The CW had picked up the first season of the series in 2023, which finished airing in December.

The Spencer Sisters followed a mother and daughter duo who team up to start a private detective agency. It pairs mystery novelist Victoria Spencer (Thompson) and her daughter Darby Spencer (Farber) who are mistaken as sisters as they tackle puzzling cases.

It also starred Thomas Antony Olajide, Edward Ruttle, Husein Madhavji, Ayesha Mansur Gonsalves, Rodrigo Massa, Kaitlyn Leeb and Adam Hurtig.

The Spencer Sisters was produced by eOne and Buffalo Gal Pictures and was created by Alan McCullough (Rookie Blue). McCullough served as co-showrunner with Jenn Engels (Sort Of) and the pair exec produced alongside Jocelyn Hamilton and Tecca Crosby from eOne and Phyllis Laing and Jennifer Beasley for Buffalo Gal Pictures.

Thompson gave fans a heads up that the series would not be returning in an Instagram post in March.

I think the @ctv is not picking us up,” Thompson wrote. “Thank you friends who enjoyed our little show!

“I am sad we won’t make more of #thespencersisters,” she continued. “I loved so much working in beautiful #winnepeg and acting with the wonderful @staceyfarber and the rest of our cast and crew. We had such joy acting together. Hoping to make you laugh with the wonderful words of our writers.”

She added, “When we got a late time slot on Friday night I was worried. And It’s a weird time with companies changing staff. Strikes. And the recalculating of our business. And we just got in the crossfire of too much change I guess.” Even so, “Our wonderful executives at @eone_tv fought the good fight!

“It was fun to be on @thecw as well. With a better time slot” (airing Wednesdays at 9/8c, from Oct. 13 through Dec. 13. 2023), she concluded. “And we did well. But alas. On to new frontiers.”
