Before entering December, let´s add some more to the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012, in ths case a show that says goodbye, as MTV cancels The Inbetweeners after a single season of the US version of the Birtish show. Another adaptation that just could not make it past freshman year.
MTV briefly said in regards to The Inbetweeners cancellation: “While we won’t be moving forward with another season of The Inbetweeners, we enjoyed working with the show’s creators and such a talented, funny cast.”
What was The Inbetweeners about? Plot Synopsis
MTV is bringing viewers a summer full of “inbetweeners” – that is, not nerds or jocks, but kids who are smack in the middle of the high school social ladder – with the premiere of the new scripted comedy series “The Inbetweeners” on Monday, August 20 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Following in the vein of established scripted hits on the network such as “Teen Wolf” and “Awkward,” “The Inbetweeners” takes a comedic look at a group of teenagers navigating high school and charging into adulthood the way everyone does…by taking one step forward and three steps back. Whether humiliating themselves in an effort to impress the girl of their dreams, or mercilessly mocking their friend for driving a bright yellow clunker with a cassette player and one blue door, get ready to embrace the “inbetween.”
“The Inbetweeners” is based on the critically acclaimed award-winning British series, and was adapted for the U.S. by Brad Copeland (“Arrested Development,” “My Name is Earl”). The pilot was directed by indie filmmaker-writer-director Taika Waititi (“Flight of the Conchords”). “The Inbetweeners” will air following the return of Rob Dyrdek’s hit series “Ridiculousness” at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, that same night on MTV.
“The Inbetweeners” stars Joey Pollari as Will McKenzie; Bubba Lewis as Simon Cooper; Zack Pearlman as Jay Cartwright; Mark L. Young as Neil Sutherland and Alex Frnka as Carly D’Amato.
