“Life Sentence” has been canceled at The CW, the show’s star Lucy Hale said on Twitter Tuesday.

“I was emotionally attached to this story and to everyone involved so I’m a little shell shocked right now,” she tweeted. “I feel fortunate that we got to tell a really beautiful story.”

“Somewhere in the universe the Abbotts will continue their dysfunctional lives & Stella will continue to be a manic pixie dream girl,” Hale added. “That chapter is closing before I want it to, but taking this as a life lesson. Things don’t always work out in our favor & it’s up to us what we do with it.”

The drama did not perform well ratings-wise, starting off slow and didn’t get much better as the season progressed. The CW has yet to respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Hale starred as Stella Abbott, a young woman who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. She then decides not to live as much as she can before succumbing to cancer. Unfortunately, that decision proves to have been a mistake after her doctors inform her that her illness has miraculously been cured.
