ABC Family Cancels 'Nine Lives of Chloe King', Preps New Pilot from 'Gilmore Girls' Creator

'Nine Lives of Chloe King'Chloe King's cat-like superpowers weren't enough to save her from the scheduling ax: Just as the Fall 2012 Season is getting underway, ABC Family has canceled 'Nine Lives of Chloe King.'

'Deadline' reports that the drama has been killed off after just one season, but that as ABC Family takes with one hand, it gives with the other.

Fellow newbie 'The Lying Game' has received a 12-episode back order from the network, meaning that it will now air for an entire season.

It's also been reported that ABC Family's already looking ahead by preparing to order pilot episodes of 'Strut' from 'Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, and action drama 'Intercept.'

'Nine Lives' launched to respectable ratings in the summer, garnering over 2 million viewers for its premiere episode in June. It was warmly received by critics and was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards. However, by the time the finale aired last month, viewing figures had dropped to below 1 million.

Star Skyler Samuels took to Twitter to thank the show's fans: "I can't thank u enough for all of ur support, though we r sad to see it end, we couldn't have made it this far without u."

'Strut' has been in the works for the past year, and 'Variety' reports that Sherman-Palladino was brought in to retool the pilot after execs felt the project needed freshening up. The pilot was written by Lamar Damon ('The Rachel Zoe Project'), Anna Mastro ('The Pussycat Dolls Present') and Norman Buckley ('The O.C.'), but it's been languishing because producers were unable to secure the cast they wanted.

In a fish out of water scenario, 'Strut' blends the worlds of Las Vegas showgirls and Texas high school. It follows a showgirl who marries a stranger after a wild evening, and overnight finds herself living in a small town in Texas and reinventing the high school's struggling drill team.

'Intercept' is an action-driven drama written by Ray Wright ('The Crazies') about a group of crime-busting college students.

Let's try to get another network to pick up The Nine Lives of Chloe King. I just emailed SyFy at feedback@syfy.com and contacted USAnetworks at http://www.usanetwork.com/feedback/ . Maybe if several of you do the same, they'll consider it, and we can see a Season 2 .

For crying out loud Chloe King got canceled and Lying Game got renewed for nothing more than payback since Pretty Little Liars producers are behind that show. Well, I am done with ABC Family since there is no reason to turn on that channel again.
