ABC has canceled anthology crime thriller Secrets & Lies and comedyDr. Kenafter two seasons each.

Secrets & Lies, starring Juliette Lewis and based on an Australian format, exceeded ratings expectations in its first season in 2015, earning a Season 2 renewal. But the second season was held back last midseason, launching this past fall instead, a year and a half after the end of the first season. Ratings dropped, making cancellation virtually inevitable.

Dr. Ken, created by and starring Ken Jeong, also exceeded expectations in the early going but slipped in its second season. It aired on Friday behind Last Man Standing, which also was canceled.
