In one of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets, it was officially announced that TNT has canceled Jada Pinkett Smith‘s medical drama titled Hawthorne. Since this was coming, news is already starting to spread that the supposed divorce from Jada and Will was a gimmick to draw up some attention for the show as her supposed divorce was because of an affair with her co-star Marc Anthony. Expect that news from many outlets soon. Anyway here is the article from Deadline;
After weeks of rumors, TNT today made it official: the Jada Pinkett Smith-starring medical drama Hawthorne is being canceled after 3 seasons. Also on the bubble with a 50/50 chance of return is the network’s sophomore Memphis Beat. Of the 2, Memphis Beat has been the stronger performer, ending its second season a couple of weeks ago with 4.9 million viewers for the finale. Hawthorne‘s Season 3 closer posted 3.6 million viewers. Hawthorne is the second TNT series to get the axe this summer following the cancellation of Men of a Certain Age. Here is the network’s statement:
TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe. 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.
