Despite the cliffhanger end to its second season, ABC Family has cancelled Chasing Life.
The cabler has decided not to move forward with the coveted third season of the Italia Ricci drama, THR confirms.
It’s unlikely that the Disney-owned series will be shopped elsewhere, leaving fans without the necessary closure.

This is not smart to cancel an
Intelligent realistic well acted show and worst of all to leave cliffhangers.
Maybe too smart for ABC Disney
Channel and too mature. Try to see if Netflix or Amazon will pick it up or even HBO. They recognize quality and so do their viewers.

One of the very best shows on TV. Great scripts, actors, the whole works. I can’t imagine who thought this show should be cancelled given all the “usual crap” on TV. This show is special.
abc famle suks

Read the writers alleged wind up of
The series meant to satisfy those who are let down but it changes nothing and makes it worse. Some insensitive tough skinned new programming director is trying to make herself important.
U are so stupid ABC family u have done it to alot of show and u new u weren’t going renew y don’t u ended the right way
Nooooo. Loved Chasing Life. But of course it got cancelled. They only keep the crappy shows
Seriously!!! Another great show cancelled. All these stupid reality shows have an endless life span and all the quality shows get cancelled. This was about life of someone with cancer fighting the good fight! An inspiration to all and they go and cancel it! What the hell! Despicable! Please, other networks – someone pick it up.

Shows you the mentality of people

I’m Incredibly Sad you’ve Choosen NOT to Renew ‘Chasing Life’! I’m a 3x’s Cancer Patient and I found myself woven In & out of Different Story Lines! The Basically Young Cast was Wonderful & I will Miss them Terribly! One More Thing, Nothing Wrong with Changing your Mind!
Please reconsider! This is such a great show! Great actors, great story lines. I will surely miss this show.
What a mean spirited time in the story line to cancel this quality show! You have left many loyal invested watchers in the lurch. I will not be looking to get involved in any more series presented by the ABC family.
I can’t believe that they are canceling Chasing Life. I love the show. It was well written, had great acting and it touched a subject that hits home for many people in the US and across the world. The show should be shopped around and be aired on another network – at least for the third season. I hate the fact that at this point, we will never know what happens with April and her family and friends. Please reconsider bringing it back for one more season.
Why not end the series with a satisfying close. Hoping it will be picked up by another station! Everyonejust worries about ratings. Just maybe the followers of guality programs like this are the kind of viewers that pay attention to commercials.
Just one more reason to not watch TV, sick and tired of getting “hooked” on shows only to have network brass pull the plug and leave their loyal viewers hanging. Chasing Life was a wonderful show, characters were real, real issues, had a brother die from cancer and this show helped me begin to heal.
Really have to start questioning the powers that be when they cancel a show right at the height of a story line with no concern for the viewers at all.
Very intetesring details you have noted , regards for posting . “The surest way to get rid of a bore is to lend money to him.” by Paul Louis Courier.
Every time I start watching a show and get invested in it and for what ever reason upper brass cancels it. Chasing life is a wonderful show and if given the chance will make it. Please at least tie up loose and so we can have some closure. At this rate I too will stop watching TV.
Cindy Butcher says
I too am going to stop watching T.V. We are just going to use Netflix and Hulu…Disney is to sad to not see the the amount of cancer survivors, journalists and people who loved this family drama. It was the only well written and well acted drama out there.
Netflix please pick this show up!!!!!
i wlll ritr them
I love this show. Great characters, great plot, and finally a TV show that I looked forward to watching. I am beyond disappointed!
Terry Lydon says
The cancellation by ABC is a crime, I am very, very disappointed!
