Get your tissues ready, Nickelodeon fans. Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and School of Rock are officially canceled, and we are super sad to see the fan favorite sitcoms come to an end. Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn will come to a close after four seasons, while School of Rock will end at Season 3.
"Nickelodeon is not moving forward with production on Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and School of Rock," the network told Deadline. "We are extremely proud of each series and thankful to the casts and crews for their work. The remaining episodes for both shows will continue to air on Nickelodeon through 2018."
There was a bit of a casting shake-up that went down over at the Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn recently. It was announced that Mace Coronel, who plays Dicky one of the Harper quadruplets, has left the series – which is why the fate of the show was up in the air.
Deadline received a comment from a Nickelodeon spokesperson who said the network and Mace "mutually parted ways" during the summer. Apparently, Mace left the show in August and won't appear in the last few episodes of the season since the cast was still working on the remaining episodes of the season when he left. Mace took to his Instagram to share a pic of himself on the set of a new movie where he revealed that he will no longer be playing Dicky on the show.
"Hey guys so here's the news I can finally share! So in this picture I'm on a set for a new film I'm working on (no this isn't my real room). But basically I wanted to announce that as of 3 weeks ago I'm off Nicky Ricky Dicky Dawn! I made a mutual agreement with Nickelodeon and the show is going on without me, and I'm so excited to be back acting in some serious and more diverse projects. So say goodbye to "Dicky". Love all 748k of you ❤️ and I can't wait to move on and share the next stage of my life and work with all of you," Mace wrote.
The show (which stars Mace, Lizzy Greene, Aidan Gallagher, Casey Simpson, Brian Stepanek, Allison Munn, Gabrielle Elyse, and Kyla-Drew Simmons) premiered on September 13, 2014, with the cast wrapping up filming for Season 4 in September. Although they weren't sure if the show was getting a fifth season or not while finishing up their final day on set, many said goodbye on social media – assuming it was the end. Kyla-Drew took to Instagram to share a video, and Lizzy's tears had our hearts breaking.
She captioned it, "That's a Wrap Season 4 of NRDD!! I'm so grateful that I was blessed with the opportunity to bring the character Mae to life!! It has been an amazing ride and a life long learning experience. Thank you Mr.Dave and Mr.Paul for creating my character. Thank you to the entire cast and crew I absolutely loved working with you. Thank you Ms.Sherrill for keeping me fed☺️. Thank you to the wardrobe department for making sure my outfits were always on point!! Thank you to my mommy for keeping me on point😂😂Thank you Michael Feldman and all of the writers,producers (especially Ms.Amy Brown and Mr.Jeff), Mr.Johnny, Grip, Props, Transpo, Hair/Makeup Mr.Blake, Ms.Rebecca, and everyone!!"
Kyla continued with the question we were all asking ourselves at the time.
The actress added, "But.... I gotta ask... @yvette_urbina @nickelodeon Are we getting a Season 5.....Are we not getting a Season 5....😂😂🤣🤣😂😂😍😘😜."
Although Kyla sounded hopeful in her post, other cast members' messages sounded more like a goodbye.
"Shooting the last episode of Season 4! It's our best season yet so I know you'll all love it when it premieres ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #NRDD Comment 'BestShowEverNRDD⭐️,'" Aidan wrote alongside a cast photo he shared.
Allison, who plays the mom Anne Harper on the show, also took to Instagram to share a few video clips from the last day of shooting. "Our final "quaddle" of Season 4. I 💘 these people. #NRDD," the first one read.
"And that's a wrap. 🎬 #NRDD #bestcrew," Allison captioned her second Instagram video from the last day on set.
It is safe to say we're all sad to see these series end.
