MTV Cancels 'Teen Mom 3'


"Teen Mom 3" has been canceled by MTV.

There had been rumors swirling that MTV would not renew "Teen Mom 3" for a second season, and it was made official when cast members tweeted about the show coming to an end. One of the moms, Briana DeJesus tweeted:

The latest addition to the "Teen Mom" franchise, "Teen Mom 3" debuted in August but suffered from low ratings and a cast that some viewers felt were "boring."

MTV has not given an official reason for the cancelation.

Even though MTV won't renew "Teen Mom 3," "Teen Mom 2" is going strong and will debut its fifth season on Jan. 20, 2014.
