The Greatest Dancer will not return for a third season. 

A spokeswoman for the BBC has confirmed that Simon Cowell’s dance format, his first project with the network following Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor, has confirmed the cancelation. 

In a statement, she said: “Whilst there are no plans for a further series of The Greatest Dancer, we are proud of the show and would like to thank everyone involved in bringing so many memorable moments to BBC One.”

The show saw undiscovered dancers mentored by dance captains Cheryl Tweedy, Oti Mabuse, Matthew Morrison, and Todrick Hall. 

The second season saw a major drop in ratings, drawing a reported 2.8 million viewers for its final month, per Variety.
