‘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.

They should cancel the Secret Life of the American Teenager! It is overrated and we don’t need to watch it on television. I see it everyday happening in my own school with other irresponsible girls. I don’t need to watch an actress making money and getting media attention for playing that role.
Switched at Birth is fun to watch because of learning Sign Language, but contains repeating drama between the two families. It is very ease to predict what is going to happen next.
Jane by Design offered a connection between all of the young viewers. The relationship was easy to be drawn to from high school to adult world. Jane was inspiring to watch her succeed through her difficult obstacles. The series showed what is was like to work in a designer’s shoes, which is a dream job for most of the viewers. It was like we were growing with all of the characters.

I agree with all of you. It’s EXTREMELY sad!!!!! Jane’s story is INSPIRING. Its sooooo beautiful to watch a show that doesnt involve 100% sex! This show make us believe that there are other interesting themes to talk about. I fall in love with this show, and like the others I want our show back. I wish there was someone that’s willing to make this happen. Im really sure it will give the same or even MORE ratings. i’m pretty sure everybody wants to know what will Jane do to keep her job. I really want to know the story she will make up so Gray dont notice she is in High School. And of course, I want to know what happens with Jane and Billy. I’m sure they love each other. Please, please give us another season the writer deserves it; it’s an AMAZING story.

im nothing with jane by design, i really hoped for jane and billy to get together and so i guess we’ll never know. In my opinion they shouldn’t have cancelled the show with something like a kiss.
