ABC has canceled comedy “The Real O’Neals” and drama “The Catch,” both of which aired two seasons, the network announced Thursday.

Shondaland drama “The Catch” starred Mireille Enos as an engaged woman on the brink of being conned by her fiance. But the tables are turned on him after it’s revealed that she’s actually a fraud investigator, and a high-stakes game of cat and mouse ensues.

The show was heavily retooled and became more of a romantic comedy for Enos and co-star Peter Krause in Season 2.

It struggled in ratings and never caught on with audiences as much as its Shondaland counterparts “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder,” which have all been renewed.

“The Real O’Neals” starred Noah Galvin as a teenager whose coming out leads to many more secrets being revealed in his close-knit Catholic family.

Galvin stirred up controversy last year after an interview with Vulture, though showrunner Casey Johnson insisted ABC was supportive and there was never any threat to cut episode orders or cancel the show.

“The Real O’Neals” and “The Catch” join a busy day of cancellations at ABC, which also gave the axe to “Imaginary Mary,” “Secrets and Lies,” “Dr. Ken” and “American Crime.”

The network renewed “black-ish,” “Agents of Shield,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Designated Survivor” and “American Housewife” on the same day.
