‘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 return jane by design for at least another season! at least give it a proper ending… one that it deserves, and not an unexpected one leaving the fans and the story hanging… cancelling jane by design… the BIGGEST mistake ABC family has ever made just saying. :(

I’m both sad, mad & disillusioned with the network’s decision. They either don’t know who their consumers are and what they like or they simply don’t care. It makes no logical sense for a network to cancel a series that has a 97% positive/popularity rating. Good ratings are what networks are suppose to be aiming for… Striving for. So for them to cancel a highly rated series makes no business sense at all–other than the obvious (which is obvious); they’re simply NOT LISTENING to their audience/consumers–and are following their own agenda. This show is one that has a great substance platform that appealed to a diversified audience–which should delight the network. Jane by design is 10 times better than the majority of the shows that they’re resigning for another season… I for one would like an explanation from the network as to the reason for the cancellation (not just we’re sorry to inform you blow off). Those of us that FAITHFULLY watched the series have a right to know. We also have a right to sincerely request that they reconsider the decision and sign the series for another season– or good ratings simply don’t matter. If we matter as faithful viewers– then you the network will consider how we feel and respond with good business sense and bring Jane by Design back–CLEARLY THE RATINGS HAVE SPOKEN!!!!!!!!

Today I just finish watching Jane by Design I started to c it when it begun but I stop seeing it bc the wasn’t more episodes after the first ten. But I check if there were going to be more on abc family so I check n so I finish watching this series. This series is so awesome n so romantic n the thing is it has what all girls like fashion n cute boys. But it was the best I love it n the thing is I will love for the production of abc family to bring it back we all want Jane by Design back. So please reconsider it n bring it back to life. Please n all cast r the best.
