“The Exes” has been canceled by TV Land, the show’s star, Kristen Johnston said on Monday night.
“It’s official. LAST 6 eps of @The_Exes EVER start airing this Weds. Even great ratings can’t #SaveGoodTV,” the actress tweeted.
The comedy ran for four seasons before its demise.

Johnston went on to assure fans that she was OK, and has a number of other projects in the works.
“I’m fine. I’m working on HBO’s #GettingOn this week, as well as my own project I STILL can’t talk abt,” she wrote.
Johnston played divorce attorney Holly Franklin, who owned a New York City apartment inhabited by three of her divorced male clients (Donald Faison, Wayne Knight and David Alan Basche).
Franklin had recently been on a season-long search for a groom after discovering that she had neglected to cancel a long-forgotten wedding date. “She has a date and a venue, and no man,” Johnston told TheWrap in an interview last November. “So, for 12 episodes, that’s what she does — she tries to find a husband.”
The series was created by Mark Reisman, and executive produced by Reisman, Franco Bario, Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis.
The cancellation follows TV Land’s June finale of “Hot in Cleveland” and the end of “Soul Man” after its fifth season.
The series finale of “The Exes” will air Sept. 16.
