The political procedural starring Téa Leoni will conclude this fall with an abbreviated 10-episode sixth and final season, down from 20 episodes this season. "I think it's important to respect the audience," CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said in making the announcement. "It's hard when a show just goes away. We like to be able to do this, and send the show off with a great deal of respect and celebration," The Season 5 finale last month found Leoni's character resigning as secretary of state to pursue a presidential run. "What we’d love to do is get her on the campaign trail. We’d love to do a primary and an election next season," creator Barbara Hall told TVLine last month of her Season 6 plans. "We’ve always been about pulling back the curtain on the State Department and showing the process of diplomacy, so this is going to be pulling back the curtain on a campaign and everything that that involves."
