  • I REALLY hope this gets renewed. Bunheads is one of my favorite scripted shows on TV right now, and ABC Family’s best, and one of the best family shows around period.

    • The last episode (the emergency shelter episode) was probably my favorite hour of TV so far this year (and for me to say that is something). Absolutely, absolutely renew.

    • Smartest and funniest dialogue per minute of anything else on T.V. please, please, please renew.

    • The dialogue is refreshing, funny and quick. The characters are just becoming familiar and I am just finding my favorites (besides Michelle and her mother in law). I really hope it is picked up for another season.

  • I want ABC to renew it for a second season as badly as Truly wants to be important and Ginny wants Frankie to kiss her.

    Comment by Valkyrje – February 20, 2013 01:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well said. I couldn’t agree more, though I might change it to as badly as Truly wants to be a maid of honor :-)

  • As an avid Gilmore Girl fan, I really really wanted to give Bunheads a chance, and it certainly had its moments. I love the quartet, and wish we could have seen more of Kelly Bishop, but in the end I think that show was unfocused in regards of narrative. Characters appeared and disappeared (remember the loner guy Michelle left the car on his path? Me neither), time was wasted with meaningless dance-routines (Sasha’s dream-esque), and again, no plot whatsoever.

    • That’s too bad, the show really found it’s very leggy legs this season, and the ‘Not A Mint’ ep was amazingly good.

      Comment by Plum – February 20, 2013 05:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • My favorite ep of the year of all shows on TV so far.

        Comment by Tarc – February 21, 2013 12:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s not really true… The characters that are brought on are/were the audience’s way of seeing Michelle grow. From Vegas girl to Mentor and Teacher. The show is clearly focused with a clear plot. Maybe you need to re-watch the first season. PLEASE RENEW.

    • did you watch the more recent episodes of the show. I felt the same way you did, until the second half of the season now i love the show.

      Comment by Adam – February 20, 2013 10:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • As for your question, I watched all the episodes that currently aired. And I agree with you, the second half of the season was much better than the former, but it still lacked to become a great show.

  • I really think that there’s something quite charming about this show, and when you combine that with Sherman-Palladino’s gift of witty dialogue there’s a strong case for the show coming back AND BEING WATCHED.

  • Extremely badly! I do not think there are a lot of shows like this or Gilmore Girls anymore. Gilmore Girls did not have high ratings either, but it kept coming back because it developed a loyal fan base. I also think it is to the benefit to the ABC Family network to renew this show because besides switched at birth, the only other shows on there are laugh button comedies and shows about the sex lives of teenagers (secret life, the lying game, and pretty little liars). And I am not saying that is the entire set-up of those three shows, but a cast of teenagers with secrets, lies, and with money is getting old in my opinion. I honestly think this show should stay on air. I really want it to survive, especially as an Amy Sherman-Palladino (I am a huge fan of her writing). I really believe in this show, so here’s hoping, crossing my fingers, arms, legs, and toes for it to come back and stay strong until Amy says “it is time to go.” She did not get that chance with Gilmore Girls, so I want to see what she can do when the ball is in her court and she gets to create what she envisions as the best story lines for the characters and the best way to end the show.

    • Couldn’t agree more! I’m so tired of shows w/ teenagers lying, hooking up, etc. “Bunheads” is so refreshing!!!

  • I want this show to get renewed and I want Kelly Bishop to make more room in her schedule to be on it!

  • I really love this show and want it to be renewed. I was/am a huge Gilmore Girls fan and I love Amy Sherman-Palladino’s writing. I think Sutton Foster is amazingly talented and Kelly Biship is, of course, amazing as well. I’m really hoping it comes back.

  • Come on ABC Family, you gotta renew this show!

    Comment by Beth – February 20, 2013 02:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • After a pitch perfect pilot and a good but clunky start, the show came back from it’s hiatus and found it’s rhythm with a vengeance: superb writing and timing, confident acting by a diverse cast, better production design and camera work and beautiful surprises.PLEASE renew it!! one of TV’s best little gems!!!

  • I hope this show gets renewed too. I really have grown to enjoy all the actors and look forward to it each week. But I do have to admit that it is not exactly “must see” TV for me and I fast forward through some of each episode.

    Comment by MIka – February 20, 2013 03:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Are you kidding me this is the ONLY show I watch on TV! Everything else is overly dramatic or “reality tv”! I don’t have a show I watch every week except one and its even being recorded for the Monday nights I have to work! I’ll admit I’m 23 years old and I should have a more “mature” show that I should be watching, but with the day in and day out of my real life that last thing I want to watch is overly dramatic tv or someone’s “real life”! Please bring this show back! Television needs something like this show on TV and I hope it stays on for years to come!

  • I hope the show gets renewed too. While I wish Kelly Bishop was on more it is stil a good show with witty dialogue.

  • Renew! Renew! (And not in a “Logan’s Run” way, either.)

    “Bunheads” is one of the better shows on cable right now. And any episode with Sutton Foster singing is good.

    Comment by Matt – February 20, 2013 03:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Bunheads is ABC Family lowesr rated series. So I think it will get canceled :(

  • This show NEEDS to be renewed! I will be SOO upset if they cancel it. Why junk shows continue to be renewed and the good ones get cancelled is beyond me.

  • This is such a great show. Best part of my week is Monday’s when it’s on. Amy Sherman-Palladino is such an amazing writer. The story line is quick and witty. And Sutton Foster does an amazing job as Michelle. Please please please keep this on tv. One of the best shows out there right now!

  • Ack! I guess I haven’t been paying attention. I didn’t realize that this was in danger of cancellation. I desperately hope it gets renewed as well. I was/am a huge Gilmore Girls fan, and thinking Bunheads wouldn’t be as good I didn’t start watching until recently. I cannot believe how idiotic of me that was. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show. I caught a bit of an episode a few weeks ago, and had to rent, buy, watch every episode online.

  • Heard about the show via a facebook ad before it launched, watched every episode. I’m a fan of dance and of Amy and am really enjoying it!

  • Please, please, please renew this show! One of the things I loved about Gilmore girls was b/c my mom and I fell in love w/ it together, and it was something shared. Now we share this show. Brings back great memories, and I love the new memories we’re creating! Please, please renew this show!!! Plus, I love learning new things w/ the pop culture references :-)

  • Please for all that is good and decent in this world renew this show. A long time fan of Gilmore Girls and Amy I feel like we have to keep witty and clever shows on the air. Sutton foster is amazing in this and brings a great fresh vibe to the character. The quartet has blossomed in front of our eyes and I crave my weekly addiction on Monday nights. Please bring back the bun!!

  • I absolutely LOVE this show! Almost as much as I loved Gilmore Girls. The trademark wit and snark makes my Monday’s less dull. I love the characters, the dialogue, and the dance routines.

  • Not only is Bunheads the best hour of my week, every week, it’s absolutely refreshing to watch. The plot is great, the characters are amazing and it’s the only show on ABC Family I find worth watching anymore. As an avid Gilmore Girls fan, I find the love I have/had for Sherman-Palladino’s writing just keeps growing. The wit and humor carries over so much from Gilmore Girls and I love the previous cast appearances on this new show. Bunheads is the biggest “must-watch” on TV in a long time. I find myself wanting more at the end of each episode. Sutton Foster is amazing and plays Michelle’s character in a way that brings you to be able to relate to her so easily. I really, really hope this show gets renewed for a second season, if not three or four! I plan on buying the first season on DVD and re-watching all of the episodes, over and over. I love Bunheads so much!!

  • There are so many terrible shows on TV that keep being renewed. This show is fantastic. Wonderfully written and acted. PLEASE renew it. We love it here in Australia it appeals to our quirky sense of humour.

  • I’ll be so upset if this amazing show doesn’t make it. Fabulous writing, hilarious cast– what’s not to love!? I also adore the musical numbers and wish they had more of them. Everything Sutton does is magical and how lovely was the dancers’ Picture in a Frame performance? More, more, more!!!!!!

    Comment by Kelly – February 20, 2013 08:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is one of a handful of shows I look forward to (along with “Switched At Birth”, “The Lying Game” and “Jane by Design”) so it would really be great if it were renewed for another season.

  • ABSOLUTELY, RENEW “BUNHEADS”, PLEEEEEEEZZZZZZ!
    I’ve been a huge Sutton fan since the first of 5 times I saw her in “Millie” and have loved everything she’s done on B’way since. Actually, I’ve seen her in every show at least twice. Seeing her on “Bunheads” every week, sharing her multitude of talents (except her artwork) with everyone who tunes in, is such a treat. Also, it’s so refreshing to know there is a show that let’s everyone see the dedication with which the ballet students train and how their lives revolve around their desire to dance. I’d love to see Sutton perform more, and I’d love to see the students dance more (in class and in performances). I have some other ideas to enrich the story, if anyone affiliated with the show wishes to contact me.

  • They better renew it!!! It’s the best show since Gilmore Girls. I absolutely love the style. And as a dancer, I am so happy dance is being recognized in a normal, not So You Think You Can Dance way.

  • Please renew this show! My daughter and I love watching it together. There aren’t many shows that you can do that with anymore!
