So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy was disappointed when she heard SYTYCD’s Canadian counterpart would not be renewed for a fifth season. She was an integral part of SYTYCDC and came to know the cast and crew as her “second family.”

She posted her thoughts on her site MaryMurphy.tv. “I'm deeply saddened that CTV Television canceled SYTYCD Canada. It's hard coming off what I felt to be the best season Canada has ever had. I am very grateful to have spent so much time in Canada the last four years,” Mary said.

“Most important of all, is the loss of a format to showcase Canadian talent, and boy was there a lot of talent. This season was the best ever, and if something has to end, it is leaving at the highest level.”

Mary isn’t the only one upset over the news. Fans rallied together and started a petition on Facebook in a effort to sway CTV to rethink their actions. Will it work? It’s hard to say, but we share in the sentiment. Goodbyes are always hard to swallow.
