The Lying Game: Canceled by ABC Family

at . Comments

ABC Family has finally revealed the truth about The Lying Game: it will not return for a third season.

While the network itself has not yet made this announcement, star Alexandra Chando took to Instagram today and confirmed:

"To our awesome #lyinggame fans, thank you for these two amazing seasons. Unfortunately, ABC Family has decided not to bring us back for a third season. We so wanted to do 10 more for you guys! Thanks for your support and keep up with the cast to see what’s next for us!"

The fate of The Lying Game had been assumed for awhile, but ABC Family - which has also not revealed the future of Bunheads - but Chando's declaration is the first official word regarding the series.

abc family should at least end the show properly to wrap it up, when the lying game is over. this was one show I always watched. PLL is ridiculous, LG is more interesting. I don't watch the other shows.


@Bob, SL in its first three seasons was a hit for the network and was a flagship/signature show for the network and one of its highest rated shows plus it went to 100 episodes for syndication.Lying Game wouldve never made to syndication and wasnt a hit, but a modestly rayed show and it wasnt a flagship show.Plus SL in its first three seasons had two to three times the ratings of Lying Game.Lying Game was given season to grow its audience but it didnt.Also, shows arent renewed quality or viewers idea of quality(like you seem to to think from saying how good LG was and how bad SL and how SL shouldve been cancelled a long time ago) but on ratings and if theyre making enough money for the network to justify remwal or not.


cancel this which wasn't that bad but they let secret life go on for years which wore out and got old after a couple seasons


I really wish they renewed the Lying Game!!!!!!! I wanted to see what happens after everyone found out about the truth


It should have got another 10 eps as it's too soon to know if Twisted or The Fosters will be renewed.


I saw this coming for awhile I even thought they already canceled it. I wish we had got another season just to wrap up the show but oh well

hate this! i loved covering it and loved the fans


I guess I am not surprised, but I wish it had been PLL instead. PLL is just so ridiculous. Not that the Lying Game was grounded in sanity. It's just a bit less preposterous. I thought that the finale brought the suspense to a new level and was intrigued to see where they were going to take it.
