It's all come tumbling down for ABC Family's "Make It Or Break It" (Mondays at 9 p.m. ET).
The network has revealed that the current third season will be the last for the gymnastics-centric drama, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed. The Season 3 finale, which is scheduled to air on May 14, will be its final episode.
On Twitter, "Make It Or Break It" creator Holly Sorensen confirmed the cancellation and hoped for a movie, or a reverse decision.

Fans have already begun a petition on Twitter to get the show back. One "Make It Or Break It" star, Nicole Anderson, who plays Kelly Parker, spoke out on Twitter as well.

"Make It Or Break It," which had 2.5 million viewers tune into its series premiere in 2009, only had 1.5 million for its Season 3 premiere.
"Make It Or Break It" airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC Family. Its final episode will air on May 14.
Ahead of their second live episode, two of the show's biggest stars talk about their characters' wild antics.
"Laverne & Shirley" is basking in a new round of honor and nostalgic praise. The show will be honored with a fan favorite award at the upcoming TV Land Awards, and "Good Morning America" hosted a cast reunion Thursday morning.
The show's legendary creator Gary Marshall stopped by "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC) where he updated viewers on his sister Penny Marshall's health status and told a few funny stories about working with her.
"They think she's sick, she was sick 3 years ago. She's healthy and terrific ... they have old pictures" he said. Marshall was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in 2009.
Marshall went on to explain the unique challenges of working on a TV show with his sister. "Usually you do a show, you say 'Okay, we're done, goodbye, see you tomorrow, bye.' And I'd say that to Penny, but she'd follow me home. She'd come in the house and eat dinner and say, 'Let's work on the second act here.' And my wife would say, 'Is Penny going to eat or is she just going to write on the table jokes?'"

The cabler has picked up an additional 13 episodes of the crime-fighting drama.
UPDATED: The Fox drama will return for a 13-episode season, allowing the series to hit 100 episodes.
Outspoken Obama supporter Eva Longoria has penned an op-ed criticizing Mitt Romney for views she says are dangerous for the Latino community.
The piece, which was published in The Hollywood Reporter, alleges the GOP hopeful is "on the wrong side of every issue that pertains to Latinos." Longoria -- who is a co-chair of the President's reelection campaign -- cites Romney's opposition to the DREAM Act and support for SB1070 (Arizona's controversial immigration law) as indicative of a nefarious agenda.
On the flip side, she says Obama has been great for the community, noting that the President has increased the number of Pell grants available to Hispanic students. Longoria also claims the democrats' healthcare legislation would help secure insurance for an additional 9 million Latinos. (Longoria released a video Thursday explaining why she supports the President.)
Though some are quick to dismiss celebrity viewpoints on politics and current affairs, Longoria says she's simply doing her duty as a citizen and cites her involvement with her foundation, Eva's Heroes, as emblematic of a passion for politics and issues relevant to the Latino community.
The article is hardly the first time the "Desperate Housewives" star lambasted Romney. She took to Twitter in January of this year to protest his opposition to the DREAM Act, tweeting that though "85% of Latino Voters support the #DREAM act, 100% of @MittRomney doesn't."
In March, Longoria appeared on MSNBC to discuss co-chair role. "There is an attack on women's health care and President Obama's policies are the only ones that are going to move the agenda for women's rights," she said at the time.
She also stopped by CNN to say the economy is the number one issue Latino voters are concerned about.
Longoria says she has no aspirations to run for office. "God, no. I have more power as a citizen," she writes. "Once you become a politician, your hands are tied. I'd rather have a voice."
It would follow, then, that the actress believes Obama's hands are just tied with looser ropes than Romney's.
