*** Rumors swirled about a ChannelHop to Creator/{{Freeform}} but that didn't happen, possibly because of actors looking to move on to the next project with Sofia Wylie moving on to other Disney projects and Joshua Rush whose character was the fan-favorite BreakoutCharacter becoming more active in politics.


** The show's drop in ratings is either a systemic or cyclical problem, not a problem with the show itself. Even at the end of season 3, Andi Mack performed better than most of its contemporaries, including fan-favorite Raven's Home and shows in their first season like Co-op and Cami and Sydney to the Max.

to:

* Confirmed(ish) in the series finale. TJ holding Cyrus' hand certainly appeared more than friendly.




to:

* Jossed, both series have ended without one. There was no good place in the story for a crossover, either.




to:

* Jossed, the show stayed independent throughout its entire run.




to:

* Seemingly unlikely after we saw Jonah's mother, though he could very easily (and did) feel embarrassed.


Season 1 was about Andi’s Birth. Season 2 was about Cyrus’s Transitioning to understanding himself. So I can assume someone’ll die. Andi And Cyrus have had FirstEpisodeSpoiler so Buffy’s Mom could die. Since her mom’s in the milatary it is even more plausible. It would be very tragic. Of course who’s not to say a Death theme will be about Jonah? Or a metaphorical “death”?

** People say that it's because of the mature and controversial storylines and that Disney are homophobes, but I don't think so. If this show was too mature for Disney, it would never have been greenlit. If Disney were actually homophobic, they wouldn't have allowed Cyrus to be gay in the first place.

Be glad they at least allowed Cyrus to say "I'm gay", a rarity for children's shows.

* Low ratings. If you look on Wikipedia, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andi_Mack#Ratings the show's average viewers in millions for Season 3]] are significantly lower than that of the previous two seasons. This probably isn't because of low popularity or no advertisement, as ''Andi Mack'' is very popular and new episodes always get advertised. It could be because cable is dying and streaming is taking over, but that's not the show's fault. Perhaps Stoney Westmoreland's arrest soured the show's reputation slightly. Speaking of which.....

* High costs. ''Andi Mack'' is more expensive for Disney Channel to produce than their other shows. Notice how it's shot on location, unlike other Disney Channel sitcoms, which are filmed on a set and are relatively cheap to make.
** Another finance-related possibility is the Utah Film Commission not giving Disney enough tax credits to make Season 4. Disney have stated that they are dissatisfied with Utah’s incentive program and intend to film their projects elsewhere. If this doomed Andi Mack, then it will doom any future seasons

They made him a touring musician to provide a sort of back door to the showbiz-glitz HighConcept that's worked so well for Disney since ''HannahMontana'' in case the show worked but sputtered. They could write him into a major-label recording contract if needed to boost the ratings. Since the low concept SliceOfLife format's been a runaway success, he'll be loading his instruments in his old Subaru to go to local gigs for a while yet.

Of all the main characters, he's the only one whose home life we know nothing about. His lack of social skills and anxiety and panic attacks could be the result of a stressful home life. He's ok with dating the emotionally abusive Amber because it's what he's used to or better than what he's used to at home. And he seems very willing to go to camp for eight weeks even though he won't see all his friends all summer. Maybe he wants to escape a bad home life.

* Stoney Westmoreland's arrest. His controversy caused his scenes to be deleted and the cast to do reshoots. Maybe it was too overbearing and Disney cancelled it to save themselves any more trouble.

Added DiffLines:

** Jossed. "We Were Never" wasn't even about Cyrus and Jonah, and [[spoiler: when Cyrus comes out to him in "One In A Minyan", he's fine with it. Also, Cyrus ended up saying the word "gay" - a first for a kids' show]].

[[WMG: If Jonah turns out to be straight, one or more of the other characters will also come out as LGBTQ+ so the show can have a same-sex couple with a happy ending]]


Gradually, as the rest of the season and the series progresses Jonah will be revealed to have an anxiety disorder of some kind and he'll be shown having another panic attack later again on.
