'Ransom' cancelled after three seasons

Drama 'Ransom' will not return for another season, 'CBS' network has announced.

The official Twitter handle of the show, which followed crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont (played by Luke Roberts), shared the news on Twitter on Wednesday.

"#Ransom fans: We're joyful and lucky to have shared these past three seasons with you. Unfortunately, we have to bid the CriRes team farewell.

"We loved telling stories about strong, smart characters resolving conflicts with words instead of violence. Thank you for watching," the statement read.

A source told 'Entertainment Weekly', the producers pulled the plug on the show due to financial crunch.
