“We are proud of this show and its writers, which had a unique ability to address topical subjects before they unfolded in real life on the sports pages,” said USA in a statement. “We want to thank [creators] Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, the incredible cast led by Golden Globe nominee Callie Thorne and our partners at Sony Television.”

The series, which was led by Callie Thorne as a psychologist, averaged around four million viewers per week over three seasons.
