Nickelodeon had a big hit with their Every Witch Way TV show but the cable channel decided to cancel the telenovela series after four seasons. That led to a spin-off series, WITS Academy, but now that show’s been cancelled as well.
WITS Academy follows “Guardian in training” Andi Cruz (Daniela Nieves) at the esteemed school for Witches and Wizards in Training. While trying to live up to expectations, she must get two of the academy’s toughest students to graduate. The rest of the cast includes Julia Antonella, Jailen Bates, Kennedy Lea Slocum, Meg Crosbie, Timothy Colombos, Ryan Cargill, Andrew Ortega, Lidya Jewett, Tyler Perez, Jazzy Williams, and Todd Allen Durkin.
The series debuted last October and ran daily for four weeks. The 20 episodes attracted about 1.3 million viewers and remained pretty consistent. Those numbers weren’t apparently good enough for Nickelodeon to order a second season.
The cable channel has been mum on the cancellation but castmember Durkin has not. He posted a photo from his new series on TBS and responded to follower questions asking if he was shooting season two of WITS.
He wrote, “it’s another TV show I’m doing. Wits was canceled. There is no more Wits.”
Durkin continued, “there’s no way there will be another season at this point. Nickelodeon has decided not to have another season of Wits Academy. It’s the end. Sad but true. Done. … No more Andi, Agamemnon, Cameron… All over. The end. Bye bye.”
So, it turns out that the two-part episode on October 30th will be the last episode of the series. Hopefully, the writers and producers will share how the cliffhangers would have been resolved.
What do you think? Did you like the WITS Academy TV show? Do you think that it should have been cancelled or renewed for season two?
