Bad news today for fans of watching overprivileged white hipster teens continually having sex with each other in between having sex with each other—MTV announced today it will not renew the controversial Skins program, in which (you guessed it) overprivileged white hipster teens continually having sex with each other in between having sex with each other, for a second season. (Also, insert your own “how about they play some music for a change?” joke here).
Sigh, Skins, we hardly knew you—unless you’re one of the millions of people who frequent TMZ, know who Perez Hilton is, or have even the vaguest ability to log onto the internet, wherein it’s almost impossible to not bump into at least five or twelve rich white celebteens in various states of undress by noon (hi, Miley).
Anyway, MTV breaks it down like this, according to the AV Club:
“Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped…We admire the work that the series’ creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it.”
And by “core audience,” they meant, of course, pedophiles. Keep on winning, MTV.
What do you think of the Skins news?
