Just after one season, it has been revealed that MTV's crime thriller Eye Candy has been dropped
The series was comprised of 10 episodes and debuted in January. Based on the novel by R. L. Stine, the show followed the story of a 21-year-old hacker who joins a dating website, only to then suspect that one of her suitors may be a serial killer.
Taking to Twitter, main star Victoria Justice announced:
“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.”
She then went on to praise her wonderful cast, saying:
"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."
Justice also thanked showrunner Christian Taylor and Jason Blum, saying "you guys are amazing!"
Lastly, she turned to her devoted fans:
“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,” Justice wrote. “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!”
It really is such a shame when a show is given the boot, but I'm sure you guys will join me in wishing the cast a massive good luck in all of their future endeavors!
