"Smash" filming has ended for the principal cast for Season 2 ... and maybe for good.

Several cast members including Megan Hilty, Debra Messing and Katharine McPhee took to Twitter to share photos and thoughts about the end of Season 2.


While no official word has come down the pipeline, this looks like it'll be the last season for "Smash." The show has struggled in the Nielsen ratings since its sophomore debut in February. Its most recent outing was adjusted up to 2.7 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, down dramatically compared to its Season 1 numbers.

In February, Hilty told HuffPost TV that she tries not to worry about ratings. "Listen, as an actress I realized a long time ago there are a lot of things out of my control," she said. "Those are the things I can't let affect me because what can I do? All I can do is show up and do the best work that I can and the rest is in everybody else's hands."

Hoping that picture are least means Sam will be back this season?

Also, if we can get Hilty back on Broadway for real, I'd be okay with that...

It will be interesting to see how much of a ratings lift that the "Voice" will give the show the week or two before it's sent off to Siberia Saturday.

That's sad, I really liked this show. But I couldn't really see it go on much longer. The plot kinda boxed itself in. How can they
Keep justifying recasting Marilyn?

I'm sad to see Smash go. I loved and adored it last season but I think they've tried to do way too much this season and are boring the viewers they already have by trying desperately to attract new viewers. It's a real shame because Smash started out with so much magic and charm. At least we can always enjoy the dvds. Thankfully we'll get to see how this story ends.

I really hope the writers give it a proper sendoff if it is the last season. I will be pissed if they don't.

Has anyone else heard rumors of Season 2 ending with a trip to the Tony's?
