E! has decided not to pick up a third season of its original scripted series “The Arrangement”. The decision comes two weeks after the second season finale which now serves as a series finale.
“The Arrangement” starred Josh Henderson, Christine Evangelista, Lexa Doig and Michael Vartan in a Hollywood love story shedding light on the darker side of fame.
It was a breakout hit last year, averaging 1.3 million total viewers and 725,000 in the 18-49 demo in Live+3. However, its ratings slipped by double digits this year.
“The Arrangement” was one of two original scripted series on E! along with “The Royals”. The latter recently wrapped its fourth season and its fate is unknown, but the firing of creator-showrunner Mark Schwahn due to sexual harassment allegations is not a promising sign regarding its future.
