‘Jane By Design’ Canceled By ABC Family

‘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. :-)”

Are you bummed about the end of Jane By Design? Vote below, then drop me a comment with your strongest reactions, fondest memories, and most effective coping mechanisms.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell ABC family to give us back the show. I don’t care if they didn’t like it. no one cares about their opinion.our opinions are the only ones that matter in the world of TV shows. And we loved it. So they have to give it back. All the same actors. no casting changes.

They Can’t Cancel Jane By Design! Thats one of my favorite shows on Abc Family. Mondays was Switched at Birth, Tuesday are Jane By Design Then Pretty Little Liars. Now that they have decided to take out Jane By Design, I feel like there’s nothing to look forward to anymore. Why couldn’t they have canceled Bun heads or the lying game or something else.

I love Jane by design

I started watching this show late. I mean late, like on Netflix. I was literally FREAKING out during the last episode. I realized that I haven’t seen on tv recently, so when I looked up ‘season two Jane by design’……. MY HEART JUST SANK! I loved EVERYTHING, from the outfits of the characters, to the characters themselves. It deserves to be the ABC way faster than some of these crappy shows!

This was a good show and it’s a shame that they cancelled it especially when they continue renew seasons and episodes for shows that are horrible like Secret Life of an American Teenager! (by way of imdb standards jane by design got a 7.2 out of 10 rating and secret life a 4.8 out of 10 and it can be hard to please people on imdb)

I loved this show so much! I wish I had watched it on TV more, instead of my ipad. But it probably wouldn’t have made a difference. It was just one of the best shows I’ve ever watched. And it seemed like an exact replica of my life. (Without the secret job and double life :) ) I’m really gonna miss it. I’ll just imagine that Zoe did end up being Billy’s Cinderella ( because I love them together), and hope that Jane ends up happy. I love you Jane by Design! :,(

Some shows like Bunheads, Melissa & Joey, and Baby Daddy were unnecessary. No one even likes them. If they’re worried about fans then dont be, they’re all there. They should definetely reconsider their choice because Jane and Billy, we’re waiting for you.
