Actor Lisa Arch, who portrayed the child-hating Principal Hader in Nickelodeon's live-action original comedy series 100 Things to Do Before High School, has announced that Nickelodeon has decided to cancel and not renew the popular sitcom for a second season. Lisa broke the unfortunate news in a Tweet on her official Twitter profile page, @Flawless_Mom, confirming to a fan that the show had been "officially" cancelled.
Created by Scott Fellows (Big Time Rush), 100 Things to Do Before High School follows the comedic adventures of 12-year old CJ Martin (Isabela Moner) who always dreamed that high school would be the greatest years of her life. After her older brother Ronbie (Max Ehrich) warns her that life after middle school is not quite the teenage dream, CJ becomes more committed than ever to strengthen her friendships with her two best friends, Fenwick Frazier (Jaheem Toombs) and Christian "Crispo" Powers (Owen Joyner), before high school ruins their lives forever. Together, with the help of Mr. Roberts (Jack De Sena, All That, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Pootatuck Middle School's guidance counselor, they embark on a bucket list of adventures that help them overcome class cliques, terrifying bullies and clueless teachers. For CJ, Fenwick and Crispo growing up means trying everything and taking chances while they still can.
