The young star, Demi Lovato, has confirmed she’ll leave the show to focus on her health, recovery and her career as a singer.
“We respect Demi’s decision to focus full-time on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,” said Disney in a statement.
“She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity.”
Disney will reinvent the series as a sketch comedy show called “So Random!” debuting in June.
Disney said the “Sonny” spinoff has “allowed them to save over 75 full-time jobs and of course, business for the many vendors who get work from the production.”
