While no one was looking, NBC-Universal cable network E! Entertainment cancelled The Arrangement TV show after two seasons. Perhaps they’re hoping the news that there will be no third season of the drama, will slip by largely unnoticed in wake of today’s Roseanne cancellation by ABC. Either way, The Arrangement cancellation means the season two finale which aired on May 13th, episode 2.10: “Suite Revenge,” will serve as The Arrangement TV series finale.
An E! Entertainment love story, The Arrangement stars Josh Henderson, Christine Evangelista, Michael Vartan, Lexa Doig, Carra Patterson, Autum Reeser, Katharine Isabelle, Courtney Paige, and Jacob Artist. The drama follows struggling actress Megan Morrison (Evangelista) who enters into a relationship contract with superstar Kyle West (Henderson), a devotee of the Institute of the Higher Mind (IHM). When Kyle and Megan actually fall for each other, it complicates their relationship. Soon, secrets from their past threaten their love and their arrangement.
The Arrangement: A Look at the Ratings
The second season of The Arrangement averaged a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 420,000 viewers. Compared to season one, it was down by 38% and 37%, respectively. Find out how The Arrangement stacks up against other scripted E! TV shows.
“Over two seasons, E!’s scripted series The Arrangement has taken viewers inside the world of an A-list movie star filled with secrets, scandal and romance,” a E! spokesperson said in a statement to Deadline. “While we have decided not to move forward with the series, we are incredibly grateful to the cast and our production partners.”
The Arrangement was one of two original scripted series on E! along with The Royals, whose fourth season aired alongside The Arrangement. The fate of that series, whose creator-showrunner Mark Schwahn was fired in December amid sexual harassment allegations, has not been decided.
