It’s time to start planning your farewell parties, Secret Lifers, because our favorite show is unfortunately coming to an end. ABC Family canceled our favorite show on Oct. 9, meaning that the final half of The Secret Life of the American Teenager Season 5 will be the last 12 episodes ever.

There isn’t an official start date for Secret Life’s 2013 return, but ABC Family noted that it will be in March. Our research pegs it to the last week in March, based on the fact that Season 3 and Season 4’s midseason finale was in early September, and then the show resumed during the last week of March.

Although the finale aired at the end of August this season, the schedule is only off by a few days. Based on that information, we think that Secret Life Season 5 will return around March 25, 2013. Time to mark your calendars (and plan your parties), Secret Lifers!
