Question Disney's last season shows with different sets/setting

Why does Disney Channel more than often, overhaul the aesthetic for their sitcoms for their final seasons respectively?

For instance:
  • Hannah Montana - Season 4, went to some Malibu ranch or something

    Kickin' It - Season 4, different karate training center set.

    ANT Farm - Season 3, they went to some boarding school.

    JONAS became JONAS: LA; went from New Jersey to California.

    Liv & Maddie became Liv & Maddie: Cali Style; went from Wisconsin to Malibu.

    Austin and Ally changed the music store into a music school in Season 4.

    I Didn't Do It dropped the original premise.

Kids Incorporated - overhauled their intro and revamped the set for the central setting, the P*lace, as the glam of the 80s gave way to the grit of the 90s.

Bunk'd - It began as a spin-off of Jessie about the Ross clan at a summer camp. But for Season 4, Emma, Ravi and Zuri are gone.

I hated what they did to ANT Farm. That was never a favorite show of mine but the whole point of the series was that it was about kids who were "gifted" or whatever and went to a special class in a regular school. When that show started, it was destined to be a hit but they ruined it when they changed the whole premise. No wonder it only lasted three seasons.
