Guess these ballerinas just couldn’t hold their poses long enough.
ABC Family has officially cancelled their show Bunheads. Created by Amy Sherman Palladino — best known for her Gilmore Girls fame — and starring Broadway’s very own Sutton Foster, the show didn’t make it past its first season.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Sutton and some of the girls from the show’s ballet company took to Twitter to thank their fans:
Thank you all for the love!!! Onwards and upwards!

Sad to say goodbye but happy and thankful to have been a part of Bunheads. Love that cast, crew, & sweet sassy sardonic Sasha of course.

We’re so glad to see these ladies stay optimistic! Sutton’s right. Onwards and upwards!
