Is Bunheads Doomed? Why the Beloved Ballet Series Could Still Come Back

ABC Family has torn down the Bunheads sets. The network’s new dramas The Fosters and Twisted are currently outperforming the numbers that Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ballet series was pulling in. There’s been no word yet on a second season, and it was not submitted for Emmy consideration, even though six other eligible ABC Family series were: Baby DaddyThe Lying GameMelissa & Joey, Pretty Little LiarsThe Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Switched at Birth. Altogether, these signs do not bode well at all for Bunheads being renewed. But — and it’s a big but — the show hasn’t been canceled either, a hopeful sign considering the last original episode aired in February: If the network wanted to be done with it, they’d be done with it. So let’s indulge in some optimism, shall we, and focus on the reasons why it might come back.
