MTV has decided to cancel The Inbetweeners after one season and 12 episodes. While the original UK series was a hit overseas, the American version never caught on with a substantial audience.
A spokesperson for MTV said, “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.”
Revolving around a quartet of misfit teenage boys who are trying to fit in at high school and make it through that awkward stage of life, The Inbetweeners stars Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman, and Mark L. Young.
The show’s first (and only) season garnered a mere 620,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic while the last season of Teen Wolf averaged 1.69 million and a 0.7 demo rating. Current comedy Underemployed seems to be mirroring Inbetweeners’ numbers so this cancellation certainly doesn’t bode well for that show.
What do you think? Will you miss The Inbetweeners TV series? Are you sorry that the show has been cancelled?
