The super queer revival of A League of Their Own will be returning, but only for four episodes.

Rumours of a limited renewal were circulating in late March and were met with outrage from fans, sparking a #MoreThanFour campaign online.

The eight-episode first season focused heavily on queer and Black stories that were overlooked in the 1992 film by Penny Marshall.

The series currently boasts an impressive 94 percent rating among critics and 87 percent score with viewers on Rotten Tomatoes.

“We’re deeply proud of the work that Abbi, Will, the cast, and crew have done reimagining A League of Their Own which has produced an incredibly loyal fan base as well as achieved numerous, well-deserved recognitions and accolades,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon and MGM Studios.

“After hearing what Abbi, Will, and the writing team have planned for the new story within this wonderful series, we are excited for our fans to see what comes next.”

In March, Autostraddle reported that the crew behind ‘A League of Their Own’ were pushing for an extended second season, however the crew and fan campaign appears to have fallen on deaf ears.

“Making this show and seeing the impact it has had in the world has been an incredible joy,” Creators Will Graham and Abbi Jacobson said in a joint statement Wednesday.

“While obviously we were hoping for 11 seasons, we’re grateful to be able to continue to tell the story of these characters and this world.”

The cancellation of A League of Their Own has perplexed fans, who have taken to social media to express their disappointment.
