The time has come to say goodbye to those nefarious American teens who are always having sex, getting preggers, and being all around devious…
'Cause ABC Family has cancelled the once popular Secret Life of an American Teenager!
It seems meager ratings have forced the network's hand, and the show's current fifth season will be its last.
Ah well, at least most of the cast is already moving on to bigger and better things, and Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley is obviously meant to mingle with the likes of George Clooney… and E.L. James?!
Rumor has it Shailene is E.L.'s pick to star as doe-eyed submissive Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie! We can totally see it, Shailene has plenty of experience acting like she's sexin' it up on screen, only this time, she won't have to deal with the that cumbersome baby consequence!
