VH1 is pulling the plug on a scripted original series. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel has canceled the hourlong dramedy “Single Ladies,” which is executive produced by Queen Latifah.
The show, which marked VH1’s first hourlong scripted series, won’t return after its third season, the piece notes. "Single Ladies" stars Denise Vasi, LisaRaye McCoy-Misick and Charity Shea.
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of ‘Single Ladies,’” VH1 said in a statement. "Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011."
The show focuses on three best friends with different approaches to love and relationships. The series is averaging about 2.2 million total viewers, or about what it drew in its second season.
The cancellation comes after VH1 picked up the scripted drama “Hindsight,” which is set in the 1990s.
