Whiskey Cavalier fans can rest now as their fight to keep the series alive following its May cancellation by ABC is now over.

On Sunday, series producer Bill Lawrence took to Twitter to declare that the spy action comedy, starring Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan in the lead roles, is dead and done.

As expected, Lawrence’s announcement left fans heartbroken, with many of them still in denial that the show they tried to save for one and a half months is ultimately not coming back.

Some fans, meanwhile, have more questions than ever following Lawrence’s announcement.  For instance, since the first season of Whiskey Cavalier was shot in London, Paris, and in Prague, a number of the show’s followers are asking if it’s possible to shoot the series somewhere cheaper just to move forward with a second season.

Though sad with the show’s final fate, a few fans have already accepted it and are just waiting for the kissing scene clip between Will and Frankie that Lawrence promised to release if the show wouldn’t be picked up for Season 2.

ABC cancelled Whiskey Cavalier on May 12th, four days after its 11th episode aired. Despite the cancellation, the network still broadcast the final two episodes of the show, officially ending its run on May 22nd.

“It was a tough decision, it was the last decision we made,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke explained when addressing the show’s cancellation during a Disney upfront press conference. “We thought we gave it a very strong launch in spring. But we lost audience. We felt the biggest opportunity was to try something new. We looked for other time slots but did not see a real opportunity to grow.”

With the show’s international sale appeal and the big investment Warner Bros. Television made in it, the studio reportedly shopped the series to other outlets and platforms for a sophomore season pickup. Apparently, producers were unsuccessful in finding a new home for the series.

In addition to Foley and Cohan, the series also starred Anna Ortiz, Vir Das, Tyler James Williams, Josh Hopkins, and many more.
