Jane By Design: Should It Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

ABC Family TV show Jane by Design canceled or renewedTonight, ABC Family airs the last episode of the first season of Jane By Design. Will the show be cancelled or be given a second season instead?

Jane By Design follows a quirky teenager who has a unique fashion sense. By chance, she gets hired at a hip fashion house and must juggle her job responsibilities while still attending high school. The cast includes Erica Dasher, Andie MacDowell, Rowly Dennis, India de Beaufort, Ser’Darius Blain, Brooke Lyons, Nick Roux, Meagan Tandy, Matthew Atkinson, and David Clayton Rogers.

The TV series debuted in January to 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The numbers for week two dropped about 30% but came back up again in weeks three and four.

ABC Family initially ordered 10 installments and those finished airing on March 6th. Rather than renew Jane By Design for a second season, the cable channel ordered eight more installments to be added to season one.

Those started airing in June and, to date, the first season of Jane By Design has averaged 1.29 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating.

Will it be cancelled or renewed? That’s hard to say. It’s the worst performing scripted series on ABC Family right now — but not by much. The latest episodes have performed about as well as the first batch, when ABC Family seemed happy enough with the numbers to order more episodes.

It’s not a positive indication that ABC Family hasn’t renewed it yet but a renewal could still be forthcoming. Either way, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear some news about the show’s fate.

But, what do you think? Should Jane By Design be renewed for a second season or cancelled? How does it compare to the other shows on ABC Family?

    ABC Family made a huge mistake when they cancelled Jane By Design and kept Bunheads and Baby Daddy. Really!? OMG! Bring it back ASAP!

    Jane by Design is one of the best shows out there! I really hope we’ll be seeing it come back for another season (and hopefully, many more!)

    I hope that the show will be coming back for a second season my daughter and I love this show, and we want to see Billy and Jane get together. It seems that everytime we get invested in a show with promise, it’s cancelled. Do not take away Jane By Design we need to find out the conclusion to her story.

    Please don’t cancel the show. You keep shows on that are trash but get rid of the good ones. That does not speak well for Disney.

    This is a really good show! Jane is a good role model in many ways to girls her age and close to her age. They would be foolish to remove it, with all the vampire? shows that our girls can’t relate to? and shows that we would prefer them not watching? Jane by Design shows a girl determined to follow her dream, ambition. It is good that a show shows a girl that is a better role model than most of the shows on today. Sad news if they cancel it. It shows that trash sales and decency is overlooked in television :( SAD

    ABC Family foolishly canceled shows which now live on through the annals of Netflix. Here’s hoping “Jane By Design” does not follow suit. Usually the plot, dialog and actors present a better crafted show ( reaching a broader audience) than say, “…American Teenager” or “Bun Heads”-( a Glimore Girls knock-off).
    This show has a chemistry; drawing viewers to tune-in on a weekly basis -awaiting more installments. Let the executives know- the show has NOT “Jumped the Shark”!!
