It is being reported by TVLine that The CW has cancelled Professionals after one season. The news is not surprising, as the network is in the midst of a significant shift in content since being acquired by Nexstar Media Group. The series aired its 10-episode run last fall. For their part, the show's co-creators have stated their intention to shop it to other networks and platforms.

A spin-off of the 2012 film 'Soldiers of Forture,' Professionals stars Tom Welling as Vincent Corbo, a security professional whose job is to protect the interests of rich and powerful clients by any means necessary. When a medical satellite explodes on deployment, he is hired by billionaire futurist Peter Swann, played by Brendan Fraser, who suspects sabotage. As Vincent and his team investigate the disaster, they expose a lethal conspiracy involving Swann's corporate rivals, corrupt government officials, and a shadowy crime syndicate.
