CBS has canceled “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” after two seasons, the network confirmed.

“Beyond Borders” never matched the success of its parent program, which was recently renewed for a 13th season. Season 2 of “Beyond Borders” is currently averaging a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 5 million viewers per episode, down 28 and 33 percent from its freshman run.

The spinoff of the popular CBS show “Criminal Minds” starred Gary Sinise and centered around a specialized International Division of the FBI tasked with solving crimes and rescuing Americans in danger while abroad. Alana De La Garza, Daniel Henney, Tyler James Williams, and Annie Funke co-starred.

Erica Messer served as series creator and executive produced along with Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper, and Adam Glass. ABC Studios produced in association with CBS Television Studios and The Mark Gordon Company.

The spinoff is the second returning show to get the ax from CBS, joining “2 Broke Girls,” which got canceled after six seasons.

CBS airs “Beyond Borders'” final two episodes Wednesday, May 17 at 9/8c.
