Fox has declined to commission a further nine episodes of crime drama Lie To Me.

The third season will now consist of just thirteen episodes, according to Deadline.

The decision will see the series, which stars Tim Roth as genius psychologist Cal Lightman, complete its current run on January 31. New cop drama The Chicago Code will then fill the Monday 9/8c slot from February 7.

A source for the network has reportedly insisted that the show has not been cancelled. A final decision on the future of Lie To Me is expected to be made in the spring.

The most recent episode of the show attracted a season high of over 6.3m viewers.

Lie To Me will return to Fox in January 2011.
