It looks like MTV can do without its pants. According to, MTV's "I Just Want My Pants Back," which centers on young hipsters living in Greenpoint, will not be back for a second season.

"We're proud to have aired 'I Just Want My Pants Back,' with its impressive creative pedigree and talented group of actors," MTV said in a statement. "Many factors go in to determining renewals, however, and ultimately, we decided not to move forward with an additional season of 'Pants.'"

The show's pilot previewed in August 2011 to more than 5 million viewers, but its official debut in February 2012 had 1.2 million viewers. However, the series maintained more than or close to 1 million viewers during Season 1.

Series star Peter Vack told HuffPost TV portraying a hipster in Brooklyn wasn't that much of a stretch.

"Growing up in New York, hanging out in Brooklyn, wearing tight pants -- I don't wear that tight of pants, but I certainly don't wear baggy jeans -- I think, yes, I am a hipster," Vack told HuffPost in January. "For the audition, I didn't have to play anything up. I just was who I am. I think the thing about Jason is that he's not like Lench, the guy who he goes to work for. [Lench] is like the stereotypical, annoying hipster-type. Now Jason, he's a hipster because he wants to live in Brooklyn and write for a music magazine, but he's really just like any guy who moves to New York with dreams of doing something cool."
