Field & Flockhart’s Brothers & Sisters axed

The show’s recent fifth season will be its last – due to falling ratings. The finale aired in America on Sunday (08May11).

Brothers & Sisters also featured Rachel Griffiths, Patricia Wettig, Rob Lowe, Ron Rifkin and Dave Annable among its all-star cast.

Field won a 2007 Outstanding Lead Actress Emmy Award for her portrayal of matriarch Nora Walker on the TV drama.
