TNT announced earlier todat thay “HawthoRNe” — the medical series that gained more attention recently due to rumors of an allegedly budding bond between co-stars Jada Pinkett-Smith and Marc Anthony — has been canceled.
“Hey everyone...if you don't know Hawthorne will not be returning for another season,” she wrote. “I want to say thank you to all the fans for beingHawthorne soldiers. All our facebook fans...twitter soldiers and viewers...you held us down. Of course you know there is more to come...believe it!”
The one-hour drama ran for three seasons on TNT. And while it had its loyal fans, its ratings were low (particularly in its third season) and it never sparked much buzz. That is, until recent days, when rumors of an alleged split between Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith (denied by the couple) led to additional rumors that Pinkett Smith and Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez’s estranged spouse, had become close.
Suggestions of a possible romance between Pinkett Smith and Anthony also have been denied, most recently on “Nightline” by Anthony himself, who called the affair allegation “laughable.” (See video below.)
Anthony has not commented about the show’s cancellation.
