Maybe it’s because her name and alleged “diva-like behavior” are tied to the show ending — with The Hollywood Reporter claiming she and showrunner I. Marlene King clashed multiple times.
According to THR, Freeform initially wanted to do a third season of the show, which was said to be expensive, but wanted streaming partner Hulu to give a larger contribution. Hulu passed, since Season 2 only averaged 254,000 total viewers which was down from Season 1.
In a twist on the usual cancellation reception, THR said the show being axed was actually a “relief” for many members of production, due to the star’s alleged behavior and her clashes with the former “Pretty Little Liars” showrunner.
THR’s sources said Thorne “actively wanted off of ‘Famous in Love,’ with the actress and social media star having refused to participate in Freeform-organized live-tweets during its second season.”
But Thorne sounded upset to hear of the show’s cancellation via a SpoilerTV tweet posted Tuesday afternoon:

Whoops. Whatever happened behind the scenes, it’s always better to contact the star first before the media.
“Famous in Love” aired 20 episodes across two seasons, with the May 30 Season 2 finale now serving as the series finale.
Meanwhile, many Freeform fans are still busy trying to get someone to save “Shadowhunters,” which was canceled a few weeks ago.
