”Found out last week that Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season,” the actress wrote, accompanied by the saddest of emojis.
This news comes on the heels of OWN renewing freshman series David Makes Man for a second season. OWN also recently renewed four of its unscripted series: Love & Marriage: Huntsville, Ready to Love, Black Love and Black Women Own the Conversation.
Ambitions starred Givens as a ruthless Atlanta-based lawyer who was willing do whatever it took to satisfy her… ambitions. The short-lived series also starred Brian J. White, Kendrick Cross, Brely Evans, Erica Page and Essence Atkins. Averaging 720,000 total viewers and a 0.15 demo rating, among all current OWN shows it only outranked The Paynes and the aforementioned (and renewed) David Makes Man.
The show’s first season finale, which will now serve as its series finale, aired on Dec. 19, 2019. It was appropriately titled “Save the Best for Last.”
