The Protector has been cancelled after one season on the air. Lifetime will not be ordering any additional episodes of the freshman drama, which was a relative weak performer in the ratings.
The series, which follows a single mom balancing her career as a homicide detective with raising her twin sons, premiered in June and was watched by 1.9 million viewers. Ratings slipped in further airings, likely leading to the network's decision to not proceed with another season.
