After two seasons, Showtime has pulled the plug on the Boston-based TV series, ‘SMILF.’

In a statement, the network said: “After weighing a variety of factors, SHOWTIME has decided that SMILF will not move forward for a third season. The remainder of the second season will continue to air as scheduled on SHOWTIME through its series finale on March 31. We remain extremely proud of the two seasons of SMILF, and thank Frankie Shaw for her singular voice and unique creation, as well as the dozens of writers, producers, actors, directors and crew members both in Los Angeles and on location in Boston, who contributed to this exceptional series.”


The news comes three months after Brookline-native Frankie Shaw, the show’s star and showrunner, was being investigated for on-set misconduct by series producer ABC Studios.
