Proof: Canceled by TNT After One Season

at .  Updated at .

Thankfully, there was a fitting conclusion to unanswered questions in the two-part Proof Season 1 finale, as it ended up being the last word on the subject.

TNT opted not to renew the Jennifer BealsĀ starring vehicle about the afterlife for another season.

A Devastating Choice - Proof

In the Kyra Sedgwick produced series, Beals starred as a renowned surgeon who was asked by an eccentric, and dying, billionaire to find definitive proof on the existence of life after death.

The series allowed for discussions on both sides of the debate, which made for interesting television.

The series was picked up by the previous TNT bosses, and under the new regime, they're looking to shake things up a bit. While Proof had decent ratings, they skewed older. The hope now is to draw a younger, edgier audience and move away from procedural programming.

If you'd like to sample the series while we await news on other summer shows worth saving, you can watch Proof online right here.
