Some were upset while others were hopeful that So Random would live up to its name. Star Tiffany Thornton posted what she was feeling on Twitter for the fans:
“We are all sad that Demi is no longer on the show and will miss her tons. We are, however, fortunate to still be working! And are super excited for y’all to see the new format of So Random. We hope y’all like it!”
Tiffany added, “We love you @ddlovato and can’t wait to hear ur next album. Also, may I just say, @ddlovato I couldn’t be more proud of the woman you’ve become these past 6 months and I look forward to seeing the blessings God will pour out on your life and the many ways He will use you to help others. Love you @ddlovato.”
WILL YOU STILL watch So Random? JJJ hopes you do!
Demi Lovato has left her Disney Channel series Sonny with a Chance, JustJaredJr.com can confirm.
â€œIt made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,â€ the 18-year-old starlet revealed. â€œItâ€™s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldnâ€™t be a better time for me to move onâ€¦ I donâ€™t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery. Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.â€
Demiâ€™s decision has the full support of Disney Channel.
â€œWe respect Demiâ€™s decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,â€ a rep for Disney Channel said. â€œShe is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity.â€
In January, Demi completed a three-month program at a treatment facility for â€œemotional and physical issues.â€
While Demi Lovato is off getting well, Disney is reworking her series, Sonny With A Chance.
According to Variety, the writers on Sonny will center their writing efforts on So Random! sketches. So Random! will feature guest stars, comedy sketches, musical performances and digital shorts — a teen SNL!
A Disney Channel spokeswoman shared about the situation, “This allows her the time she needs to get well, without distraction or pressure. Again, we extend our ongoing support to Demi and her family as she works to overcome personal issues.”
This is a temporary situation as the show goes back into production in January.

The Sonny With A Chance soundtrack is out TODAY!
JJJ caught up with starlet Tiffany Thornton how her songs on the album differ from her true sound. She shared, “I have two songs on the soundtrack and I wrote both of them. One is a bit more pop than country. It’s a bit more of Disney than my own music. I’m definitely more country than pop. ‘Sure Feels Like Love’ is more of the kind of music you’ll hear from me in the future.”
Tiff also dished on going back into the studio and where you can see her next: “I’ll be heading back to Nashville soon to record some new songs. I’m also going to be performing at the AllyKatz Tween Summit in New York on the 10th. Mitchel Musso will also be there and it’s my really first big performance in front of hundreds and hundreds of people.”
She continued, “I’m excited and nervous. I’ll be doing both of my songs that are from the soundtrack. After the summit, I’ll be going to Nashville to record some stuff that I recently wrote.”
