I’m very disappointed and upset to have to write that MTV has cancelled Sweet/Vicious after just one season.
Sweet/Vicious fans everywhere will be mourning now that the show has officially been cancelled. Show creator Jenn Kaytin Robinson took to Twitter this afternoon to break the news that Jules and Ophelia would not be gracing our television screens again.
Robinson posted the message below:

Star Eliza Bennett also posted a note to Twitter:

Taylor Dearden posted a quick reply as well:
I love you all. Please know we will always fight to have your stories heard https://t.co/IBS9He5GgM

MTV sent out the following statement in response to the cancellation:
“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.”
The news comes as a bit of a slap in the face, considering it’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The series definitely had a passionate following and was completely unique in a sea of television shows where men were the leads.
Sweet/Vicious gave a sense of empowerment to its fans that is so hard to come by and it will be deeply missed. That is of course, unless it’s saved by another network or streaming service (Are you listening Netflix?).
