Word is out that ABC has cancelled Call Your Mother after just one season. Star Kyra Sedgwick took to Twitter with the sad news, letting her followers know that next Wednesday's episode will be the comedy's series finale.

The half-hour series premiered earlier this year as a mid-season entry but ended up underperforming. Reviews from critics were generally unfavorable and it struggled to draw a sizeable audience on Wednesday nights after 'The Conners'.

Call Your Mother stars Sedgwick as Jean, an empty-nester mother who is not thrilled that she ended up alone while her children live great lives thousands of miles away. So she decides to reinsert herself into her family's lives, hoping that her kids realize they actually need her more than they thought.
