“10 Things I Hate About You,” one of ABC Family’s Monday night lineup, has fallen.
The comedy that’s a modern take on Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” set in high school has been canceled, according to a tweet by executive producer/writer Carter Covington.
“Sad news ABCFamily canceled the show :-( …Enjoy the last 5 eps – they’re fantastic!” he posted to his Twitter account Thursday (April 29).
A rep for the show confirmed with Zap2it.
The series stars Lindsey Shaw as feminist Kat Stratford, sister of popular Bianca (Meaghan Martin), who’s more concerned with social standing. Ethan Peck plays Patrick Verona, the bad boy who’s interested in Kat, while Nicholas Braun plays loyal Cameron James, the nice guy who’s pining after Bianca.
Larry Miller plays the Stratford father, reprising his role from the big screen film of the same name that starred Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the late Heath Ledger.
