"We are proud to have had the opportunity to air 'Famous In Love'," the network said in a statement. "After many discussions we have made the difficult decision not to renew the show for a third season. We want to thank our colleagues at Warner Horizon and our incredible producers, writers, cast and crew, especially Marlene King, for their creativity, hard work and dedication."
Following the cancellation, showrunner King took to Twitter to share her thought on it. "I am deeply grateful for the #FamousInLove cast, crew and our passionate fans. I could not be more saddened by today's news," she wrote. "I love these characters and the wild ride they were taking us on. Thank you @warnerbrosTV for fighting the good fight with me. We gave it our all. Keep #Raige in your hearts and they will live on."
Reports of the cancellation had emerged online last week, though fans hoped that Freeform would never confirm the cancellation. Showrunner King also took to Twitter to rally fans. "We are still praying for our season 3. Feel free to join us," she said. The "Pretty Little Liars" creator also revealed that she actually had "such great story planned for season 3."
Thank you. We have such great story planned for season 3. Fingers crossed. 💚🧡💙❤️ https://t.co/WNU4LeZ1MG— I. Marlene King (@imarleneking) June 29, 2018
