“Covert Affairs” has been canceled.

USA Network pulled the plug on Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham’s CIA drama after five seasons, a network representative told TheWrap.

The NBCUniversal-owned network is discontinuing the show because of its low number of live viewers, despite the fact “Covert Affairs” did perform  well in live +3 and live +7 ratings. An individual with knowledge said USA will now be focusing on its other dramas, including “Suits,” “Royal Pains,” and “Graceland.”

Additionally, it has several dramas greenlit to series, including Matt Nix‘s “Complications,” and Sam Esmail‘s “Mr. Robot,” as well as several in development.

The Season 5 finale for “Covert Affairs” ended with several cliffhangers: Annie (Perabo) was trying to decide whether to take a new assignment with the CIA and whether or not to say yes to a marriage proposal. Auggie (Gorham), meanwhile, was considering moving away from covert operations all together.

Barring a Christmas special, the world may never know what the characters decided.

Matt Corman and Chris Ord created “Covert Affairs,” which co-starred Kari Matchett, Peter Gallagher Hill Harper. Universal Cable Productions produced.
