Jennifer Love Hewitt won’t be returning to Lifetime anytime soon.
The Client List, starring Hewitt as a single mother-turned-prostitute, has been canceled after just two seasons on the network, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
The cancelation comes after reports of some backstage drama involving Hewitt expecting a baby with costar and real-life fiancée Brian Hallisay.
According to Deadline, Hewitt, who also serves as an executive producer, wanted her pregnancy written into the show and for Hallisay to play Riley’s baby-daddy, giving him a bigger story arc in season three.
“There are many story lines we are exploring,” a rep for Hewitt said about the behind-the-scenes issues. “So any suggestion that we are not doing our best to develop a great season is simply not accurate.”
“Last season Colin Egglesfield’s role was marginalized to accommodate Brian Hallisay’s increased screen time. As the couple got more serious she put him in more and more episodes (all, in fact) and changed the storyline to bring the estranged husband back and make him the greater love interest,” the source revealed.
Hewitt announced her pregnancy in June, a couple weeks before the season-two finale. “This is a wonderful time and we are looking forward to starting our family together,” the couple said in a statement.
The Client List finale brought in only 2 million viewers, down from the season one finale, which had 2.7 million people tuning in.
