ABC has canceled freshman comedy “Cristela” and drama “Forever,” as well as “Resurrection,” after its second season.

The Friday comedy “Cristela,” which stars comedienne Cristela Alonzo, follows the young Mexican-American woman as she works to become an attorney while juggling her responsibilities to her traditional family.

“Forever,” starring Ioan Gruffod as an immortal detective, saw a steady ratings decline in its Tuesday night timeslot.

“Resurrection,” a zombie-themed drama about residents of a small town coming back to life, sometimes decades after they died, aired for two seasons, but recently hit series lows in ratings, much like the also recently canceled “Revenge.”
