UPDATED May 15, 2016: NBC's criminal dramedy Mysteries of Laura, starring Debra Messing, has been canceled following just two seasons. The short run was rather successful ratings-wise, with the second season peaking at a 1.2 demo rating, but the new dramas are apparently pushing it out of the way. The fact that production of The Mysteries of Laura is outsourced must have also contributed to the cancelation decision. Now the cliffhanger from the second series finale of The Mysteries of Laura should remain unresolved for good.
