Covert Affairs has been cancelled after five seasons, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed.

The spy drama starring Piper Perabo recently wrapped up its fifth season that included a cliffhanger ending.

In the season 5 finale, Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop) proposed to Annie, when she was offered a job on Joan's (Kari Matchett) CIA task force. Auggie planned to leave the agency, while Annie weighed McQuaid's marriage proposal.

And in the final moments of the episode, Annie makes her decision, but the show ends before fans could find out what she has to say.

Last month, executive producer Chris Ord told TVLine that he and producer Matt Corman "wouldn't be happy" if the season 5 finale, which ended with Annie contemplating a marriage proposal from Ryan and a job offer from Joan, was the series' last episode.

"We want the show to continue," he said. "We're very proud of this finale. So at least we feel if we didn't come back, we'd be going out on a high note. We don't really like to think about it in those terms."

Corman added, "For us, these characters and the actors we're working with are so infinitely talented that we think we could keep telling stories forever. Maybe we're delusional in that sense, but we just love this show so much. We don't like to think about it in terms of the end."

Producers, star Piper Perabo and her cast-mate Peter Gallagher took to twitter to thanks fans for their support.

While, the actors have made peace wih the network's decision, fans vented their ire on Twitter. Below are some tweets that heartbroken fans sent.
