BET Cancels ‘Rebel’

Welp. It’s official…BET has canceled John Singleton‘s drama series, “Rebel.”

Danielle Moné Truitt, who starred as Rebecca “Rebel” Knight, confirmed the cancellation in a post on her IG page.

She expressed her gratitude to the fans of the show and also noted that “one monkey don’t stop no show.” (Which is true unless you’re Chance Givens.)

I want to take this time to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who have supported me through out my journey with REBEL… my family, friends, and fans! The show will NOT be coming back to @bet for a second season.

Nevertheless, I am so grateful for the opportunity to have played such a badass, brave and beautiful woman on Television. A reflection in many ways of so many women I have the privilege of knowing. I am one of a very small number of Black Women in history to have led a Television Series. I will always be proud of that, and the work I did on #RebelOnBET. My first lead role on TV. ❤️

Thank you @johnsingleton for seeing my light and making sure it shined bright AF! Thank you @amani.walker for creating REBEL and thank you @djclassicz and @marvistaent for making sure she was brought to life! Thank you @castingwithkimfor taking a chance on a new face! Thank you @tvsrandyhuggins for giving Rebel heart and layers. Thank you @zolamash and @stephengranthill for championing our show and doing as much as you could. Thank you @tamaratgreg for all of your work and for just being nice to me. Thank you @iamrobireed and @melmassmedia, my beautiful Sorors, for embracing me.

To my co stars, writers, directors, cast, and crew… you all are incredibly talented and dope Humans! I love ya’ll so much and I look forward to all the amazing work you will continue to do!

As my Mama would say… “One Monkey don’t stop no show…”. The “show” has only just begun ya’ll! What is next for me is gunna blow your minds… as well as mine, because that is the kind of God I serve and the kind of faith and persistence that lives within me! I will persist until I succeed. I will not allow yesterdays success to lull me into todays complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that the best days of my life are waiting for me to arrive! #ThankYou #Gratefulness #IAmRebelKnight

Another one bites the dust. Will you miss the show?
