Word is that MTV has pulled the plug on their freshman series Eye Candy. The series was based on a novel by R.L. Stine and focused on a teen-aged computer expert who was searching for her missing sister and a serial killer. The show may have been in trouble from the start as it was majorly overhauled after the pilot, keeping only a couple characters.
The news of the cancellation came from the series star Victoria Justice who posted the following to Twitter via TwitLonger:
Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn't have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there's our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank you to Jason Blum and the Blumhouse team, you guys are amazing! Jessica, thanks for all your hard work and dedication to Eye Candy.
Last but definitely not at all least, thank you to the amazing fans. I saw all of your WW trends (it might be 23 or 24 to date) and your unflinching support. It's because of all of you that I get to do what I love. I am beyond grateful for that. It made me so happy that you embraced the show the way you did. I was so lucky to have you guys along for the ride, because you made it that much more exciting!
As for @Caseydiedrick, @HarveyGuillen, @Kierseyclemons, @fryryCooper & @JohnGaret, I love you all and I'm so excited to see what great things you guys will be doing next. Let's all grab dinner next week and celebrate a show that we all loved and were so proud to make.
Love to you all,
