AceShowbiz - Former "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale has thanked fans for watching her latest TV show after learning the series has been canceled. Bosses at U.S. cable channel The CW have opted not to renew "Life Sentence" for a second season.
The drama surrounded Hale's character Stella as she learns she's no longer dying of cancer and has to live with the decisions she has made, while convinced she was near death.
The actress confirmed the news of the show's cancellation on social media on Tuesday, May 8, revealing she was "emotionally attached" to the project and "to everyone involved."
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 shell 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 & 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 & 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 & 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 ❤️
