AceShowbiz – MTV is reportedly planning to cancel one of its popular TV shows, “Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant“. A new report suggests that the spin-off series of “Teen Mom” will not go beyond its sophomore season.
MTO News noted that a recent tweet from The Ashley hinted that the show might end after season 2, which recently ended. “is teen mom young and pregnant going to have a season 2 reunion or was last week the final episode?” a fan asked, to which The Ashley responded on March 3, “They are not having a reunion; i will have more on the show this week. stay tuned!”
The Ashley appeared to hint at the cancellation of ‘Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant’.
The report also stated that the show’s ratings were among the reasons why MTV allegedly decided to cancel the show. The February 4 episode of the show was this season’s highest rated show with 511,000 viewers. Meanwhile, its season finale, which was the second highest rated show, brought in 470,000 viewers.
That seemed like a good number but the season averaged a meager 407,000 viewers per episode without the two episodes.
This arrives after it was rumored that MTV planned to cancel “Teen Mom OG” after 10 years. According to previous reports, MTV had tried to keep the show alive, but the viewership was on a steady decline for the majority of the season as it dropped into the 600,000 range per episode.
Additionally, the network tried to boost the ratings by adding a new permanent cast member. Mackenzie McKee, who first appeared on “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom 3“, joined season 8 of “Teen Mom” to fill the void left by former cast member Farrah Abraham.
Another thing that the report noted was that most of the moms have aged out of the series. The point of the show was showing the struggles of young mothers. However, as the show goes on, cast members are getting older.
MTV has yet to comment on the cancellation rumors.
