After hearing the news of cancellation, Jane Lynch thanked "Angel From Hell" fans for watching. CBS

“Angel From Hell” is already headed back to the afterlife. The CBS comedy was pulled from the schedule this week, and tweets from the show’s stars reveal that it won’t be coming back. Actress Jane Lynch thanked fans for their support on Twitter.

“Oh my newly minted #anghellions,” she wrote. “Thank you for supporting our show! It is so sad but what a joy was had.” She also wrote another message on Instagram.

“Angel From Hell” followed Allison (Maggie Lawson), a perfectionist who suddenly had to deal with Amy (Lynch), an eccentric guardian angel. The comedy debuted with 8.1 million viewers, but lost audiences each week. By the fifth episode they were down to 6.3 million pairs of eyeballs. Those numbers aren’t considered the worst, but clearly, CBS didn’t think they could make a comeback. Deadline reports that there were also rumors of creative conflicts behind-the-scenes, which may have contributed to the decision.

Lynch’s co-star Kyle Bornheimer, who played Brad on the comedy, reacted on social media as well. He admitted that he didn’t expect “Angel From Hell” to be gone so soon.

“And to fans of the show – thank you so much for supporting us,” he added. His co-star Maggie Lawson didn’t write out a tweet immediately, but she did retweet one of Bornheimer’s messages. “Signing off from the #TweetLounge one last time,” he wrote. “Grateful for the chance CBS gave us and for all the extra guac I now have.”

It isn’t clear if fans will get to see the rest of the first season at some point. Only five of the 13 episodes had aired in the 9:30 p.m. EST slot on Thursdays. A “Big Bang Theory” rerun will replace “Angel From Hell” this Thursday until “2 Broke Girls” permanently occupies the slot starting Feb. 18.
