It’s one and done for “Guilt,” Freeform’s drama about an American woman caught up in a murder case in London.

As first reported by Deadline, Freeform has opted not to go ahead with a second season despite the show’s creative team leaving several avenues open to explore in future episodes.

“Guilt’s” story, about a young woman (Daisy Head) who’s accused of killing her flatmate in London, bore some similarities to the Amanda Knox case, although its creators said the show was also taking inspiration from other media-heavy court cases.

The show didn’t make much of an impression on audiences, however, averaging just a 0.1 same-day rating in adults 18-49 and 331,000 viewers over its 10-episode run.

It did, however, leave a few plot threads dangling. The Aug. 22 finale revealed the killer’s identity but also left several plot threads open for a potential second season — including one of the characters, Prince Theo (Sam Cassidy), being shot.

Those questions, however, will be left for fans to play out in their own minds.
