Los Angeles, March 12:
Netflix has ended the family comedy-drama series “The Baby-Sitters Club” after just two seasons.
Created by Rachel Shukert, the show was based on the bestselling novels by Ann M. Martin and followed the friendship and adventures of seven friends – Kristy, Claudia, Stacey, Mary Anne, Dawn, Jessi and Mallory – as they were starting their own babysitting business in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
It featured an ensemble cast of Sophie Grace as Kristy, Momona Tamada as Claudia, Shay Rudolph as Stacey, Malia Baker as Mary Anne, Xochitl Gomez (replaced by Kyndra Sanchez in season two) as Dawn, Anais Lee as Jessi and Vivian Watson as Mallory, with Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein.
“I wanted to be a part of the world created by Ann M. Martin since I was 7 years old, and for two amazing seasons I was able to do that. It was a dream come true,” said Shukert, who also been showrunner, in a statement to Deadline.
“Though I am heartbroken not to be returning to Stoneybrook for 20 more seasons, I am so proud of the incredible show our incredible cast and crew have created and how it has brought joy and comfort to so many people when they needed it most,” she added. .
“The Baby-Sitters Club” hails from Walden Media and was produced by Michael De Luca alongside Lucy Kitada and Frank Smith, Naia Cucukov and Ben Forrer, Shukert and Lucia Aniello of Walden Media. (PTI)
