BET has opted against a fifth season of scripted sports drama “Hit The Floor.” Originally titled “Bounce” and initially airing on VH1, the series, created by James LaRosa, chronicled the off-the-court drama surrounding the Los Angeles Devils, a fictional professional basketball team. It moved to its fourth — and now final — season on BET this past summer.
“At this time, BET Networks will not be moving forward with a fifth season of ‘Hit The Floor,’” a network spokesperson 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.”
A total of 40 episodes of “Hit the Floor” were produced.
