Disney Channel has cancelled Best Friends Whenever after two seasons.
Series star Landry Bender confirms that the multi-camera sitcom will not return for Season 3:
I started writing this on December 16th but I wasn’t yet ready to share. I enjoy writing amateur scripts more than lengthy Tumblr posts but hopefully this’ll do. As some of you may have heard, Best Friends Whenever won’t be going any further. Even though we’ve known this for a couple of months now, it doesn’t make it hurt any less.
First off, HUGE thank you to Jed and Scott (our leaders/work dads) for a multitude of things. I’ve grown so much as an actor and even more as a person through them hiring my barely 14 year old self and trusting me to be a part of an ensemble with some of the most comically talented teenagers I know. They made it a routine to have “writer’s lunch” every Friday where we got to eat upstairs in the production office and get giddy about future storylines, something I’ve been told “kids” shows don’t do. And there were of course SO many other people behind and in front of that show who I adore, who without I wouldn’t be the person I am today, and who I’m sure will attend my wedding someday.
This show was my high school, the best one a girl could dream of. And even though we’ll all move on to different projects, being able to say I grew up with people is something I’ll forever cherish.
I of course can’t give enough thank you’s to you guys for the constant love – truly. We grew a following from nothing which is very rare for a show with quirky teenagers and special effects to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Whenever, whatever, wherever, I’m right there with you. xo, Landry

I think for everyone, it's hard to say BFW has been canceled. I'd like to thank Jed and Scott for giving me such an incredible experience on the show. I'd also like to thank my co stars, Landry, Gus, Ricky, Lauren, Bryana, and my bro Matt for making these two seasons as enjoyable as possible, and last but definitely not least the fans. You guys are the reason we came to be such an amazing show. Thank you everyone! #BestFriendsWhenever
I am sorry to share that #BestFriendsWhenever has not been renewed for season 3. As I am saddened by this news, it does not stop me from remembering the great friendships and memories I made as part of this wonderful project. First off I would like to thank Jed and Scott for giving my brother and I a chance to play Bret and Chet and for being amazing mentors. Next, I would like to thank our amazing crew and writing staff who week by week put in so much work to make this show absolutely amazing. I would also like to say thanks to my wonderful co stars who made this job so enjoyable week after week. Last but not least, our amazing fans. Without you guys there would have been no Best Friends Whenever. Thanks to you all! #twingers #disneychannel #disney #bfw
