10 Things I Hate About You: ABC Family Series Cancelled, No Season Three

10 Things I Hate About YouThe executive producer of ABC Family’s 10 Things I Hate About You has confirmed that the TV show has been cancelled after two seasons. How quickly things can change.

Based on the film of the same name that starred Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Heath Ledger, 10 Things I Hate About You revolves around two very different high school sisters and their friends and partners. The series features the talents of Lindsey Shaw, Meaghan Jette Martin, Ethan Peck, Nicholas Braun, Dana Davis, Larry Miller, Kyle Kaplan, Ally Maki, Chris Zylka, Jolene Purdy, Allie Gonino, and Suzy Nakamura.

The series got off to a great start in July 2009 and ABC Family touted it as the cable channel’s biggest comedy debut to date. It attracted 1.6 million viewers and 734,000 in the coveted 18-49 demo. The news got even better by week four as the show’s ratings grew to 1.8 million viewers and 782,000 in the demo. Season one ended up averaging 1.3 million viewers.

To no surprise, ABC Family renewed the series for a second season of another 10 episodes.

Should 10 Things have been cancelled?

Unfortunately, something happened between seasons one and two. When the 10 Things returned in late March, a lot of the show’s viewers didn’t. Thus far, it’s been averaging just 983,000 viewers. That’s enough for ABC Family to pull the plug, just 10 months after the show’s highly touted debut.

The show’s creator and executive producer, Carter Covington, announced the show’s fate on Twitter: “Sad news… ABCFamily canceled the show :-( Thanks 2 our AMAZING fans – U R the reason I do this! Enjoy the last 5 eps – they’re fantastic!”

The remaining five episodes of 10 Things will continue to roll out until May 31st. Since the cancellation comes as a surprise, there’s no word if the series finale will include closure or if storylines will be left unresolved.

What do you think? Based on the ratings, did ABC Family make the right decision regarding 10 Things I Hate About You? Are you sorry to see the show go? What happened?

This was one of the best shows ever! I watch the same seasons again and again hopping that there will be more seasons to come. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the show. dont just cancel it because viewers have decreased, it will increase again. and when they say viewers have decreased so we shut it down it really offends many of us because we are the viewers too and we LOVE the show. If ‘the secret life of an american teenage could finish their who series then 10 things i hate about you should definitely continue!
PEOPLE LOVE THIS SHOW!! and if abcfamily needs viewers we’ll help, as we are the viewers. I know that everyone writes comments all day but i hope you can understand that this show really meant something! I dont watch tv much but this was the only show i watched! so please consider bringing it back! because the show does have viewers! WE R THE VIEWERS!

Exactly. My question is why they would put the show On Demand if they weren’t seeing if they should bring it back. I’m all for seeing what happens

This show was addicting! They need to at least finish it! It’s not fair that they left it at a cliff hanger. It was funny, thrilling, and realistic; it needs to be finished.
