'Single Ladies' Canceled at VH1
The series, from Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment, will not return for a fourth season.
VH1 will not continue on with Single Ladies.
The music-themed cable network has opted to cancel the hourlong dramedy after three seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From executive producer Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment, the series was VH1's first hourlong scripted series.
"We've been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies," VH1 said in a statement. "Although we've decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show's fans for their support since the premiere in 2011."
The series, which stars Charity Shea, Denise Vasi and LisaRaye McCoy, is currently wrapping up its third run on the network -- which used an e-book written by New York Times best-selling author Ashley Antoinette to bridge the gap between its second and third seasons.
Single Ladies centered on three best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving that not all women have the same desires. The series had survived some cast turnovers when Vasi replaced former lead Stacey Dash, who exited the series in its second season.
In its third season, Single Ladies is averaging 2.2 million total viewers, on par with its sophomore run.
The decision to cancel Single Ladies comes two days after the cable network picked up 1990s-set scripted drama Hindsight to series. Hindsight is VH1's third original scripted drama, joining cheerleading entry Hit the Floor, which was renewed for a second season in July.
