Cross The Client List off Lifetime's schedule. The racy drama, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as a masseuse at a happy-ending massage parlor, has been canceled after two seasons, Us Weekly can confirm. (TV Line was first to report the news.)

The series' cancellation comes five months after Deadline reported that Hewitt was in a "creative standoff" with Lifetime and Sony execs over how the show would handle her pregnancy. (As Us Weekly exclusively revealed in June, the Party of Five alum, 34, is expecting a baby with costar and fiance Brian Hallisay.)

According to Deadline, Hewitt wanted her real-life love to play her character's baby daddy in season three. But network bigwigs reportedly balked at the idea. (A rep for Hewitt told the site they were exploring "many story lines" for the now-defunct third season. "Any suggestion that we are not doing our best to develop a great season is simply not accurate.")

In any case, Hewitt will have her hands full soon enough, even without the show. "We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," the actress and Hallisay told Us of their baby joy.
