The series will tie all the loose ends with three more episodes aired during the summer where cable series perform at best.

The running time of "Saving Grace" has wound down and will officially come to a halt next summer. TNT has ordered three additional episodes on top of the original 15 so that producers can wrap it up with the second part of season 3 consisting of final nine episodes.

After the second season last summer, TNT put the order for 15 episodes which will be split into two. The first nine are the ones currently airing on the cable, and the rest are supposed to go in the winter. With the three extra episodes, the series can have another half season which serves as the ending for the whole drama.

The reason for ending the series is based on the financial problem, which is a factor since "Grace" puts A-list actress Holly Hunter in the lead. It was, however, not the case of rating because the series' performance is satisfyingly averaging 3.5 million viewers this summer.

"It's been a fantastic beacon for the network, which has both challenged and entertained viewers in ways few other shows on television ever dare," TNT programming chief Michael Wright said.

I'd watch it with another lead actress playing Grace if that would help the finance reason for ending the series. I just like the story.

I love this show. TNT or some other channels need to pick this series up and continue with Grace;s story. One of the best shows on TV. We get a wonderful show and then it's cancelled. Robin

I am truly dissappointed that this show is going to be cancelled so soon. I only recently discovered it and was looking forward to a few more seasons of it. Heather
