News of a possible cancellation for Famous In Love surprised fans of the series and even some people involved with the project—like its lead star.
Apparently, Bella Thorne, who plays Paige Towns in the series, found out Freeform had axe the show just like the rest of us, and, understandably, the actress wasn’t very happy about it.
“If this is how I find out our show is cancelled, I’m going to be so upset,” the 20-year-old tweeted with a link to an article. “Very hurtful, Freefom. I would’ve liked a phone call maybe.”
An insider told The Hollywood Reporter that Freefom had the intention to renew the show for a third season but wanted Hulu—which has streaming rights for the show—to give a larger contribution despite the massive dip in the ratings.
Unlike Bella, news of the possible cancellation was a relief for many members of the show’s production. Just two days ago, rumors broke that Thorne didn’t get along with showrunner and Pretty Little Liars creator, I. Marlene King. Sources said Thorne exhibited certain “diva-like behavior” and had expressed her desire to leave the show.
Well, seems like Freeform has made decision for her! Sorry you had to find out about it this way, Bella.
