There won’t be a second season of Eye Candy on MTV as the show has been cancelled. The first season of 10 episodes averaged an underwhelming 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 590,000 viewers. The finale aired March 16th.
On Eye Candy, a young female hacker (Victoria Justice) in New York City searches for her missing sister and becomes the target of a deadly stalker. The rest of the cast includes Casey Deidrick, Harvey Guillen, Kiersey Clemons, John Garet Stoker, Eric Sheffer Stevens, Ryan Cooper, and Melanie Nicholls-King.
Earlier today, Justice broke the cancellation news to her fans and wrote:
I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that MTV 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 Christian 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 Casey Deidrick, Harvey Guillen, Kiersey Clemons, Ryan Cooper & John Garet, 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,
