do with it. It's been a helluva last year for me and I want to give a huge thank you to the support I've been shown! Love love love to all of you. We created something important and pure and no cancellation can take that away."

Life Sentence debuted earlier this year but struggled with the TV ratings. Its most recent episodes only saw less than 500,000 viewers which is pretty low. 

As of right now, it looks like the remainder of season 1 will continue to air on The CW Network on Friday nights. The show never managed to have more than over 1 million viewers in an episode.
