Lucy Hale’s ‘Life Sentence’ Gets Cancelled After Season 1 | TV News
About a month ago, The CW announced which TV series will be renewed for new seasons in their 2018/19 schedule. There were just a few without any comment on them. Now we know that Life Sentence, the new series with Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, was canceled by the network after just one season. She even confirmed it on her social media channels.
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 ❤️
Life Sentence focused on the story of Stella, played by Hale, who finds out that her terminal cancer has actually been cured. The show then follows Stella and her family as they learn to live with all the choices she made when she decided to live every day as if it was her last one.
It isn’t that much of a surprise, after all. It struggled with ratings for the whole first season and next to fan favorites like Riverdale, it just couldn’t compete. But it isn’t the only canceled show. Valor, a military drama, was also canceled after the first season.
Other than that writing helps me to flee the reality and experience not just one life but hundreds of them. Why choose one if you can have many, right?
