Created by Felicia D. Henderson and Charles Holland, “The Quad” starred Anika Noni Rose as a newly elected President of the fictional Georgia A&M University. Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Sean Blakemore and Jasmine Guy also starred. The series premiered February 1, 2017, with a two-hour pilot and was renewed for a second season that debuted January 23 and wrapped March 27.

The series dipped in ratings from its first to second season.

The news follows the cancellation of BET’s signature drama series “Being Mary Jane” starring Gabrielle Union last fall.
