The Disney Channel has canceled its beloved show Andi Mack after three seasons.

The series was notable for covering a number of harder hitting topics for kids and young teens than the network had historically tackled, but particularly made waves with its coming out storyline.

One of titular character Andi’s best friends, Cyrus Goodman, came out in the second season of the show to both Andi and their other friend, Buffy, with the admittance that he had a crush on Andi’s boyfriend, Jonah.

But his coming out story continued gradually over the following season, with Cyrus eventually coming out to Jonah, and actually labeling himself “gay,” supposedly the first for a Disney Channel series.

Andi Mack was a labor of love for a room of impassioned, inventive writers, a talented and dedicated crew, and an extraordinary, miraculous cast who inspired us all,” series creator and Terri Minsky said upon news of the show’s cancelation.

“We had the honor of breaking a lot of new ground for Disney Channel. We were its first serialized show, its first series centered around an Asian American family, and its first to feature an LGBTQ character who spoke the words ‘I’m gay.’ But the best part of making Andi Mack was our audience, who let us know we mattered to them. The series finale is for them.”

Deadline reports that Andi Mack is actually Disney’s most-watched series overall and has a number of awards, which makes the cancelation choice confusing to fans.
