The “Hurtful” Way Bella Thorne Heard Famous in Love May Be Canceled

By  | 

The 2018-2019 television season is going to be missing a bunch of your favorites. Scandal, The Originals, New Girl — NONE of ’em are coming back next year. And, if the latest rumors are true, another one of your current faves may be on the chopping block.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform has “opted to cancel” Famous in Love, the drama starring Bella Thorne. The report alleges that “Freeform initially wanted to do a third season of the expensive series from producers Warner Horizon Scripted Television but asked streaming partner Hulu — which has SVOD rights to the drama — for a larger contribution.

The report continues, “Sources also say news of the cancellation was considered a relief for many members of the production. Star Thorne and showrunner King are said to have clashed on multiple occasions, with the actress exhibiting what sources described as “diva-like behavior” on set. Sources note Thorne actively wanted off of Famous in Love, with the actress and social media star having refused to participate in Freeform-organized live-tweets during its second season.”

To make things worse, the 20-year-old actress heard the rumors from Twitter! So, needless to say, she was hurt:

“If this is how I find out our show is canceled..I’m going to be so upset. Very hurtful freeform. I woulda liked a phone call maybe.”

The buzz about a feud between the redheaded star and I. Marlene King was quickly addressed by the showrunner:

“Despite what may be out there I am not in a feud w @bellathorne. We have, and have always had, a friendly and professional relationship.”

As for the show’s cancellation, it doesn’t sound like anything is set in stone:

“FACT: The ENTIRE @FamousInLoveTV cast and crew are crossing our fingers and toes as we light candles for a S3 pickup. #Raige On! ❤️”
