"Necessary Roughness" has been canceled. The USA sports drama will not return for a fourth season.
“We are proud of this show and its writers, which had a unique ability to address topical subjects before they unfolded in real life on the sports pages,” USA said in a statement. “We want to thank Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, the incredible cast led by Golden Globe nominee Callie Thorne and our partners at Sony Television.”
"Bidding farewell to 'Necessary Roughness' & the 3 years I was BLESSED to have," she tweeted. "This show was bound tgthr w the blood, sweat, laughter & tears of an outstanding group of creators, producers, directors, designers, actors, an unparalleled crew, tried and true fans- Any and all of whom I would be lucky to call friend. I will miss all of u terribly. And as my old pal Dr Seuss likes to say---> 'Don't cry because it's over - Smile because it happened.' #Danicoforever"
