ABC Family Axes 'The Nine Lives of Chloe King'; Stars React
If you were one of those hoping to catch season 2 of The Nine Lives of Chloe King, we're disappointed to say that it won't happen. ABC Family has canceled the show after it completed its first run, hoping to make way for other pilots that are in the works.


The debut season of The Nine Lives of Chloe King introduced us to a 16-year-old who discovers a deep, dark secret and a group of strangers who wish to hunt her down and kill her. Of course a love triangle found its way into this already involved adventure and mystery story -- audiences were left with a season 1 cliffhanger when Brian kissed Chloe in desperation after she had been shot by an assassin and left for dead. With the kiss, Chloe's curse held true and Brian died in her arms. 


Based on a trilogy of books written by Liz Braswell is,  viewers hoped that The Nine Lives of Chloe King season 2 would follow that storyline. In the second book, Chloe embraces her Mai ties and learns more about her roots. She moves to a secret Mai headquarters and slips into the role of a true heroine. Her love life is never far behind.  Being a teenager, she still deals with everyday high school drama, a.k.a. boys. 


Too bad we won't be able to see any more of that, EW.com reports. Apparently, ABC Family has axed The Nine Lives of Chloe King season 2 because the network has two other shows lined up. 

The first is a pilot called Strut, written by Amy Sherman-Palladino of Gilmore Girls fame. It's about a Vegas showgirl who soon becomes an instructor for a bunch of high school misfits in the drill team. Meanwhile, the other series, called Intercept, revolves around a group of crime-fighting college students. 


Still, the cancellation of The Nine Lives of Chloe King came as a shock. Even the stars of the show had something to say about it, so they Tweeted their reactions and let the fans know how much they meant to them.


Actress Skyler Samuels showed her appreciation for those who've tuned in faithfully to the series. Her fellow castmates Benjamin Stone and Ki Hong Lee were also thankful for all the support.
