In case you missed it, it’s officially cancelation season.

On the heels of The CW announcing the cancellation of both Frequency and No Tomorrow, FOX has revealed that it’s bidding farewell to Rosewood.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Rosewood’s numbers significantly dropped after moving to Thursdays, which is most likely why the crime drama got the axe after just two seasons.

No one is more upset about the cancelation than the show’s lead, Morris Chestnut, who took to Instagram to confirm the cancelation and thank everyone for the journey.

“I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood’s journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show’s infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else,” Chestnut wrote on Instagram.

The actor shared a photo of himself in character and it just reminds how much we’re going to miss his character, Dr. Beaumont Rosewood.

I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood's journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show's infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else. FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the positive images it projected as all-inclusive. We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The #Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it's a part of life. When one door closes, two more can open… Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen, soon. Big and Small. #PEACE – MC

Chestnut concluded his post with a little wisdom and a lot of class.

While we are sad that Rosewood will not be getting another season, we’re so ready to see Chestnut take on new roles, both on the big and small screen.

Rosewood fans, are you sad to see the medical show go?
