OWN has cancelled All Rise after its third season. The news comes ahead of the legal drama's now-final 10-episode run, which will air beginning September 16.

"We are extremely proud of the positive impact All Rise has made in showcasing strong, accomplished Black female characters," said Tina Perry, president of OWN, in a statement. "We are so grateful to all of our creative collaborators and wish to thank the talented cast and crew for their dedication and incredible work on the series."

The show premiered on CBS in 2019 and was a decent performer over the course of its two seasons on the network. However it was hit with behind-the-scenes controversy when five writers reportedly left the show due to actions of showrunner Greg Spottiswood, who was subsequently fired. OWN stepped in and revived the show for Season 3, which premiered the first-half of its run in 2022.

All Rise follows the chaotic, but hopeful, lives of the judges, prosecutors, and public defenders at a Los Angeles courthouse as they work with clerks, bailiffs, and police to ensure justice is served to the city's people amidst a flawed legal process.
