WATCHMEN star MALIN AKERMAN’s U.S. TV comedy TROPHY WIFE has been cancelled after just one season.

Co-star Marcia Gay Harden confirmed the sad news in a tweet on Thursday (08May14), revealing she’d just learned the programme had been axed.

The Oscar winner wrote, “Thank u 4 watching beloved fans. Parting is such sweet sorrow… @TrophyWifeABC cancelled just hours ago.”

Akerman, who also served as a producer on the show in which she played the titular trophy wife opposite Harden and Bradley Whitford, also took to Twitter to break the news to followers, adding, “Thank u all for your loyalty and passion #TrophyWife fans.

We had a blast! Sad to see it go but happy to have lifelong family out there.”

The show debuted last year (13) and was considered a critical hit, but ratings have been dwindling this year (14).

The season finale next week (13May14) will be the series’ final episode.
