TV NEWS: JADA PINKETT SMITH HAWTHORNE series is axed!

There’s more bad news for Jada Pinkett Smith, as the medical drama she starred in, ‘HawthoRNe‘, has been axed after three seasons – according to a statement released by the TNT network!

 

The wife of Will Smith returned to the small screen for the first time in 18 years for the show, which premiered on U.S. network TNT in 2009, but TV execs announced on Friday (2nd September 2011) that they will not be renewing the contract for another series.
 

A spokesperson for the network said:

“TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe. TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in HawthoRNe. The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show’s talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with HawthoRNe nothing but the best.”

 

The finale of the third series, which also starred Michael Vartan and singer/actor Marc Anthony, aired in the States last month (August 2011).
 

The axe comes just weeks after tabloid reports falsely suggested Pinkett Smith had an affair with Anthony, prompting his split from wife Jennifer Lopez.
 

Anthony has vehemently denied the rumours, branding them “laughable”, while Pinkett Smith and her hubby have also been forced to defend their 14-year marriage amid separation rumours. They’ve recently been pictured together in various paparazzi snaps, looking like he perfect couple once more.
