It is being reported that World of Dance has been cancelled by NBC after four seasons. The sad news comes seven months after the competition series concluded its now-final run. Typically a summer show, its return came into question when it was left off of the network's summer schedule last week.

World of Dance brought together some of the world's most elite dancers in a fierce competition of artistry and athleticism. Solo dancers, duos, and crews engaged in battles that showcased a wide range of dance styles including everything from hip hop and break dancing to ballet and ballroom.

The show was generally a reliable performer for NBC each year in its summer slot. The reason behind the cancellation is not known, though it could be partially related to the ongoing global pandemic and travel restrictions around that, as the show does feature contestants from around the world.
