Adaptation of British sitcom debuted in August
"The Inbetweeners" now falls solidly in the "canceled" camp.
MTV has decided not to go forward with a second season of the scripted series, which premiered in August and was an adaptation of a British sitcom of the same name.
“While we won’t be moving forward with another season of 'The Inbetweeners,' we enjoyed working with the show's creators and such a talented, funny cast," an MTV spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement.
The series starred Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman, Mark L. Young and Alex Frnka as a group of "inbetweeners" — that is, kids who fall somewhere between nerds and jocks on the spectrum of teenage cliques.
The "Inbetweeners" cancelation follows the dropping of the MTV scripted effort "I Just Want My Pants Back" in May after one season.
