A second fan said: “I think the reason why I’m so angry about dare me getting cancelled is because I literally wasn’t expecting it?? Like the cast was giving us hope, Herizen, Willa, Marlo and Abbott. So it’s like there was no question it’d get renewed and then they cancelled it?? Out of nowhere??”
