"Bunheads is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired," the network said in a press release. "The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base.

"Recognizing all of this, we took extra time to try and find ways to bring the series back for another season, but in the end it simply wasn’t possible. We wish the cast and crew the best in their future endeavors."

The series was created by Gilmore Girls producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and starred Broadway veteran Sutton Foster.

The opening 18-episode season in February, with fans holding on to hope that it could earn a second season.

But with Twisted premiering strong this spring, Pretty Little Liars having been renewed for a fifth season and Ravenswood kicking off a run in October, there just wasn't room for Bunheads.
