After one season, MTV has axed “Eye Candy,” Victoria Justice’s well-publicized TV series. Read on for more details.

According to Examiner, the 10-episode drama/thriller series has suffered low ratings. It caused the network to cancel it. Nickelodeon alum Justice shared the news on Twitter. She wrote:

“I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that ‘Eye Candy’ will not be returning for Season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart.”

She also wrote an even longer message on her Facebook page that you can read here.

Justice played the role of Lindy Sampson, who was being followed by a cyber stalker. Then, she was forced to work with a  group of hackers to solve crimes including finding her missing sister. The show was executive produced by Christian Taylor and it debuted Jan. 2015.

Justice, who became well known for her roles on Nickelodeon TV shows “Zoey 101” and “Victorious” wanted to venture into more adult TV roles and “Eye Candy” was her first step to do this. The MTV show was based on R.L. Stine’s bestselling book.

Fans were looking forward to a second season of the show and before the news broke Justice even hinted that she might sing in Season 2. Sadly, the show didn’t make it. However, fans of Justice shouldn’t be devastated because she will be playing a role in the comedy film “The Outskirts,” which will premiere in theaters on June 26, 2015.
