ABC Family has officially cancelled Bunheads after one season and 18 episodes. The fate of the Sutton Foster dramedy had been up in the air since the last episode aired in February.
In a statement, the cable channel said, “Bunheads is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired. The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base. Recognizing all of this, we took extra time to try and find ways to bring the series back for another season, but in the end it simply wasn’t possible. We wish the cast and crew the best in their future endeavors.”
Bunheads debuted last June to 1.64 million viewers but the ratings declined over the course of the season. ABC Family ordered more episodes but when the show returned in January, the numbers got worse and worse.
The cable channel was supposedly working on finding ways to cut costs so they could bring the show back but those efforts were unsuccessful.
The last episode of Bunheads aired on February 25th and unfortunately left several storylines unresolved.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear the show’s been cancelled? What would you liked to have seen in season two?
