As Fox gets ready to bring in new shows, it is also clearing away old ones, including Rosewood, which it is cancelling after two seasons.

The show, which stars Morris Chestnut and Jaina Lee Ortiz, drew in good ratings when it launched in 2016 in the spot on Wednesday leading up to Empire, but when it was moved to Thursdays and away from Empire, it struggled to keep its ratings up and was eventually moved to a Friday spot, where it simply languished.

Following the cancellation, Chestnut took to Instagram to post a message to his fans, writing: “I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood’s journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show’s infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else.”

“FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the images it projected as all-inclusive,” he added. “We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The #Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it’s a part of life. When one door closes, two more can open… Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen, soon. Big and Small. #PEACE
