‘Jane By Design’ won’t return for a second season, ABC Family confirms.

It’s with much sadness that I report ABC Family has decided not to renew Jane By Design. The decision was announced Aug. 17, on the heels of several other series — BunheadsMelissa & JoeyBaby Daddy and Switched at Birth — receiving new season and back-order pickups.

The show’s first season ended with Jane (Erica Dasher) finally getting caught by boss Gray (Andie MacDowell) for being in high school, after spending the series posing as her adult assistant. She had also finally acknowledged her feelings for best-friend Billy (Nick Roux).

Several of the shows stars thanked fans for their support over Twitter:

“Thank you so much for everything!!!” Jane herself, Erica, tweeted. “It was incredible and you all are the best part of that experience. Love love love”

Rowly Dennis, who played hot-shot British design Jeremy, tweeted: “Sorry guys, no more Jane By Design.”

Bryan Dechart, who played Gray’s nephew Eli, tweeted: “You guys are incredible and we truly appreciate your support. Eli’s gone, I’m not. :-)”

Do I need an end to the series in the style of Jane
for me it was the end did not clear to me
I was hoping that Billy and Jane are not just friends and that their friendship will grow into something more. Recognition of feelings for each other. I DEMAND SEASON 2!!!!!!!!!

I really wish that it can be continued because it’s not fair for the show to end in a suspense just as it did. Pleeeeeeease let us have a season 2 to watch…i really love the show and all the characters are incredible.

The actors don’t seem to be very busy at the moment so this would be the perfect time to film the second season, just to tie up the loose ends. So we can all find out who Billy will pick. What happens with Jane’s job. Jeremy’s line. Me being a teenager myself, I feel as though this could have been huge! This is the kind of thing teenagers watch. It already was quite popular and seeing it on tumblr a lot promoted it so many other people watched this and live it as much as me and hope for even one more season so we can find out what happens. I really hope this is brought back to tv soon with a new season.:’)

Jane by Design is an amazing show. Why was it cancelled? I am honestly done with ABC Family. There has been so many good shows by them that they just cancelled and frankly, I’ve had enough. I only watched JBD this year but love it so much. I really hope you bring the show back soon as it is so inspirational and showed teens that anything was possible if you put your mind to it and tried hard enough to achieve it. Also, I really wanna know what happens to Jane and Billy. If they ever get together or if he stays with Zoe and Jane with Eli or possibly a new/old love interest? I don’t know Jeremy or Nick? I need to know and hope this tv series gets renewed sometime very soon. Within the next year or two.

Jane by Design is a lovely show. Why why was it cancelled ?? ABC Family? I think not. Here was a “family ” show even the teens could watch; even a bit supportive of initiative; family support; anything is possible!!
