The Freeform original series Everything’s Gonna Be Okay has always been many people’s go-to feel-good series. Showing what it means to embrace being different and helping many to understand the benefits of being optimistic is something that fans were grateful to have seen depicted in modern-day television especially during trying times like these.

Audiences often praised this show’s ability to make everything feel like it was, indeed, going to be okay, which explains why the show has gone on to acquire plenty of positive reviews and ratings including a near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes critic score of 95% for the first season and a perfect score of 100% for its second season.

However, despite doing so well amongst viewers everywhere, Freeform ultimately decided to cancel the show after two seasons.

Just like many others, you probably have tons of burning questions about this unfortunate decision, but the most important one that is on everyone’s mind is—

Why was Everything’s Gonna Be Okay canceled?

Unfortunately, not much is known about why the television network decided to cancel the series, but we’re guessing that it may have had something to do with the show’s viewership.

The show’s pilot season garnered more than 100,000 viewers each episode, and the highest viewed episode, “Seven-Spotted Ladybug”, had about 300,000 viewers. However, the second season’s first episode had a huge drop in viewership, acquiring about 190,000 viewers for the season premiere.

The numbers only continued to dwindle each episode in season 2, evidence that the show simply could not seem to hit the same stride that it did before.

Naturally, there could be plenty of other reasons why Everything’s Gonna Be Okay was canceled, but, as of right now, declining views is our best guess.

Will Everything’s Gonna Be Okay be renewed for season 3?

Of course, there is still always a chance that a show could be revived despite not being renewed, however, that doesn’t appear to be the case for this Freeform show. Series creator Josh Thomas confirmed on his Twitter that the chances of the series’ returning for a third season are extremely slim and that this goodbye is permanent. Check out Josh Thomas’ official statement down below.

We know that it’s extremely somber to see a series go, but, look on the bright side, we got two seasons of this amazing show to watch at any time we want. We can relive all the best moments that we know and love on Freeform and Hulu! Everything is truly going to be okay.
