ABC Family has announced that their critically-acclaimed series “Bunheads” would not return for a second season.
Due to low ratings, the network chose to cancel the family-friendly show, which was created by “Gilmore Girls” showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino, “Deadline” reports.
“’Bunheads’ is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired,” an ABC spokesperson said. “The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base.”
The spokesperson went on the explain that the long wait before the cancellation axe came down was due to an effort to figure out an economic way for the show to return, “but in the end it simply wasn’t possible.”
The series joins “The Lying Game” on the cancellation heap, after the teen drama was cancelled earlier this month.
ABC Family is said to be making room for new rookie dramas “The Fosters,” produced by Jennifer Lopez, and “Twisted,” both of which are expected to get additional episode orders.
“Bunheads” starred Broadway star Sutton Foster as a Vegas showgirl who moves to a sleepy California town and finds a life she never expected, learning to mentor four young dancers in the ways of life, love and dance.
