A popular new series starring a genetic detective and her partner, the SVU detectives, has been cancelled after only two episodes.
“SVU Detective TV series has been officially cancelled,” the network said in a statement to PEOPLE.
“The show will be replaced by new series, which will premiere later this year.”SVUs DNA detective, Claire Danes, stars as the lead detective in the new show, which was developed by series creator Paul Scheer and his longtime friend, showrunner Adam Horowitz.
Danes plays the role of a detective, and Horowitz, the showrunner, is a forensic geneticist who investigates cases involving missing persons and genetic mutations.
The show is expected to debut in 2019.
The show, whose first episode aired on September 23, had been a breakout hit for SVU, which has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Series, the network added.
Schweizer and Horowitz will both return for the new series.
The series was created by Scheer, who created the detective series SVU and starred in the CBS series CSI.
Horowitz has worked on numerous other television series including The Vampire Diaries, Chicago Fire, and the CBS crime drama series CSI: Miami.
