Good things come and good things go. That’s one thing that we have all learned in life and well, in watching television.
The series was created by Rachel Shukert, who also served as showrunner on the series. In a statement she said, “I have wanted to be a part of the world Ann M. Martin created since I was 7 years old, and for two amazing seasons I actually got to be. It was a dream come true. Although I am heartbroken not to be returning to Stoneybrook for 20 more seasons, I am so proud of the incredible show our amazing cast and crew created and the way it brought joy and comfort to so many when they needed it most. Thank you to Walden Media and to Netflix for giving us the opportunity to introduce Kristy, Claudia, Stacey, Mary Anne, Dawn, Jessi and Mallory to a new generation of fans who I know will love them as much as we do for years to come.”
The internet reacted to the cancellation with mixed emotions, but a lot of people were sad that the show was cancelled, as The Baby-Sitters Club means a lot to so many.
In response to the online sentiment Shukert tweeted –
The Baby-Sitters Club starred Sophie Grace as Kristy, Momona Tamada as Claudia, Shay Rudolph as Stacey, Malia Baker as Mary Anne, Xochitl Gomez (replaced by Kyndra Sanchez in the second season) as Dawn, Anais Lee as Jessi and Vivian Watson as Mallory, along with Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein.
We are sad to see it go. How about you?
