File this under Disney Channel shows that deserve justice! Andi Mack has sadly been canceled after only three seasons, and fans are seriously heartbroken.
“Andi Mack was a labor of love for a room of impassioned, inventive writers, a talented and dedicated crew, and an extraordinary, miraculous cast who inspired us all,” series creator and executive producer Terri Minsky said in a statement. “We had the honor of breaking a lot of new ground for Disney Channel. We were its first serialized show, its first series centered around an Asian American family, and its first to feature an LGBTQ character who spoke the words ‘I’m gay.’ But the best part of making Andi Mack was our audience, who let us know we mattered to them. The series finale is for them.”
We’re not crying – you’re crying! While fans were hopeful for a fourth season, the uplifting series will unfortunately come to a halt after Season 3 airs. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as the cast had posted emotional tributes to the show on their last day of filming for Season 3. Still, the cast members were hopeful that perhaps Disney Channel would renew the show for one more batch of episodes.
In March, leading lady Peyton Elizabeth Lee told J-14 exclusively at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards that she was still holding out hope.
“We don’t know yet about Season 4. Right now, we’re about, I think, a little over halfway through airing the third season. I think as the third season wraps up, you’re gonna see a lot of questions answered. You’re gonna see a lot of characters — their story arcs coming together,” the Disney darling said.
However, she did confirm that Season 3 — which is now the final season — will luckily give fans a bit of closure.
“Definitely. I think at the end of Season 3, you’re gonna feel satisfied, but you also feel like there’s more to be told.”
While Disney Channel shows never run for more than four seasons, its always disappointing when a show on the children’s network doesn’t get renewed after making it to Season 3. Fans of Girl Meets World experienced the same shock and disappointment when the Boy Meets World spin-off series came to a surprising end after only the third season.
Not only had Andi Mack been praised for dealing with real-life topics like gun safety and anxiety, but it also made history by being the first Disney Channel show to star an openly gay character. Fans of the show had even rallied to create a petition to get the show renewed, so it’s safe to say the show will be very missed!
