TNT has pulled the plug on medical drama "Hawthorne" after three seasons. On Friday, September 2, the network announced that it will not order a fourth season of the show, which was struggling with its ratings although it generated loyal fan base.

"TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved," the network said in a statement. "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."

Lead actress Jada has since taken to Twitter to inform fans about the cancellation and thank them. "Hey everyone...if you don't know Hawthorne will not be returning for another season. I want to say thank you to all the fans for being Hawthorne soldiers. All our facebook fans...twitter soldiers and held us down. Of course you know there is more to come...believe it!" she wrote.

A petition has been proposed to urge TNT not to cancel the series. In the argument, the person who set up the petition praises the show for having "a diverse cast and a strong presence in so many different communities."

"Hawthorne" is the second series that was canceled by TNT this summer. The network had axed Emmy-nominated show "Men of a Certain Age" back in July, sparking protests among TV critics.

I was not a die hard Hawthorne fan until the last season, I loved the characters that Marc and Jada played. Wish there were more medical relevance, but I liked the story line. If not on TNT, maybe TVOne and if not there possibly bring it into movie theaters following the wave of Sex in the City. You think?

This is a shame. I look forward to every episode of Hawthorne. I can't believe that a show of this caliber can be cancelled. If there is a petition to save this show please let me know.

I thought the show was excellent. I love the series and I'm sorry to see it leave the air. They had very few black dramas on TV and this was excellent. People need to quit hating and get a life. If you didn't like the show why did you bother watching. Because the acting was so damn good that's why

I enjoyed the first season and I had a lot of hope for Hawthorne. But the second season was like a show written by a demented person. Mark Anthony's character should have been a very small part. I was ready to forgive the timing of the demented attack but from that point this show took a noise dive. From Hawthorne's affair within minutes of her marriage to the daughter's boyfriend spewing religious nonsense, this show was a wreck. I watch it with the fast forward button. Thank you TNT for the cancellation. This show needed to be put out it misery. Whether it was the writers or Jada, this show became a mess. Good riddance. I could write a book of what went wrong. But there's no need. TNT wrote the best line: THE END.

Good riddance! Hawthorne was the most annoying, self-righteous character on the show.

The only reason I watched was to see Michael Vartan! I won't miss it, but I don't like that they left it without an ending.

Her character was based on her own inflated ego. I really enjoy TNT's original programming but this was the worst show on TV. Can't ride on Hubby's name forever. Now if America could figure out that the kid's are also inept.
