Skins Canceled By MTV

Posted: Updated:

MTV announced Thursday that it has canceled "Skins," the racy remake of the popular British teen show, after just one season. Deadline was the first to report the news.

In a statement, MTV said, "Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn't connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped." The show attracted major buzz due to its edgy content, but fears about its explicitness sent advertisers fleeing in droves.
