Despite support from the stars of Awkward. and Pretty Little Liars, Delirium, the story based on a society where love is considered a disease starring Emma Roberts and Daren Kagasoff, is no longer tapped for television release.

Back in January, news of a potential TV series for Lauren Oliver‘s hit YA dystopian trilogy came to fruition, sending Invalids (or fans of the franchise) into a frenzy across the Internet. However, as delicately put by Entertainment Weekly, “This year’s pilot season has claimed its first online fandom victims” with FOX’s rejection of the show.

On the show’s fate, Emma tweets, “Sad about #Delirium. Thank you guys so much for your support!!!”

As for her would-be love interests, Daren and Gregg Sulkin say:

And, in an even longer message on Gregg’s WhoSay account, he writes, “Unfortunately, it’s official that Delirium did NOT get picked up by FOX. Firstly, and I am sure I speak on behalf of all the cast, I would like to thank everyone for their support over the past few weeks. Never have I experienced, or seen anything like that in my life. Your support for the show has simply been sensational. I am very humbled and grateful. The cast, producers, crew are as devastated as you are. We were all extremely passionate about this project, and [were] looking forward to working with each other on a regular basis. It wasn’t meant to be. However, as they say, as one door closes, another opens, and I hope you guys continue to stay on this journey with me. Of course, I would have loved the show to get on the air, but lets continue now to kick on, as a team, and I hope I can continue to make you guys proud in the future.”
