Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale announces her new CW show Life Sentence has been axed

Pretty Little Liars veteran Lucy Hale has some sad news for her fans.

The actress shared with her near-eight million followers on Twitter on Tuesday (May 8) that her new CW series Life Sentence has unfortunately been cancelled after just a single season.

“I was emotionally attached to this story and to everyone involved so I’m a little shell shocked right now,” she tweeted. “I feel fortunate that we got to tell a really beautiful story.

“Somewhere in the universe the Abbotts will continue their dysfunctional lives & Stella will continue to be a manic pixie dream girl. That chapter is closing before I want it to, but taking this as a life lesson. Things don’t always work out in our favor & it’s up to us what we do with it.”

Digital Spy has reached out to The CW for confirmation that Life Sentence has officially been dropped, but the network declined to comment.

Life Sentence cast Hale as terminal cancer patient Stella Abbott, who is left to face the consequences of all the impulsive choices she’d recently made when her disease is miraculously cured.

Life Sentence was Hale’s follow-up after playing Aria Montgomery for seven seasons on the hit YA drama Pretty Little Liars. For those hoping that Life Sentence‘s axing could free up Hale to join Pretty Little Liars spin-off The Perfectionists, we’d suggest tempering those expectations.

Hale recently said: “I don’t think I will be in the spin-off. I will definitely be supporting and watching. I think they’re actually going to film in Vancouver, so I might go, like, stalk the set a little bit.”

Life Sentence will airs its series finale on Friday, May 25 on The CW in the US.
