VH1 Cancels ‘Single Ladies’
VH1 has announced that the hit drama series Single Ladies will not be renewed for a fourth season. VH1’s first hour-long scripted series stars LisaRaye McCoy, Denise Vasi, Charity Shea, D.B. Woodside, Travis Winfrey, Terrell Tilford, and new comer LeToya Luckett.
Single Ladies centered on three best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving that not all women have the same desires. The series had survived some cast turnovers when Vasi replaced former lead Stacey Dash, who exited the series in its second season.
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” VH1 said in a statement. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
So far this season Single Ladies has been averaging 2.2 million total viewers, which matching the numbers in its sophomore season.
The decision to cancel Single Ladies came a couple of days after the cable network picked up 1990s-set scripted drama Hindsight to series. Hindsight is VH1’s third original scripted drama, joining the drama Hit the Floor, which was renewed for a second season in July.
