"Bunheads" is no more.

The ABC Family series has been canceled, the network told TheWrap on Monday.

"'Bunheads' is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired," an ABC Family spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement. "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 ballet dramedy, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Gilmore Girls") and Lamar Damon, lasted one season, wrapping that season in February after premiering in June 2012 and getting an order for additional episodes in August 2012.
