East New York is closing up shop after CBS canceled the cop drama.

The show’s star Amanda Warren shared news of the cancellation with fans Monday in an Instagram Story.

The actress included the caption, “Your support has meant the world to me. From the very bottom of my heart, thank you so much for tuning in and for believing in our show. See you on the next one!”

Warren plays Regina Haywood, the newly promoted deputy inspector of the 74th precinct in East New York, a working class neighborhood on the edge of Brooklyn.

The cast also includes Jimmy Smits, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Richard Kind, Olivia Luccardi, and Lavel Schley.

The drama premiered in October 2022 and has aired for one season. The show’s creators are William Finkelstein and Mike Flynn.

The season finale for East New York airs May 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

CBS also canceled the freshman drama series True Lies on Monday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show follows a housewife who discovers her bland computer consultant husband is a skilled international spy, and is based on the film by the same name.

The drama from creator Matt Nix stars Steve Howey and Ginger Gonzaga. The series finale of True Lies airs on May 17.

News of the two cancellations came on the same day CBS reversed its decision to end the Shemar Moore-led series S.W.A.T.

“We have listened to our viewers and their outpouring of passion for S.W.A.T. and we have reached an agreement to renew it for a final season of 13 episodes to air during the 2023-2024 broadcast year,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment and Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios, said in a joint statement. “We are pleased that we found a way to bring it back and give closure to the show’s storylines and characters, which audiences deserve.”

The show, which revolves around Moore’s character Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, a S.W.A.T. leader in the same community he grew up in, received praise from viewers for its diverse cast and storylines.

The actor and producer praised the decision to give the show a seventh and final season, after bashing CBS over the weekend for making a “f–king mistake.”

“We did it,” Moore told fans Monday on Instagram. “Thank you to all of you for the continued and amazing support!! Let’s go.”
