TEEN MOM 2 is toast.
MTV has reportedly cancelled the controversial docu-series about (mostly) unwed mothers to avoid pay raises for its young stars.
“It all comes down to money,” a production source tells TheAshleysRealityRoundup.com. “Adding another official season would mean re-contracting all of the show’s workers and the stars.”
Instead, the network is expanding the fifth and final season to a whopping 25 episodes.
According to the production source, MTV’s money-saving tactic didn’t exactly sit well with some of the crew.
“Most people that work on the show just want to get it done with and move on with their lives,” the source said. “This is not the easiest show to work on.”
The source tells The Ashley that, although he/she didn’t know the specifics yet, the show’s producers are planning on doing a separate reunion for Season 5B. When that tapes, that will be the actual final episode for the series.
Some of the things that will be featured on Season 5B include Kail’s 22nd birthday and Jenelle’s on-going legal issues with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Courtland Rogers. The girls each posted photos recently that show a film crew capturing the Kodak moments of these events. Also up for review on Season 5B? Chelsea’s baby-daddy, Adam Lind‘s recent car crash and the resulting legal issues.
