BET Cancels 'Hit the Floor' After 4 Seasons

Even though the cable network is making a significant investment in scripted programming, BET has today decided to cancel its original drama series Hit the Floor after four seasons.

Hit the Floor was one of the show's that saw itself being taken from one network to another due to the executive and programming shifts across the Viacom brand. It aired its first three seasons on VH1 before moving to BET for its fourth and final season. The BET season only featured eight episodes - its lowest episode tally for a season during its run.

The drama's fourth season starred Brent Antonello, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Katherine Bailess, McKinley Freeman, Jonathan McDaniel, Don Stark, Kyndall, Tiffany Hines, Kristian Kordula, Cort King, Teyana Taylor and Durrell Babbs.

BET released the following statement on the cancellation: "At this time, BET Networks will not be moving forward with a fifth season of Hit the Floor. We are grateful to the most passionate fans ever who helped to bring one more season of the #DevilsNation to the screen, and the incredible cast and dancers. We would especially like to thank and recognize the acclaimed executive producer and creator of the series James LaRosa for his passion and vision. We look forward to finding ways to continue in partnership."
