The ABC broadcast network pulled the plug on a drama series just days after the show aired its season finale. Word surfaced late last week that “Mistresses” will not be coming back.
The show’s season four finale, which aired Tuesday, Sept. 6, will stand as the series finale, UPI reports.
Rochelle Aytes, who played April Malloy on the series, confirmed the cancellation Saturday on Twitter after word began circulating in the media.
Aytes tweeted: “Mistresses has unfortunately come to end of its road. Thank you to all the fans for supporting us! See you guys on the next journey!”
The soapy mystery series bowed in 2013 with Aytes, Yunjin Kim, Jes Macallan and Alyssa Milano in the key roles. Milano lasted two seasons, with her spot then filled for one season by Jennifer Esposito. Brett Tucker was on board for the full run of the show.
Executive producer Rina Mimoun reportedly said just before the finale aired that she and showrunner Josh Reims were making plans for a fifth season and had “one more year of story” left to tell.
