State of Georgia: ABC Family TV Series Cancelled, No Season Two

State of Georgia canceled season twoABC Family execs have certainly been busy with the renewals and cancellations. The cable channel has renewed Make It or Break It and Switched at Birth, ordered more episodes of The Lying Game, and cancelled The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Now, they’ve cancelled sitcom State of Georgia as well.

In the TV series formerly titled The Great State of Georgia, Raven Symone stars as aspiring actress Georgia Chamberlain who leaves the south to pursue her dreams in New York City. She’s joined by Josephina “Jo” Pye (Majandra Delfino), her timid best friend and a graduate student in physics. Honey Dupree (Loretta Devine) is Georgia’s nymphomaniac aunt who offers advice and owns the apartment where they live. Recurring characters are played by Kevin Covais, Hasan Minhaj, and Jason Rogel.

State of Georgia ran for 12 episodes, between late June and mid-August of this year. The first episode attracted 1.32 million viewers but the second installment fell sharply to 807,000 — a loss of nearly 40%. Subsequent episodes did even worse and the season (now series) finale attracted just 590,000 total viewers.

Despite the poor ratings, up until a couple days ago Symone was campaigning on Twitter for a renewal. She hasn’t tweeted since the cancellation notice came down.

Co-star Delfino tweeted, “State of Georgia fans thank you so much for watching! You’ve been simply the best. You even loved the crazy hair! Speaks volume(s). teehee x”

Rogel tweeted, “single tear ;(” and Delfino responded, “Totally. We’ll just have to do our own private nerds show and gear it towards Showtime.”

What do you think? Are you sorry that State of Georgia has been cancelled? Why do you think it didn’t attract a bigger audience? What would you have liked to see happen in season two?

    I didn’t even know there was a program with Raven Symone , state of Georgia, Raven’s the best , and would love to see her acting again making a come back in State of Georgia and but with Disney Channel instead with ABC Family! Since they don’t know a gem when it’s in their face

    I love this show! I have never laughed this hard on a tv show before, and trust me I watch a lot of TV.
    Personally the reason why it didnt become a hit is, 1 the promo sucked. It didnt make me laugh at all…..2 I think alot of people forget that you have to watch several episode until you can decide if its good or not. For example, I love six feet under but I had to watch the entire season for me to fall in love with it. And when it ended I cried a lot…
    I truly hope this show will come back…..:'(

    They shouldn’t have cancelled it. I really loved the show! I was also really hoping that there would be a Season 2. The show made me laugh but it also allowed me to relate because I’m a southern girl who wants to move to New York to be an actress. I really hope they bring it back. /:
