[04/01/13 - 11:36 PM] Development Update: Monday, April 1 Updates include: Matt Long joins ABC's "Lucky 7"; A&E eyes series order for "Those Who Kill"; and MTV halts filming on "Buckwild" following co-star's death.
SEASON(S): 1 (12 episodes, 0 of which have yet to air)
ADDITIONAL NOTES: confirmed as canceled on 4/10/13
DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's press release, April 2013) 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.'
