The decision comes five months after our sister site Deadline reported that Lifetime and Sony TV were in a standoff with Hewitt over the creative direction of a potential third season. Hewitt was requesting that her real-life fiance and baby daddy Brian Hallisay play her character Riley’s baby daddy on the show — something producers balked at.

Ratings for The Client List slipped in Season 2, from 2.7 million viewers for the premiere to 2 million for the finale.
