Time has finally caught up with The Catch: ABC has cancelled the con-man drama after two seasons, TVLine has learned.
The Killing alum Mireille Enos starred as private investigator Alice Vaughan, who learns that her fiancé Benjamin Jones (Parenthood‘s Peter Krause) is a con-man and sets out to track him down and bring him to justice. Shonda Rhimes was an executive producer, and the drama got a cushy TGIT timeslot after Scandal when it debuted in March of last year.
But ratings were mediocre from the start (5.8 million viewers/1.2 demo rating for the series premiere), and even a Season 2 reboot — refashioning the show as a light, sexy cat-and-mouse game between Alice and Ben — didn’t help matters.
Thursday’s cancellation caps The Catch‘s series run at a total of 20 episodes. But fans can get one more taste of the con-man game, at least: The Season 2 finale is slated to air tonight at 10/9c.
