Oh, geesh! You'd think they would have learned after how badly they effed up Skins!

MTV has officially picked up a full, 12 episode season of their re-imagining of the UK series The Inbetweeners, which will premiere most likely in lieu of a second season of Skins in 2012!

The series tells the story of four awkward teenage boys, who will be portrayed this time around by relative unknowns Bubba Lewis, Joey Pollari, Zack Pearlman, and Mark L. Young.

MTV's head of programming David Janollari says:

"It's got an incredibly strong and authentic young voice. We were really successful in adapting it for our audience and making it sound like a quintessentially American suburban experience."

Here's hoping this is true!

We'd love to see this, along with Teen Wolf, the new Beavis & Butthead, and I Just Want My Pants Back bring some old-fashioned, decent scripted TV back to the network…but we're not holding our breath!

What do U think?? Will U watch this remake??

    NOOOO-please stop taking really funny British shows and re-making then…they are never as good as the original, and really, is America so stupid that we can't understand the accents?



  2. 2

    That's a pretty elaborate April fools…



  3. 3

    This show was perfect. Why on earth would you remake something that is perfect already? It wouldn't work with an American cast anyway.



  4. 4

    BUS WANKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  5. 5

    hopefully this is an April Fools joke. The show is perfect. MTv fucks everything up. I will not watch it.



  6. 6

    You just can't substitute the word clunge.



  7. 7

    Please be an April Fools joke…

    This will be a disaster it will probably just end up like a tv version of American Pie.

    the British InBetweeners is to-die-for funny, so they will have to work pretty hard to make this anything like it. I mean, the humour is raw, and rude, and dumb headed outrageous. If they failed with skins they'll fail with this for sure.

    NO NO NO NO NO NO, WHY WHY WHY WHY
    It wont work, granted I've never watch the office but that's the only show that did ok.
    Being Human on syfy it's ok compared to the british version.

    Re: Unitedfan1 – Shameless US is better than the UK version.
    MTV will ruin this show, though.



  12. 12

    OH MY FUCKING GOD. Please STOP!!! The Inbetweeners is perfect as it is. It doesn't work with American humour. Please don't do this.



  13. 13

    Are you f-ing kidding me!? WTF. I hate MTV. I had that the In-Betweeners writers, etc. are even letting this happen. Bullshit. :(



  14. 14

    Please let this be an April Fools joke. You CAN'T duplicate The Inbetweeners!! Bunch of wankers!!



  15. 15

    American humour is a bit rubbish, they're going to kill the best show in the world! :( Why bother? It's perfect as it is!

    Re: Laura0274 – Then why are American shows all over British television? Looking at my Sky TV guide right now, 80% of the shows on currently are American sitcoms. British people must like them!

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – No its not.



  19. 19

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! why ??



  20. 20

    Re: Sharada – Yes it is. I doubt you've watched it.



  21. 21

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Saw the first episode of US Shameless and didn't really like it but I suppose I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the rest. I can't see it being better than UK Shameless was a few years ago but it might be better than the original has been recently.



  22. 22

    Why do they keep butchering such good shows!????!!!??! MTV already ruined Skins!!!!!



  23. 23

    How can you make an American version of "bus wankers"?
    And they'll never do an episode with simon's nut out.
    I just started watching this show and I got so mad when I found out about the American remake!
    If they ever do a misfits remake I will throw such a fit.



  24. 24

    there is another article on here about the inbetweeners and how much justin bieber likes our version , surely that shows americans would understand our version?



  25. 25

    Skins, Shamless and now Inbetweeners?
    If America remakes Misfits…..
