Has MTV cancelled Teen Mom 3? That’s what some of the show’s young stars are tweeting.
The Teen Mom franchise, a spinoff of the now-defunct 16 and Pregnant, has long drawn controversy for MTV. Critics alleged that the programs rewarded troubled teens and glamorized youth parenthood. But this weekend, the press came when two Teen Mom 3 participants tweeted that the network had pulled the rug out from under their show after only one season.
“Teen Mom 3 was one of the best experiences I ever had! I will never forget it!” Briana DeJesus tweeted on Saturday, later adding that it’s “time to move on from MTV and do bigger and better things & no I don’t mean become a porn star lol.”
(Yep, Farrah Abraham, she was probably talking about you.)
Briana’s costar, Alexandria Sekella, also sounded pleased to happy to hear of the show’s cancellation, writing:
“Yes no more teen mom 3. Guess we weren’t enough of train wrecks for it to be interesting. America wants to watch crazies oh well #relieved.”
MTV has yet to officially confirm Teen Mom 3 has been axed. Teen Mom 2, meanwhile, returns for its fifth season on Jan. 20.
