Lifetime Cancels ‘Witches of East End’

Lifetime has pulled the plug on its supernatural drama Witches of East End after two seasons.

The drama, based on the Melissa de la Cruz book series of the same name, follows the Beauchamp family as they navigated their way through a complicated present while trying to avoid mistakes of the past.

Starring Julia Ormond, Rachel Boston, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Madchen Amick, Eric Winter and Daniel DiTomasso, the first season of Witches of East End averaged one million viewers and was a source of pride for the network. The series’ sophomore season saw a ratings collapse, hemorrhaging viewers and barely breaking one million viewers for the finale.

Had the series been picked up for a third season, viewers would return to a show with a dramatically different landscape, as major storylines would have followed Ingrid’s demonic pregnancy and the fallout from Dash and Killian switching bodies.

Given the series’ lackluster ratings, I doubt it’ll land on another network.
