On July 22, 2013, ABC Family released a statement announcing that "Bunheads" had been canceled. The statement said, "'Bunheads' is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired. The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base. Recognizing all of this, we took extra time to try and find ways to bring the series back for another season, but in the end it simply wasn't possible. We wish the cast and crew the best in their future endeavors."
Many of the first season episodes mention Fanny's students auditioning for the Joffrey Ballet School Summer Intensive. This is a real program for ballet training, with branches in New York City, Florence (Italy), and Milledgeville (Georgia) (as well as Joffrey Jazz and Modern/Contemporary dance intensives in LA, NY, Miami, and Milledgeville).
