ABC Family broke a few hearts today with the announcement that the current eight-episode third season of their drama Make It or Break It will be its last.
This isn’t the first time the show faced cancellation, though, as it beat the odds last September by getting the eight-episode pick-up for this season: just in time to “ignite Olympic fever” as stated by the network’s president, Michael Riley.
‘Make It or Break It’ follows several elite female teen gymnasts dreaming of competing at the upcoming summer 2012 Olympics in London. This season’s episode are chronicling the final race to the Olympics. The May 14 finale will reportedly reveal the identity of which of the three girls will make the U.S. team for the games.
This news comes on the heels of ABC Family announcing the second season pick-up of the teen guilty pleasure series ‘The Lying Game’. The network also has new shows coming up this summer, including the new drama ‘Bunheads’ and the comedy ‘Baby Daddy’.
The next new episode of ‘Make It or Break It’ will air on ABC Family on Monday, April 30 at 9/8c. [Source: Deadline]
