Freeform isn't going back to college after all.

The cable channel has scrapped plans for a Greek reunion movie, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

First announced in April, Greek: The Reunion was supposed to pick up five years after the end of the series, with the original cast reuniting at the five-year reunion for the fictional Cypress-Rhodes University. The series wrapped in 2011, which would have put the five-year milestone at 2016.

The movie was set to be timed to the holidays — likely as part of Freeform's annual 25 Days of Christmas programming block — but a formal premiere date was never announced. 

Series creator Patrick Sean Smith was attached to exec produce with Shawn Piller and Lloyd Segan. No castmembers had yet been confirmed for the reunion.

Debuting in 2007 and running for 74 episodes, Greek starred Clark Duke, Tiffany Dupont, Scott Michael Foster, Spencer Grammer, Paul James, Jake McDorman, Amber Stevens West, Dilshad Vadsaria and Jacob Zachar. Among them, Foster, Duke, Stevens West and James are series regulars on other series: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, I'm Dying Up Here, The Carmichael Show and The Path, respectively. However, it's unclear whether their availability played a factor in Freeform's decision not to move forward with the project.

The news was first reported by TVLine.
