Jada Pinkett Smith's medical drama HawthoRNe has been cancelled.

In a statement today, network TNT confirmed that the show, which also starred Michael Vartan, Vanessa Lengies and Marc Anthony, will not return for a fourth season.

A representative said: "TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe. [We] truly appreciate the tremendous dedication of everyone involved."

Paying tribute to the programme's cast, they added: "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."

On her WhoSay page, Pinkett Smith announced to fans: "I want to say thank you to all the fans for being HawthoRNe soldiers.

"All our facebook fans...twitter soldiers and viewers...you held us down. Of course you know there is more to come...believe it!"

TNT is currently developing a new drama series called Bishop To Pawn, which focuses on a private investigator who runs his business from a pawn shop, and H.I.K.E. from Forest Whitaker, which follows a female police officer balancing her career with her marriage and children
