Freeform is moving on. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has cancelled plans for the TV show Unrelated.
From Kenya Barris, the sitcom “follows Becca (Jordin Sparks) and her newly discovered half-sister Jesi (Gigi Zumbado), as they’re thrown into each other’s lives by an online genetics test and have to figure out how to go from strangers to sisters.” The cast also includes Matt Shively, Jessika Van, and Davi Santos.
Although Freeform ordered Unrelated to series in 2018, it looks like the network has put the project into redevelopment. Since being ordered, the series has hit a few speedbumps.
First, the titled was changed from Besties to Unrelated and the original showrunners were replaced. Now, it looks like Unrelated is effectively cancelled for now.
