It was Freeform’s longest-running comedy series to date, but the current sixth season will officially be the last for “Baby Daddy.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has decided to end the show’s run after the potential for picking up ABC’s “Black-ish” spin-off, which will follow Yara Shahidi’s character in a college setting, was presented to the cable channel. After initially earmarking funds to extend the sixth season, the money went to the new show instead, meaning that “Baby Daddy” was forced out of production.

The series’ 100th episode, which will air on May 22, will now serve as a season finale for the show, but it is penned as a series finale as well, meaning that fans of the series should expect to get closure instead of being left hanging with unfinished story threads.

The show starred Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane, and followed the story of Ben (Bilodeau) and his friends after a daughter he conceived during a one-night stand is left at his doorstep. In addition to Ben trying to adjust to a new life as a single dad, his friends also adapted to the new situation, which affected their personal lives throughout.

Though it doesn’t appear that the show’s ratings played into the decision to cancel it, it had experienced some dips over time, though the sixth season, according to TV Series Finale, had averaged a 0.21 share of the 18-49 demo.

News of the cancellation has rocked fans of the show, who took to social media to express upset that it would be coming to an end.

“Baby Daddy” isn’t the only series which has come to an end on Freeform this year. Flagship drama series “Pretty Little Liars” is wrapping its run after seven seasons in the next few weeks, and drama series “Switched at Birth” also ended its run earlier this year.

Both the networks and cable channels have added a surprising selection of shows to their cancellation lists this season, all of which have led to some uproar from loyal fans. Freeform, which is owned by Disney, isn’t the only property the company has which has decided to end popular shows. ABC had announced a full slate of cancellations, including veteran shows “American Crime,” “The Catch,” “Dr.Ken,” “Last Man Standing,” “The Real O’Neals,” and “Secrets and Lies.” Freshman shows “Conviction,” “Imaginary Mary,” “Notorious,” and “Time After Time,” were also cut from the network.
