Bad news today for fans of ABC Family’s The Lying Game, it has been cancelled by the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

However, one of its series stars, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, General Hospital) took to his Twitter account to give his fans the update relating: “Sorry TLG fans. We will not be returning for a 3rd season. Thank u for your unwavering support in the past couple months.”   However, this also spells good news for GH fans, who know that recently Tyler signed on to continue with the ABC soap opera.  Might now, his stay be much, much longer?

Former ATWT and ‘Lying Game’ star, Alexandra Chando also took to Twitter to bring the news to her fan contingent stating, “To our awesome #lyinggame fans, thank you for these two amazing seasons. Unfortunately, ABC Family has decided not to bring us back for a third season. We so wanted to do 10 more for you guys! Thanks for your support and keep up with the cast to see what’s next for us!”

So what do you think of the decision to cancel The Lying Game?  Did you enjoy the series? Are you glad that Tyler is back on GH with the possibility of him staying put even longer? Weigh-in!

    I don’t know anything about The Lying Game because I never watched it… but I do know that Tyler Christopher is one very attractive young man… damn!

    I believe that when ABC decided to cancel the The Lying Game they informed Tyler with offering him a contract for GH .. ..
    I am delighted to have Tyler with GH!! :)

    Big Alexandra Chando fan but never really could get into The Lying Game though I still wanted the show to succeed. The way ABC Family kept taking the show off the air for long periods of time, I knew they were going to cancel it…especially with the success of The Fosters.


  6. Kathy G says:

    Maybe OWN could air a final episode to wrap it all up, just saying.


  10. Sandy says:

    Hard to see any show go if you are into watching a story line or a program. That’s where I am hooked on a DVR as I can record and binge watch as time allows just to help keep viewer ratings up on fav programs.


  11. john says:

    This is why I’m beginning to hate cliffhangers. When the show gets canceled, you’re left hanging.

    Still hoping for my Southland movie to wrap that up.


  12. cortneyyy says:

    I’m very upset about the show being cancelled! It was my favorite ABCFAMILY show!!! Grrrrr.

    abc’s lying game has to be one of the worst soap operas. Ratings for abc’s new soap opera starring denise richards though is doing very well w/c mustn’t help lying game. It’s too bad though that abc’s new soap opera is getting a lot of racist backlash. Leading char is rejecting a white female who’s throwing herself at him bec he’d rather be w/ African american female. It’s obvious that there’s still a lot of racism w/ backlash to abc’s hit soap opera and racism from cbs summer reality tv show. Yet hollywood keeps recycling storylines and shies away from tackling racism w/ their scripted night dramas and day soap operas. hollywood only tackles homophobia though but doesn’t have any of that fervor against homophobia as it does for racism issues.
