It seems that the first season of MTV’s animated comedy Good Vibes will be its last as well, as the network execs have decided not to order a second season of David Gordon Green’s creation. The cancellation happened after weeks of negotiation between MTV and Good Vibes’ producers. MTV expressed its support for the series, and even planned to pair the show with MTV’s live action comedy Awkward but the plan didn’t pan out.
During its first season, Good Vibes was part of a programming block that includes Beavis and Butthead, even though the target demographic for the two shows were a bit different (B & B’s viewership skewed towards the male audience, while Good Vibes had more female viewers). MTV execs felt that Good Vibes didn’t attract a broad enough audience to justify another season, compared to B & B, which drew a hefty 3.3 million viewers when premiered against game 6 of the World Series, whereas Good Vibes only managed a paltry 1.6 million viewers.
While Good Vibes is definitely over, the fate of its companion show, Beavis and Butthead, is still up in the air, as conversations about its future are still ongoing
