The primetime soap Mistresses, which starred The Young and the Restless' Justin Hartley (ex-Adam Newman) and Days of our Lives' Camilla Banus (Gabi Hernandez), has been canceled and will not see a season five.

ABC has delivered yet another cancellation shocker to soap fans. The network has decided not to renew the primetime drama Mistresses, which starred The Young and the Restless' Justin Hartley (ex-Adam Newman) and Days of our Lives' Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez).

Deadline reports the network will not make a season five, meaning the season finale that aired last week will be all that fans of the drama will see in terms of a conclusion.

Some television critics aren't exactly surprised by the cancellation of the summertime soap, considering the show's history. It began filming in Los Angeles with Alyssa Milano as the lead, relocated to Canada in order to skimp on production costs and lost Milano in the process, hired Jennifer Esposito to fill the void, lost Eposito for season four, and then moved production back to California after it received a tax incentive from the California Film Commission.

The cancellation, which follows that of ABC's Nashville and Castle, and Lifetime's Devious Maids, seems to fall in line with ABC's new president's desire to cut down on the network's "soapy serials." Lifetime is partially owned by ABC.

Meanwhile, ABC has recently seen success with game shows in the off-season and, as a result, seems to be doubling down on that type of entertainment rather than scripted series. The network renewed all four of its summer game shows (Celebrity Family Feud, $100,000 Pyramid, Match Game, and To Tell The Truth).

Banus landed the Mistresses role of Kylie earlier this year, while Hartley took on the role of Scott Trosman in 2014.

What do you think about ABC’s decision to cancel Mistresses? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
