Game of Thrones actress Indira Varma's legal drama For Life will definitely not be coming back for a third season.

Also starring Marcella's Nicholas Pinnock, network ABC axed it after two seasons in May, but IMDb TV promised a shot at redemption by striking a deal to stream the existing episodes and see how many viewers turned up.

According to TVLine though, the free streaming service from Amazon has now chosen to move on.

Pinnock, who portrayed convict-cum-lawyer Aaron Wallace, commented on the situation earlier this year: "I am in no way bitter with ABC for not renewing For Life for a third season.

"ABC has been nothing but supportive of our show, and has championed it from the start. So I won't have you bad-mouthing them. I can tell you firsthand how great they have been to me and to our show.

"Sadly, the live audience numbers didn't reflect and equal the social media attention. The catch-up numbers were really good, but that doesn't fit the model of a network show."

Signing off, the Criminal: UK cast member further expressed his gratitude to ABC for "two really powerful seasons, and for giving us life to explore this journey and a home for an audience to visit us in".
