Rumor: The City Might Not Return for Another Season

Rumour has it that MTV has canceled (seemingly) successful scripted reality series The City. The current season, which airs on Tuesdays at 10.30pm EST, will be its last.
The City, a spin-off of the The Hills, which was a spin-off of Laguna Beach, documents the “life” of Whitney Port, a young designer trying to make it in New York. It mostly takes place at real-life fashion industry companies, including Kelly Cutrone’s public relations firm People’s Revolution and Elle magazine, where main characters Erin Kaplan and Olivia Palermo “work.” (Kaplan does indeed work full time at Elle, Palermo does not.)
In general, we’re a bit surprised by this news.
The City seems genuinely popular, and even if it doesn’t pull in ratings equivalent to those of The Hills (which is also ending this season), it’s much buzzier. For a brand like MTV, it seems like it’d be worth sacrificing some ratings for press.

It's just a rumor so far but I am hoping this isn't true. 'The City' really found it's stride this season and for it to end it now would be such a loss for the cast and for us fans...

  1. well according to the rumor is wrong. Tony DiSanto, MTV’s president of programming and development, tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the show’s rumored demise is “Totally 100 percent not true.”

  2. It's FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I hope this isn't true. I actually like this show better than The Hills. Can't say I'm surprised though.

  4. Thanks G! I am thrilled to hear that : )
