The network announced Friday that it will not renew the medical drama, starring Jada Pinkett Smith as the head nurse at a Richmond, Va., hospital. The third season, which ended on Aug. 16 with a cliff-hanger, drew 2.86 million viewers. Last season, the series averaged 3.6 million — low even then for a TNT drama.

“TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe,” the network said in a statement. “TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in HawthoRNe. The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show’s talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with HawthoRNe nothing but the best.”
