For four seasons, Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) has been confronting her terminal melanoma on Showtime’s hit The Big C.

Now, Cathy’s story will be wrapping up, as the network declared that the show’s upcoming fourth season will be its last. Throughout the show, the high school teacher and suburban wife has dealt with her impending death by living her life more impulsively. The next season will be formatted differently than those previous; instead of featuring 10-13 half-hour episodes, the story will be broken down into four hour-long episodes. Also wrapping up this year are Showtime’s Weeds and Dexter, both of which have had long runs.
