USA's "Fairly Legal" has been canceled, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The news come just after the network canceled another series, "Common Law."

"Fairly Legal," which starred Sarah Shahi, had dropped to 2.5 million viewers by the end of its second season. There were hopes that a showrunner change and casting switches might attract new viewers, but the overhaul apparently wasn't enough to save the legal drama.

"Sarah Shahi is undoubtedly a star and we're thrilled she'll be joining our sister network NBC on 'Chicago Fire,'" USA told Deadline in a statement. "We are proud of 'Fairly Legal' and thank the very talented cast and crew for two fantastic seasons."

On Twitter, Shahi -- who also lends her voice to the newly released "Wreck-It Ralph" -- thanked fans for their condolences and teased another new project.
