Disney Cancels Comedy Series THR

Disney Channel has canceled a comedy series. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the cable channel pulled the plug on the live-action comedy series "Shake it Up" after three seasons.

The series stars Bella Thorne and Zendaya as best friends who end up getting jobs as backup dancers on a TV show.

The program will end after 78 episodes, although a final airdate hasn't been set. The decision to cancel the show comes after Disney said another long-running comedy, "Good Luck Charlie," would end after its fourth season, as we reported recently.

Disney is building a new comedy slate, which includes the "Boy Meets World" spinoff "Girl Meets World" and a series about twins called "I Didn't Do It," the piece notes.
