"Shake It Up!," the hit musical-comedy that co-stars Oakland native Zendaya, has been canceled by the Disney Channel.
The series, which also features Bella Thorne, will conclude its run after its current third season, with the final episodes set to air this summer and the fall.
"Shake It Up," which debuted in 2010 to an impressive average of 6.2 million viewers, is pegged to a pair of best friends who star on their local TV dance program.
The cancellation might be surprising, given that "Shake It Up" still pulls in robust ratings -- ranking No. 1 among children 6-11 and 9-14 -- but the Disney Channel tends to end some shows before the decline sets in.
It's certainly not the end for Zendaya. The talented 16-year-old, who recently finished second on "Dancing With the Stars," has signed on to star in a Disney Channel original movie based on the book "Boys Are Dogs." Meanwhile, her debut album, with Hollywood Records, is set to debut in September.
Thorne also has a Hollywood Records deal, a three-book deal with Random House and will star in the indie thriller "Home Invasion."
