Sadly our days of watching cutie Gregg Sulkin in the popular MTV comedy Faking It have come to an end as the network announced they have canceled the show.

Faking It starred Rita Volk and Katie Stevens as two teenage girls who gain popularity after they’re mistaken for a lesbian couple; the LGBT-centric show also sported a fantastic supporting cast, including starred Sulkin, Bailey De Young and Michael Willett.

Meanwhile showrunner Carter Covington opened up to The Hollywood Reporter as to why the show never caught on:

“I’m not sure. I think the show will have a strong life in the future, whether it’s on iTunes or made available on Hulu or Netflix for long periods of time. I think people, when they found our show, really loved it. Early on, perhaps people thought it as a show for LGBT fans and even though I’ve never seen it that way ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I think the show appeals to a broad audience ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I do think it might have gotten that impression and maybe people didn’t sample it who didn’t feel like they fell into that audience.”

Carter also revealed his thoughts on a potential season 4 somewhere else saying:

“Unfortunately, MTV owns the show and usually shopping would be started by the studio and we don’t have a studio. There isn’t an entity that could shop it. It would have to be someone asking to buy the show from MTV and make more. And because our ratings weren’t strong, I don’t know if there would be any suitors. Sadly, I think this is the end.”


At least the showrunner runner revealed that he created a finale that could also potentially serve as a series finale with “happy cliffhangers.” YAY!

Well thanks for all the memories and make sure you catch the series finale on May 17 at 10:30 pm EST on MTV!
