It is being reported that ABC has pulled the plug on Secrets and Lies, cancelling the low-rated drama after its second season. The move was somewhat expected after the series struggled to find an audience during its sophomore run last fall.

Based on the Australian series of the same name, Secrets and Lies was an anthology that focused on different crimes and characters each season, with Juliette Lewis starring as the same lead detective on each case. The show premiered as a mid-season entry in 2015 and fared quite well during its spring run. After a move to the fall for Season 2 in 2016, it unfortunately failed to maintain its momentum.
