Note: This is the last episode of season 3 and the entire series.
- Kenton Duty did not appear in one of the episodes as Gunther Hessenheffer as he said to BOP and Tiger Magazine that he would before the Season 3 even aired and the only time we hear about Gunther is by Tinka's mentions in Fire It Up and the quick mention by Deuce in Spirit It Up. He was even cropped out of the flashbacks in order to put the emphasis on Tinka's horribleness towards CeCe and Rocky so only his shoulder is visible.
- This is the first season not to feature Kenton Duty who plays Gunther and Buddy Handleson who plays Henry.
- This is the last season of Shake It Up but fans fought for a season 4.
- Due to unknown reasons, Shake It Up was intended to have a fourth season.
- Disney Channel declared the series was ending, not cancelled, which points to the fact that Shake It Up was intended to have a fourth season.
