The Client List: Season Three Renewal in Jeopardy

Client List season 3 or canceled?While season two of The Client List didn’t perform as well as the first year, the ratings aren’t what could cause the Lifetime show to be cancelled.

Featuring the talents of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Colin Egglesfield, Loretta Devine and Cybill Shepherd, the second season of The Client List averaged 2.06 million viewers with a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That’s down from year one’s 2.51 million and 0.9 demo rating.

According to Deadline, the third season renewal is being held up because Lifetime and the producers are trying to figure out how to handle Hewitt’s real-life pregnancy. The actress is more than three months along.

Hewitt, who is also an executive producer on The Client List, wants her real-life fiancĂ© Brian Hallisay to be the fictional baby’s dad as well. Playing Kyle Parks, Hallisay started as a recurring performer but then became a series regular.

This demand is at odds with the plans of Client List’s showrunner who wants Colin Egglesfield’s character (Evan Parks) to be the dad. Lifetime hasn’t made a decision yet but reportedly doesn’t want Hallisay.

Supposedly both sides are willing to walk away over this disagreement but a representative for Hewitt said, “There are many story lines we are exploring… So any suggestion that we are not doing our best to develop a great season is simply not accurate.”

What do you think? Which character should be the baby daddy? Do you think the series should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

    Love the show! Would hate for it to get canceled! it truly make my day when I get to watch it I recently changed tv providers and my first search was The Client List! for my DVR. For who the dad should be I would have to say the one night stand not Kyle or Evan just to through a curve ball and bring him back into the picture.

    My husband and I absolutely love this show. If we are going to miss a episode we DVR it. Please bring the show back. If you are going to write the pregnancy in then my vote is for the one night stand or Evan. Makes the show more interesting.

    I really hope that this show comes back and when it does if her pregnancy is going to be wrote in think it would be a better story line if the one night stand she had was the father.Then her and Kyle have to work it out,because remember she had the one night stand to get money to help Kyle out.So they could make this very exciting.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE SHOW.
    I think the dad should be Evan. It will make for a very interesting plot line.
    This show has many, many fans, please don’t disappoint us.

    Please don’t cancel the show, I am such a big fan and I know there are many others. I think Evan should be the dad, that would make it a much more interesting story. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE SHOW!!!!!!!

    Yes, Please back a third season of the Client List. I agree, don’t make Kyle the baby’s dad, boring! It would much more interesting to make Even or the one night stand the baby’s dad. Much more twists and turn to go with. Pease bring back the third season. I’m waiting to see what happens next. You have my interest very much in this series.

    Love love the show! Please don’t cancel. A good story would be a little slip up while Kyle was away.., This would juice up all story lines if it were Evans.

  10. Stef says

    I would love to see the show continue as well. Make it even more interesting by bringing back the one night stand she had as the potential baby-daddy!

    I would love to see another season, making Kyle the baby’s daddy would be to boring. As it would make for a more dramatic season if Evan was the dad because it would creat a more interesting season. Because it is his brother. And she and Kyle just got back together. Who really wants to see her pregnant by her own husband. Boaring! I love the show and just feel the story would be better suited if Even ended up the baby daddy.
