"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.
