The Client List: Cancelled on Lifetime, No Season Three

client list cancelledLifetime has pulled the plug on The Client List. There won’t be a third season of the Jennifer Love Hewitt drama.

The Client List began as a Lifetime movie and then became a TV series. It follows a housewife and mom (Hewitt) who’s abandoned by her husband. To support her family, she starts working at a spa that turns out to offer more than just massages. Others in the cast include Loretta Devine, Colin Egglesfield, Rebecca Field, Naturi Naughton, Alicia Lagano, Kathleen York, Brian Hallisay, and Cybill Shepherd.

Season one averaged 2.51 million viewers and that led to a second season renewal. Those 15 episodes drew 2.05 million.

The third season renewal was supposedly being held up because Lifetime and the producers were trying to figure out how to handle Hewitt’s real-life pregnancy. Hewitt, who is also an executive producer, wanted the character played by her real-life fiancé Brian Hallisay to be the fictional baby’s dad as well.

This demand is at odds with the plans of Client List’s showrunner who wanted Colin Egglesfield’s character to be the dad.

According to Deadline, Lifetime and Sony TV became tired of the dispute and have now pulled the plug.

Since season two of Client List finished in June, Lifetime has found success with two new series — Devious Maids and Witches of East End — so they probably feel like they no longer need Client List.

What do you think? Are you sorry that The Client List has been cancelled?

I am very upset to hear of The Client List being cancelled!! Leaving us with a cliff-hanger of an ending!! That is just RUDE!! You easily could have changed things up – given the lead role to another character, or introducing someone new in Jennifer’s place!! This just pisses me off that you would do such crap to your faithful viewers!!

I cant believe they cancelled this show. I for one loved it. I will miss it terribly I could watch this every day. I use to hate when the season would end and would have to wait for the next season to begin now not having this is just another reason I wont be watching lifetime tv as much as I use to. I will find something else to watch on a regular basis in place of this show even though I would prefer to watch The Client List. Come on Lifetime bring this show back give your viewers what they want. Yes they have other good series if you are into those kinds of shows but none that compared to this one and none that has the zany crazy spectacular pizazz and class Hewitt brings to The Client List. Lifetime your viewers pay extra on our cable bills to get your channel so give us what we want after all we pay for it and you reap the rewards by getting the ratings you want.

I can’t believe they are withdrawn the new series over some ridiculous disagreement that they can’t overcome!!! To think that they have replaced it with two other pointless programmes. I really do hope they can sort the issues with lifetime and Sony and will be filming/showing series 3 very very soon!!! Look forward to my Monday night entertainment being shown soon.

im sorry to hear that it was cancalled that was a show I was actually watching and liked ,Not some witchcraft bull shit stuff you have on there now that is unrealistic.

I hate that this show is cancelled I loved this show. This just goes to show u that the celebrity’s can’t have a family because the producers doesn’t want them to to have a baby cuz they don’t want to take the time to write it in the show. If they didn’t want her pregnant on the show then why not wait till she after she had the baby and then start shooting for season 3 or do like soap operas does just hide her stomach with flower arrangements big bags tables chairs and other things

So sad that such a great show is gone seems as though whenever a good one comes along & gets people hooked they pull it & leave you hangin

That’s Hollywood for you if you have are from Texas or your a conservative and they know it your out. I thought this was freedom of you you are but the top to the bottom they don’t follow those freedom acts. I have seen to many Texans get the short end of the stick. Well we have a saying in Texas if you don’t like us stop making money off our history and shut your damn mouth. This LADY has more class then any other crazy actresses out there they sale there soul to the DEVIL for a dollar.
