'10 Things I Hate About You' Canceled

ABC Family won't renew the show for a second season and to make the matter worse, the producers have prepared an 'awesome cliffhanger' prior to the cancellation.


'10 Things I Hate About You' Canceled
See larger image

After only one season, "10 Things I Hate About You" will say goodbye to its fans. ABC Family has canceled the teen drama after its rating fails to go beyond the 1 million mark and it reached all time low on April 12 episode "Great Expectations".

The first to reveal the sad news was executive producer/writer Carter Covington who wrote on his Twitter, "Sad news ABCFamily canceled the show :-( ...Enjoy the last 5 eps - they're fantastic!" The Thursday, April 29 posting was followed up by a confirmation from the show's rep to Zap2It.

There are five episodes left in the series before the finale on May 31. Covington previously told EW that the finale will end with "AWESOME cliffhanger."

Created based on the feature film of the same title starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger, the TV series follows the Stratford sisters, Bianca and Kat, who have different personalities but have the same circle of friends at Padua High. Gil Junger, who directed the film version, directs most of the first season's episodes.

Honestly, they really should not have canceled this show, I loved the movie and the series it was a huge disappointment when I learned there would not be a second season. Seriously, they should bring it back for a second and possibly third season. And seriously how the hell did that crappy Secret Life of An American Teenager get more views then Ten Things I Hate About You, that just really makes me hate abc family's audience and wonder what is wrong with these people.

They do realise like loads of people wanted to watch this in England and they had actually brought it over here, they would get tons of views! Not fair!!! Love this show <3 x

OMG. This show was amazing- hilarious, romantic and just amazing. I don't understand why you had to cancel it! Please bring it back! There are so many people out there that want more of Kat and Patrick <3 and Bianca and Joey and Cameron!! I spent not more than 24 hours watching all 20 episodes and I almost had a nervous-breakdown because of the last episode. This is not fair! Please bring it back.

Also found on Netflix !! I'm in England too please do season two for Netflix watched it in two days !!
posted by ISA on Oct 15, 2013
Gutted! just discovered this on Netflix, like some of the other viewers, I was looking for the film, and thought why not take a peek and became addicted..it just got better as the series went on. I live in England and it was something I could watch with my two eldest girls that talked about relationships and school and got drawn into it myself. I can't believe there is no conclusion to the cliffhanger...there needs to be another series, if only to be put on Netflix!! Begging, all the way from England ;-)

Abcfamily please put this show back on air!! this show is so funny cute etc. And its about teens which is more fun to watch. You cant do this to the people that love this show and watched it everyday it came on air. I bet if you'll put this show on air agian you'll would have way more people watching this show now cause its that good. You'll shouldn't have stopped it at that point it was getting really good. So please please put this show back on air!!!!!!!!!

lots of people on here have been saying there from places that don't have the channel 'ABC family' and that is exactly same with me because i live in England, that is why i have not seen it and that's probably the same reason for the show not having enough viewers. Now its on Netflix though and everyone can watch it it seems like loads more are enjoying the program like i was i was sad when found out there was only one season! you should or should have put it in England as well or even all over the world because i bet there is loads of people that would like this program and plus i am dying to see more so please put it back on tv on a channel people all over the world have! please!

i found '10 things i hate about you' on Netflix and i thought it was so good and i was getting really into it until i realized there was only 1 season. I was proper devastated and would really like to see more! you should try doing season 2 and putting it on TV again see if it gets any more viewers now seem as season 1 is on Netflix! the good thing is more people seem to be watching it now seem as its on Netflix so you will definitely get more viewers i hope you carry on and maybe uncancel 10 things i hate about you! please please! and by the looks of things on this page it seems more people have seen and enjoyed. pleaseeee.

So I found 10 things I hate about you on Netflix a few days ago and I've been watching them happily until now. I hit the last episode without realising and was so excited to watch the next one until .. I REALISED THERE WASN'T ANOTHER ONE! FRUSTRATED ISNT THE WORD FOR HOW I FEEL RIGHT NOW. I was really enjoying watching it.

Im from England and only started watching these episodes, we dont have ABC family in England if you went world wide it would not of got cancled, pleaasee bring 10 things i hate about you back.
posted by Why??? on Jun 22, 2013
Why on earth would you finish it on a cliffhanger?!?! I'm in England and was devastated when I saw that there wasn't another season! We don't have ABC so no one here could have watched it apart from via the internet. If ABC family had aired it in international channels so much more people would have seen it and it wouldn't have had to be cancelled!

This show is amazing!!! I only just started watching it and now I have got to the end I need to know what happeness!!! You have to make more episodes!!! Please?
posted by teenviewer on May 19, 2013
This programme was one of my all time favourites to watch, i used to push myself through the week just to see it on a wednesday night. Their interpretation of the 1999 film is entertaining, realistic and teens all over the world can relate to the cliches of high school and teen romances. I was very upset when it got cancelled and I don't think it should have been so just for having less than a million viewers

I just finished watching the series. I knew there were only 20 episodes but I was still SAD AS HELL when I reached the end. This was actually one of the best teen shows around.
posted by danny on Mar 17, 2013
I just finished watching episode one in less than 24 hours and now I find out there's no episode 2! That's so unfair to the people who watch it and the fact that you left it like that and don't intend to finish it! nuh. No offence to America and all but I usually don't watch your tv shows as most the time they get on my freaking nerves but this one was pretty freaking good I mean its better than most the shit they produce over here and the one show I finally, FINALLY get into you cancel! THANK YOU AMERICA! uhh!!!!!!!!
posted by Just me on Mar 17, 2013
This is NOT FAIR! I think we should all take a stand for it. This serie really gave me confidence and instead of all the other crappy TV shows I actually think that this is pretty awesome and inspirational...but I guess there's no point in me saying all this now... (Gee I must sound obsessed) MAKE A SEASON 2!!..please?

I am from Germany. I discovered this show recently and couldn't stop watching. I fell in love with the characters immediately. It is too bad that they had to cancel it. The cliffhanger was like a punch in the face^^ But I'll get over it, there are other great shows like this ;)

We were so devestated after watching the last episode and finding out that there was no second season. We are so depressed we might actually die right now. we LOVE this programme so much so please make a season 2!!!!!!!!! especially after leaving it at such a cliffhanger!!!

posted by 10Things<3 on May 03, 2012
I absolutely love 10 Things I Hate about You and was devistated when the series got cancelled. I watched it religiously every week. The only thing that sucked was timing... I'm sure that's why the rating was soo low. There are a ton of awesome shows on Monday Nights and soo they should have moved the day to a different one. I'm sure the ratings would have definately increased with the schedule change because then more people who aren't addicted to other shows can watch this one. I REALLY WISH THEY WOULD MAKE ANOTHER SEASON AND JUST CONTINUE! Tons of people loved that show! It was amazing!

so i must say i don't get to watch much tv due to going to school full time and trying to get my own bussines going at 23 but this show was awesome. I was looking forward to watching it every night after work at the shop. Just finished the last episode and came to find out that there is no season 2. They really need to make another one. I would actually buy it instead of using netflix to watch it.

No wonder they have no viewers they always cancel the good shows they excite people with these shows then get rid of them I swear if ABC just advertises better and keep 10 things I hate about you on for s long time the viewers would go up. No offense ABC but no one wants yo watch ABC anymore and nobody listens to us say we want it back just like no one payed attention to the show because you guys don't know how to advertise well is the? Way you guys to listen to our advice to put the show back on

they always cancel the good shows and keep the crappy ones and it seems impossible for a new sitcom to survive into a second season, I love sitcoms and I really hate reality shows but reality shows are cheaper to produce, it all comes down to money not quality of show. I'm so shocked.

ugh! abcfamily is probably the stupidest channel on tv! why whould they cancel this! it's there fault, they kept of the air for so long and then started promos for it 2-3 weeks in advance, so most people probably didn't know it was on. Also, their making people pay to watch the episodes online, which is complete crap.
