The Bunheads community felt a jolt of hope earlier this week when Variety reported that the ABC Family drama — which has been in purgatory since its first season came to an end in February — had received California’s Film and Television Tax Credit. Could this mean, Bunheadsians dared to ask on Twitter, renewal?
No. Obviously, it’s not bad news. (Last month, I summarized all the bad news in this story, and then heard from Bunheads creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who is not particularly hopeful, for this story.) But basically, according to ABC Family, nothing has changed.
Here’s what a spokesperson for the cable channel told me when I asked what the tax credit means:
“The tax credit selection does not correlate to a pick-up of another season of Bunheads. I have nothing new to report on that. Any show that is in the program, that may be returning for a subsequent year, must submit an application prior to June 1 and the allocation is grandfathered in. We are not making a decision about a pick up until we know how our new summer series premiere. I promise I will let you know when I have news to share one way or the other.”
Our vigil continues, people of Bunheads.
