Word is out that True Lies has been cancelled by CBS after one season. The news comes the week before next Wednesday's 2-hour finale, which will now serve as the action dramedy's series ender.

The cancellation does not come as a surprise, as the show has struggled to find a sizeable audience since its early March premiere. Airing Wednesday nights, it was consistently one of CBS' lowest-rated scripted originals.

Adapted from the hit 1994 film of the same name, True Lies follows an unremarkable suburban homemaker who discovers her unremarkable computer-consultant husband is leading a double life as an international spy for U.S. intelligence agency Omega Sector. This shocking secret puts the couple and their kids in jeopardy, forcing them to work together on covert missions in the international world of espionage.
