TNT, which this summer renewed Franklin & Bash but not Men of a Certain Age, has decided the fate of another of its series.

“TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe,” reads a statement from the cabler. “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.”

HawthoRNe, which aired its Season 3 closer on Aug. 16, this summer averaged 3.3 million viewers — placing it behind sister shows such as Memphis Beat (4.3 million), Leverage (4.8 mil) and Franklin & Bash (3.9 mil).

Fence-rider Memphis Beat‘s own odds of renewal are currently “50/50,” reports Deadline.com.
