It’s game over for the Hit the Floor TV show. The scripted series has been cancelled after three seasons on VH1 and a fourth season on BET.
The Hit the Floor TV show revolves around the lives of the LA Devil Girls dancers and the LA Devils basketball team. They live in a world of fame, money, power and sex in professional basketball. In season three, familiar faces (as well as new dancers and basketball players) fight to stake their claim under the red-hot spotlight of the LA Devils nation. The regular cast includes Brent Antonello, Katherine Bailess, Kyndall Ferguson, McKinley Freeman, Tiffany Hines, Jonathan “Lil J” McDaniel, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Cort King, Kristian Kordula, and Teyana Taylor. Guests in season four included Logan Browning, Dean Cain, Tank, Terrence J., and Erika Jayne.
The eight episodes of season four finished airing in August of this year. The fourth season averaged a 0.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 383,000 viewers. Compared to season three on VH1, that was down by 78% and 71%, respectively.
“At this time, BET Networks will not be moving forward with a fifth season of Hit The Floor,” the company said in a statement. “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.”
