LOS ANGELES — A week after the death of “Buckwild” reality-TV star Shain Gandee, MTV has decided to cancel the series.
Production on the show's second season was suspended after news broke last week that the 21-year-old had been found dead in his truck, along with his uncle and a friend, after going “mudding” (off-roading), near Sissonville, W.Va.
