Before the series was canceled, it received widespread critical praise. Fox canceled the show after only four episodes and triggered an online petition, which was signed in the hope that Fox would continue the show.

After the Fox show was canceled, she starred in Canadian features such as Niagara Motel and These Girls. Caroline also performed in Hollywoodland in 2006 and Breach in 2007. She also appeared in Surviving My Mother, where she played the lead role.

Caroline Dhavernas Parents
Her father, Sébastien Dhavernas, was born in Montreal, Quebec on January 19, 1950. He is an actor and has also dubbed French voices. This contributed to his fame as the voice of Roger Rabbit in the French version of the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
He attended Stanislas College, where he completed his classical studies. Sébastien also went to McGill University, where he studied sociology for a year and then attended the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Montreal.
In 1989, he urged the Canadian government to pass a law that would allow the majority of Quebec’s French dubbed television programs to be dubbed in the province of Quebec rather than in France. Finally, he was described as responsible for dubbing in Quebec’s Union des Artistes.
Her father played a role in the Quebec production of Les Miserables and was president of the Canadian Artists and Producers Professional Relation Tribunal (CAPPRT).
Her mother, Michèle Deslauriers, was born in Quebec, Canada, on 17 January 1946. She is an actress and is the voice that announces the stops of the subway in Montreal.
These announcements are mainly found on MR-63 trains, but in case of a service interruption or other emergencies, special announcements are played, which are also spoken by Deslauriers.
Both her father and mother are still together as a married couple and grandparents. They definitely formed the background for their daughters’ careers as actors and dubbing actors.
Caroline’s father Sébastien Dhavernas ran for the Liberal Party of Canada in the 2008 federal elections in the Montreal riding of Outremont. He fought against cuts in art funding introduced by the conservative government of Stephen Harper.
His decision to run was made just days before the election. He eventually came in second against Thomas Mulcair – the future party leader – and Sébastien was then appointed to a Liberal Party political commission headed by Serge Joyal.
In 2013, he ran in the local elections for Montreal City Council as a candidate for the Equipe Denis Coderre pour Montreal and narrowly lost to Sterling Downey of Projet Montreal.
He has written for the Huffington post on the French-speaking website of Quebec.

Caroline Dhavernas remains silent about her dating life, which has led people to speculate that she is either a workaholic or a lesbian. The lesbian speculation was further inflamed in Hannibal, where Caroline and another actress (Katharine Isabelle) were seen making out.

As Hollywoodpq.com reported on 14 July 2016, it was later discovered that she had a relationship with the 34-year-old television, film, and theatre actor and dubbing artist from Quebec, Maxime Le Flaguais. She had hidden this relationship because no other social website could testify to this information until Caroline passed on the news of herself and Maxime-her boyfriend attending a game in Montreal together at the Bell Center on October 22, 2016.
They were last seen together at the premiere of Pays de Chloe Robichaud on November 15, 2016.

It is still believed that she is in a secret relationship with Maxime, but is not married to him.
