They've created a monster, and now they must kill it. Multiple sources have told the New York Post that MTV is canceling Teen Mom 2 due to cast member Jenelle Evans' erratic (or what I like to call "psycho") behavior. The network thinks Jenelle's a liability and doesn't want her associated with their brand anymore, so their solution is to pull the plug.
The fourth and final season of Teen Mom 2 is currently filming (or has just wrapped), but from the sound of things, it'll never make it to air.

I mean, when one of the "stars" you've created has been hospitalized for alleged heroin use, has been to rehab twice, has gotten married, has tweeted obscenities about getting a divorce, has gotten pregnant, has had a supposed miscarriage, has gone to the bar after said miscarriage, and has shown a complete disregard for her 3-year-old son of whom she doesn't have custody, it's easy to see why MTV would like to distance themselves from a self-destructive person.
And while I'm sure it was a tough decision -- the show is a veritable cash cow for the network -- I'm happy to see they've taken some responsibility for Jenelle. Someone has to.
The show was originally created to present a cautionary tale of teen pregnancy, but thanks to gems like Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham, and Jenelle, the show's more about how the lives of young 20-somethings go spiraling out of control after gaining some fame, notoriety, and a bank account.
So far, MTV hasn't commented on the fate of Teen Mom 2, but with any luck, they'll announce its cancellation shortly.
