"Buckwild" Star Shain Gandee to Be Celebrated in Tribute Special

Second season of 'Buckwild' in West Virginia will not air on MTV.

By James Montgomery (@positivnegativ)

"Buckwild" star Shain Gandee will be remembered in a special set to air this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. The network provided the following statement to MTV News:

"After careful consideration, MTV will not be moving forward with season two of 'Buckwild' in West Virginia. We love the cast and the show and this was not an easy decision, but given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately.

On Sunday, we will be running a special, 'Buckwild: WV to the NYC,' which was shot before production had begun on season two. With the support of his parents, Dale and Loretta Gandee, we will run the tribute following a day of programming dedicated to Shain in which we will air the entire first season of 'Buckwild.' "

"Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time for our family. We have truly felt all the love and know that Shain is resting peacefully. Shain was an incredible, outgoing and positive person who was loved by whoever he met. We are honored that we were able to let the world see what a wonderful son we had. He was the best son anyone could ask for. As we look to honor him in our lives every day moving forward, we are happy to share some of his last moments doing what he loved best: having fun and making people laugh," said Loretta Gandee.

The "WV to the NYC" special will also include footage shot with "Guy Code" stars Charlamagne and Lil Duval, who visited the cast of "Buckwild" back home in West Virginia and then took them around New York during their first group trip to the city. The special will cap off a marathon of the first season of "Buckwild," which will air beginning at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday.
