After two seasons of time traveling and adventures that were simply out of this world, Disney Channel has decided to not renew Best Friends Whenever. The cast of the show took to their social media accounts to break the news to fans after months of speculation as to if and when the series would return for more episodes.
"I started writing this on December 16th but I wasn’t yet ready to share. As some of you may have heard, Best Friends Whenever won't be going any further. Even though we’ve known this for a couple of months now, it doesn’t make it hurt any less," she wrote. "First off, HUGE thank you to Jed and Scott (our leaders/work dads) for a multitude of things. I've grown so much as an actor and even more as a person through them hiring my barely 14 year old self and trusting me to be a part of an ensemble with some of the most comically talented teenagers I know. They made it a routine to have 'writer’s lunch' every Friday where we got to eat upstairs in the production office and get giddy about future storylines, something I’ve been told 'kids' shows don’t do. And there were of course SO many other people behind and in front of that show who I adore, who without I wouldn’t be the person I am today, and who I’m sure will attend my wedding someday. This show was my high school, the best one a girl could dream of. And even though we’ll all move on to different projects, being able to say I grew up with people is something I’ll forever cherish. I of course can’t give enough thank you’s to you guys for the constant love - truly. We grew a following from nothing which is very rare for a show with quirky teenagers and special effects to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Whenever, whatever, wherever, I’m right there with you. xo, Landry," she concluded.
As it turns out, the cast and crew actually knew about the network's decision in December, but they weren't able to share the news with viewers until now. Ricky Garcia apologized to fans, while thanking everyone for their support along the way.
Sorry we couldn't tell you sooner. I love each and everyone of you. Thank you all so much for the support. BFW forever❤️— Ricky Garcia (@RealRickyGarcia) February 26, 2017
Gus Kamp kept his tweet short and sweet, while making sure he too thanks the fans for loving the show.
Rumors are true, BFW is cancelled after season two. Thank you all so much for your love and support, it's been amazing.— gus kamp (@guskamp) February 26, 2017
Bryana Salaz joined the cast in season two, playing Princess Daisy and she expressed how grateful she is to have come aboard and joined the cast.
It's been a dream being on Best Friends Whenever. I'm so blessed to have been apart of the family. ill never forget this incredible ride❤— Bryana Salaz (@bryanasalaz) February 26, 2017
Matthew Royer shared a sweet tweet, thanking his castmates.
And then he took to Instagram to share a longer message about how while this news is sad, the memories Matthew and his cast made will stick with him forever.
"I am sorry to share that #BestFriendsWhenever has not been renewed for season 3. As I am saddened by this news, it does not stop me from remembering the great friendships and memories I made as part of this wonderful project. First off I would like to thank Jed and Scott for giving my brother and I a chance to play Bret and Chet and for being amazing mentors. Next, I would like to thank our amazing crew and writing staff who week by week put in so much work to make this show absolutely amazing. I would also like to say thanks to my wonderful co stars who made this job so enjoyable week after week. Last but not least, our amazing fans. Without you guys there would have been no Best Friends Whenever. Thanks to you all! #twingers #disneychannel #disney #bfw," he wrote.
Matthew's twin brother Benjamin shared the same cast and crew pic, along with his message simply sharing his thanks to everyone involved with this series.
"I think for everyone, it's hard to say BFW has been canceled. I'd like to thank Jed and Scott for giving me such an incredible experience on the show. I'd also like to thank my co stars, Landry, Gus, Ricky, Lauren, Bryana, and my bro Matt for making these two seasons as enjoyable as possible, and last but definitely not least the fans. You guys are the reason we came to be such an amazing show. Thank you everyone! #BestFriendsWhenever," he wrote.
It's clear this series meant a lot to everyone who worked on the show and their bond will forever live on.
