Bella Thorne Calls Out Freeform Over Famous in Love Cancellation

The actress wanted a courtesy call from the network

Sorry Famous in Lovefans, we may never find out who was on that stretcher in the Season 2 finale.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform has decided to cancel Famous in Loveafter just two seasons due to difficulties making a streaming deal with Hulu as well as alleged clashes between series star Bella Thorne and showrunner I. Marlene King. Sources said Thorne exhibited certain "diva-like behavior" and had expressed a desire to leave the show.

On Monday, Thorne found out about the show's cancellation at the same time as everyone else -- via Twitter. Thorne immediately addressed the news when she saw initial report, retweeting the announcement and writing, "If this is how I find out our show is canceled..I'm going to be so upset. Very hurtful freeform. I woulda liked a phone call maybe."

That same day, King refuted both the rumors of cancellation and feuding on Twitter, saying, "Despite what may be out there I am not in a feud w @bellathorne. We have, and have always had, a friendly and professional relationship... FACT: The ENTIRE @FamousInLoveTV cast and crew are crossing our fingers and toes as we light candles for a S3 pickup. #Raige On!"

Unfortunately, the rumors turned out to be true, and Freeform released a statement on Friday confirming the news. "We are proud to have had the opportunity to air Famous in Love. After many discussions we have made the difficult decision not to renew the show for a third season," the statement said. "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."

King addressed the news on Twitter again, mourning the loss of the show. "I am deeply grateful for the #FamousInLove cast, crew and our passionate fans," she wrote. "I could not be more saddened by today's news. 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."

This marks the second show Freeform has canceled in a seemingly sudden fashion -- Shadowhunters being the first -- with both casts expressing regret at not being informed of their shows' fate ahead of the cancellation news. However, unlike Shadowhunters, it doesn't appear Freeform will be giving any additional wrap-up episodes to Famous in Love, making its recent Season 2 finale its series finale.
