Some of Teen Mom Jenelle Evans' cast mates have expressed their concern and have wished her well, but that might all change now that a source is claiming that MTV is officially canceling the series. E! is reporting that the fifth season of Teen Mom 2 was about to start filming, but Jenelle's latest arrest, this time for domestic violence and heroin possession, has made network execs put a stop, once and for all, to the madness.
If you're keeping track at home, this marks Jenelle's ninth mugshot.
Her heroin related arrest last week has "ruined any chance of a season 5." Allegedly, MTV only agreed to shoot a fifth season if Jenelle stayed clean and completed a therapy program. Since that's obviously not happening, it sounds like MTV's gotta make good on their ultimatum and cease production on one of their most popular shows.
It'll be interesting to see how the other girls react. Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Calvert were probably thrilled they got a fifth season and were likely looking forward to cashing MTV's paychecks. Now, it would seem, the lights have been shut off and everyone's gone home. Thanks, Jenelle.
But really, the network had no choice. With the recent death of a Buckwild star, many were taking a hard look at the programming and wondering where, or if, MTV would draw the line. When they canceled Buckwild after Shain Gandee's death, we were confused why Teen Mom 2, which ostensibly rewards teenage mothers and tolerates their drug habits and abuse patterns in the name of ratings, was getting another season.
Jenelle's alleged heroin addiction combined with the fact that her husband pleaded guilty to battery against their unborn child is all very real, but it doesn't belong on reality TV.
MTV hasn't commented on the cancellation of Teen Mom 2, but if they're a thoughtful bunch, they're packing up the cameras and wrapping production as we speak.
Do you think they should cancel Teen Mom 2?
