Dance Moms has reportedly been officially cancelled after the show's star was diagnosed with cancer.

The show ran on the Lifetime network for seven seasons before ending due to dance coach Abby Lee Miller's health concerns.

Miller was reportedly diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma shortly after being released from prison in March.

She had been serving a one-year sentence for bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations.

Radar Online says there had been plans to return with a smaller team for a new season of Dance Moms after Miller was released from prison.

A source told the website Miller, 51, had agreed to go back to the show on the condition teenage dancers Nia Sioux, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker, Cameron Bridges and Chloe Lukasiak did not return.

After her diagnosis the plans were then changed to focus more on her treatment, but it quickly became clear this would not be possible.

Miller is reportedly undergoing chemotherapy, and Radar Online reports the cancer has not been responding to treatment as doctors hoped.

"They are not sure she is going to recover from or make it at this point," an unnamed source told Radar Online. "It is so bad. They are waiting for tests results to come back and then they would know more."
