The Michelle Dockery-led “Good Behavior” has been canceled by TNT after a two-season run, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap Tuesday.

The drama — based on a novella series written by Blake Crouch — starred Dockery as con artist Letty Raines, who becomes involved with hitman Javier Pereira (Juan Diego Botto).

“Good Behavior” premiered Nov. 15, 2016 on TNT. The “Good Behavior”s second — and now final — season wrapped in December 2017.

Executive producer Chad Hodge announced the cancellation news via Instagram Tuesday, writing alongside a photo of Dockery and Botto: “With a heavy heart I have to let you know that Good Behavior will not return for a third season on TNT. I’ve always said I could write about Letty and Javier for 500 episodes. Their relationship and place in the world live on the edge of something unique and beautiful and I’m more proud of creating their story than anything in my TV career thus far.”

“The experience of making Good Behavior was also the best of my career,” he continued. “Collaborating with Michelle Dockery, Juan Diego Botto and the entire cast… with pilot director Charlotte Sieling, producing director Mikkel Nørgaard, and all the episodic directors… with Blake Crouch and the writers… with my producing partners Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements… with our kick-ass creative team and crew… we were one family making this show and it was better because of every person who donated their creative lifeblood. You can see it on display in every episode currently streaming on Hulu. To our fans… our incredible fans around the world: THANK YOU. Thank you for loving what we made, for the letters and DMs and gifts, for the love. If I could keep writing the story of Letty and Javier for you I would. The last episode of S2 is not the ending. Actually I did write a bonus scene for you that would have been in Season 3… swipe left and you’ll see. So just know that Letty and Javier are out there somewhere… living their best lives (eh probably not lol). But they are alive. Their story continues. Though for now, as Letty would say… BYE. #GoodBehavior”
