The dance room is officially closed.
Following weeks of speculation and fear by fans, ABC Family announced this afternoon that it has canceled Bunheads after just one season.
“Bunheads is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired,” a network rep in a statement. “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.”
The Amy Sherman-Palladino-created series found critical acclaim and a passionate viewer following. Just not, alas, a widespread one. The season finale was only watched by about one million people.
