    You can not end it , and just cancel it ! Come on , this show teaches many young girls and guys on what they may go through in highschool & makes them realize so much . After I finished the last episode, I did look up if there was any chance there was more coming up . You need to continue this . I love watching this show I honesty can say it helped me in many ways , please don’t end it . Look this show inspires a lot of people . Me as a becoming freshman in a few weeks or less, helped me in a way to kinda look out on highschool & how highschool can likely turn out in most of us . So please such as me & obviously other people want this or more likely need it as to seem we ain’t the only ones feeling related to ‘ The Secret Life Of The American Teenagers ‘ situation.

    I think They should make another season where Amy and ricky still end up together and raise their son. I hate the fact Ben trys still to be with Amy when Amy is in love with ricky I think she would still marry ricky in the end. They do make a cute couple.

    i think it was horrible to end like that. There should be a season 6 showing amy going to college and how her and Ricky get through it. And showing how and rain likes New York. This is not right. It needs to go on

    I think the show should not be cancelled for many reason . This show can help many teenagers is very helpful on how a teenager goes and have sex and the trouble that it cause by not thinking of the consequences .My opinion is that you guys should make and season 6 .Also I really love this show .

    Hope you count my opinion and renew the show .!!
