CBS has decided to end the summer sci-fi series Extant after two seasons, however the network will be continuing its relationship with Oscar winner Halle Berry. If you’re keeping score, that leaves Zoo as the only 2015 scripted summer series to get a renewal order by CBS. Under the Dome recently wrapped up its run after its third season.

“CBS, Halle Berry and the producers have decided to conclude the Extant story after last season’s exciting and fitting conclusion,” said CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller. “Extant played an important role in expanding CBS’ lineup of original scripted programming in the summer. We are proud of the show’s success on the network, as well as its popularity on Amazon Prime Video.”

Series star Berry also commented on the show’s demise, saying she’s proud of the series and the work everyone did on the show. “This season seemed such a natural place to end Molly’s journey that I, along with CBS, felt it best served the story to leave it there. I’ve loved this experience working with such a talented cast and creative team,” stated Berry.

CBS and Berry will be teaming up on a new legal drama which Berry will produce. There’s no word yet on whether she’ll also be starring in the series.
