ABC Cancels 'For Life'

It is being reported that For Life has been cancelled by ABC after two seasons. The sad news comes three months after the legal drama wrapped its sophomore run, with its February 24 episode now serving as its series ender.
The hour-long show was never a ratings hit, but fared well enough in its debut outing to earn a second season. The renewal seemed in doubt at the time, as it didn't come until June. Still, it was the only new show on the network to return in 2021.
