Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba are L.A.'s Finest no more.

The cop drama was officially canceled after two seasons on Spectrum Originals, PEOPLE has confirmed. Variety and Deadline first reported the news, Thursday.

The cancellation comes a little over a month after the show’s delayed season 2 premiere. The second season was originally set to debut in June, but Spectrum decided to postpone the police-themed show amid consecutive weeks of worldwide protests and calls for action against police brutality.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 2.0 Entertainment with Sony Pictures TV and Charter Communications, the show was a Bad Boys franchise spinoff, featuring Union's character from the 2003 blockbuster Bad Boys II.

Reprising her role as Syd Burnett, Union's police detective relocated to Los Angeles from Miami and found a new partner in Nancy McKenna, played by Alba.
