The fictional series followed two young women who acted as vigilantes against rapists on their college campus. An MTV spokesperson also offered a statement, writing that the network is “extremely proud of this critically acclaimed series” and “deeply disappointed such an impactful show did not find a larger audience.”
“MTV has decided to not move forward with a second season of Sweet/Vicious. We are extremely proud of this critically acclaimed series and are deeply disappointed such an impactful show did not find a larger audience. Sweet/Vicious was a show we loved from the start, with empowering female leads and a message we believe in. We are grateful the series started a much needed dialogue around sexual assault, and thank the talented Jennifer Robinson, Amanda Lasher, Stacey Sher and the stellar cast, writers and producers for creating such a timely and thought provoking series.”
