Time has run out for ABC Family's Bunheads.
The cable network has decided against a second season for the series, which stars Tony Award winner Sutton Foster as Michelle Simms, a classically trained ballerina who, after time spent as a showgirl in Las Vegas, ends up teaching at her mother-in-law's California dance school.
Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is executive producer of Bunheads, which broadcast its last new episode early this year.
There had been much speculation about whether the series would return.
ABC Family today issued this statement:
"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."
