Unfortunately, the freshman drama Tommy will not be returning this fall to CBS. Starring Edie Falco as the first female police chief in Los Angeles, Abigail "Tommy" Thomas uses her "unflinching honesty and hardball tactics to keep social, political and national security issues from hindering effective law enforcement in the Southland." 

Fans were quick to react to the news that Tommy would not see another season. "When CBS doesn’t renew #Tommy and you have to go cry and imagine all the good things that could have happened. Okay yeah I miss Edie Falco already," tweeted one person.

I will never know if Carol and Dr. Frost get together & what about the new chief of staff, Carol’s ex? How will he mix with the rest of the staff? #carolssecondact has been cancelled," tweeted one fan.  

Another person wrote: "Sad news, #CarolsSecondAct is not returning for a second season. This show deserved more laughs & love. I’ll never forget the memories of how the show turned out to be! Thank you."

Speaking to viewers, she explained: "In the middle of a primetime sitcom, we are doing a beautiful episode about faith and about God and about getting through trials and tribulations with our faith and our relationship to God. Adding, "We shot this last year not even knowing that this is exactly what is needed right now. ... I hope it touches you as much as it did me."
