Shed another tear for Nickelodeon.
Executive producer and creator David Israel confirmed How To Rock‘s cancellation on his Tumblr.
“Why isn’t the show coming back? There’s no one simple answer. Nickelodeon is going through a transition right now. You already know that iCarly and Victorious are not coming back. Nickelodeon has many new shows in production and development that they believe will better suit their audience. While I don’t love their decision, I have no choice other than to accept it. The Nickelodeon executives who’ve worked on the development and production of How to Rock have been incredibly supportive of the show this past year. They’re good people who want nothing more than to make the best shows for their audience. I know it wasn’t an easy decision for them — they truly do like the show — and I’m grateful for the time and energy they’ve put in to make How To Rock as good as it is. Or was.”
He continued, “There is good news. We made 26 episodes. You’ve only seen 17 of them. Meaning — quick, do the math — there are NINE new episodes still to come and Nick will be showing all of them. Seasons of British shows are often 6 episodes. So if you think British right now, you still have a season and half of new How To Rocks. Smashing.”
Star Noah Crawford tweeted to his fans, “The best episodes have yet to air so look forward to them! And I hope you have enjoyed watching Nelson as much as I have enjoyed playing him. Remember when one door closes another opens. I’ve got some exciting projects on the horizon that you’re gonna love. Love you all.”
ARE YOU SAD that How To Rock is not returning?
