Levine revealed the cancellation news on his Tumblr, saying new episodes will still air through 2017:
I’m making this announcement to let you know that the second season of Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero will be the final season of the series.
We are finishing up the story we began telling in 2014. New episodes will air through 2017, leading up to our series finale. I’m really excited for you all to see our big, bombastic, super funny, visually purty, exponentially musical, big-time exciting and emotionally everything season 2.”
He also thanked the fans for their devotion to the show:
The most exciting part of making this show has been to see it resonate with an audience. To know you dig what we put into the universe is honestly the biggest gift. We made this stuff for you. And you’re inspired and make your own stuff because of what we did. And that truly inspires me. Thank you all.”
