Despite an ending that left audiences expecting more, the TV series “True Lies” starring Modesto native Ginger Gonzaga won’t return for a second season.
CBS canceled the reboot of James Cameron’s 1994 action comedy film, according to an online story on Deadline.
“True lies” starred Steve Howey (“Shameless”) and Gonzaga (“She Hulk: Attorney at Law”) in the roles played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in the Cameron movie.
The series followed Harry Tasker, an international spy for a U.S. intelligence agency, and his wife, Helen (Gonzaga), who made the shocking discovery that her husband was leading a double life, according to the Deadline story.
The finale ended in a cliffhanger that fans won’t get to see played out.
The scene showed Helen and Harry safe at home with their kids, a story on TV Insider said. But in the final moments, the camera showed a van parked across the house.
“They think the danger’s passed,” a character said to a caller, according to the Insider story. “We take them apart now piece by piece. Begin phase three.”
Gonzaga is a Beyer High School graduate who has had several roles on television and in film.
