LOS ANGELES, July 23 (UPI) -- The dance-themed drama series "Bunheads" will not return to ABC Family for a second season, the U.S. cable network said.

"'Bunheads' is a wonderful series that we are very proud to have aired," ABC Family said in a statement Tuesday.

"The series had amazing storytelling, the most talented cast and a passionate and loyal fan base. Recognizing all of this, we took extra time to try and find ways to bring the series back for another season, but in the end it simply wasn't possible. We wish the cast and crew the best in their future endeavors," the statement said.

Starring Sutton Foster and Kelly Bishop, the series was about a former Vegas showgirl who moves to a small town in California and teaches dance after the sudden death of her husband, TVGuide.com said.
