The television industry is extremely competitive and things move quickly, so when ratings drop, a show is often cancelled without any chance at redemption. This leads to a large turn over rate on networks like MTV. Sometimes we’re happy to see shows go, but other times our favorite shows are abruptly cancelled while they still have a large fan following! We’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane (some go much farther back than others) to look back on some of our favorite MTV shows that were cancelled and we wish would make a come back!

10. Faking It

This American romantic comedy series won the Teen Choice Award for “Choice TV Breakout Show” after it’s first season aired. Faking It followed the story of two best friends in high school who pretend to be gay in order to gain popularity. Their relationship becomes complicated when Amy ends up actually falling for Karma while Karma falls for one of the guys at their school, Liam Booker. The show only lasted for three seasons but had a strong fan base which made it awful when it was abruptly cancelled without a proper ending.

9. Road Rules

Road Rules wasn’t necessarily cancelled, but rather morphed into another show. As the sister show of The Real World, Road Rules was the second reality show created on MTV. It was on the air for a whopping 12 years and spawned 14 seasons! The series featured five or six strangers between the ages of 18 and 24, who had to give up their money and live on an RV that traveled between various locations. At each location the cast members had to compete in missions in order to stay on the show. It was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2001, but when one of the show creators passed away in 2004, the show went on hiatus. It was eventually turned into a whole new show called The Challenge which has now outlasted Road Rules with 29 seasons.
