MTV cancels Buckwild

April 10, 2013

MTV has cancelled its top-rating reality show Buckwild, days after the death of its 21-year old star Shain Gandee. The show was in the middle of shooting its second season.

According to US gossip site TMZ, the show’s producer JP Williams said he plans to continue the show, which follows the lives of a group of young people from a West Virginia town, and criticised MTV for its decision.

Last week Gandee, his uncle David Gandee and Donald Myers died of carbon monoxide poisoning in a Ford Bronco after getting trapped in mud while offroading.
