Word is out that ABC has cancelled Speechless after its third season. The news comes a month after the comedy's most-recent finale, which will now act as its series-ender. Star Minnie Driver took to Twitter to express her sadness about the cancellation.

The half-hour series was a decent performer for the network for its first couple of seasons. A move to Friday in Season 3 saw its viewership drop considerably compared to the two years before.

Speechless stars Mini Driver as a devoted mother who puts her husband and three kids first, one of whom - her eldest child - has special needs. As she battles injustices, both real and perceived, the family looks for a fresh start after moving into their new home.
