When the primary star of new ‘MTV‘ show ‘Buckwild‘ Shain Gandee died earlier this month, fans of the show wondered whether plans for the second season to air would still go ahead. The second season was actually in the full-swing of production when Shain and 2 others died in his truck due to Carbon Monoxide poisoning a fortnight ago, and ‘MTV‘ immediately halted further plans for filming. Now company executives have reached the decision to end the show for good in Shain‘s honour.
An ‘MTV‘ representative explained the final decision: “After careful consideration, ‘MTV‘ will not be moving forward with season two of ‘Buckwild‘ in West Virginia. We love the cast and the show and this was not an easy decision, but given Shain‘s tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately. On Sunday, we will be running a special, ‘Buckwild: WV to the NYC,’ which was shot before production had begun on season 2. With the support of his parents, Dale and Loretta Gandee, we will run the tribute following a day of programming dedicated to Shain in which we will air the entire first season of ‘Buckwild.'”
