While paying lip-service to the vigilante drama, MTV has defended its decision not to proceed with Season 2. Despite the show’s critical acclaim and relevance, the network says it failed to capture a large enough audience:
MTV has decided to not move forward with a second season of ‘Sweet/Vicious.’ We are extremely proud of this critically acclaimed series and are deeply disappointed such an impactful show did not find a larger audience. ‘Sweet/Vicious’ was a show we loved from the start, with empowering female leads and a message we believe in. We are grateful the series started a much needed dialogue around sexual assault, and thank the talented Jennifer Robinson, Amanda Lasher, Stacey Sher and the stellar cast, writers and producers for creating such a timely and thought provoking series.”
Will you miss Sweet/Vicious in the likely event that Season 2 doesn’t find a new home?
