CBS’s obsession with “Stalker” is over.

The network canceled the freshman drama, which starred Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q as a pair of detectives with the threat assessment unit of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The series, created by Kevin Williamson, still has two more shows to air in its 20-episode run.

The series’ most recent episode on April 27 was actually up in the ratings in its new Monday at 9 p.m. timeslot, posting a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers — a 17 percent improvement over its most recent original before that in February.

Last week, CBS also canceled the freshman drama “Battle Creek,” from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and “House” boss David Shore.

Also last week, the network gave a series order to Greg Berlanti‘s superhero drama “Supergirl.”
