Teen Mom 3 has been canceled and will not return to MTV for a second season.
"MTV will not be moving forward with a second season of Teen Mom 3," a network representative told Us Weekly.
Teen Mom 3 featured former 16 & Pregnant stars Mackenzie Douthit, Briana Dejesus, Alexandria Sekella, and Katie Yeager.
"We're thankful to Briana, Katie, Mackenzie, Alex and their families for sharing their stories as they navigate young parenthood and for helping to have a positive impact on the importance of teen pregnancy prevention," added the representative.
Although MTV failed to specify why it's pulling the plug on the reality series, viewers have reportedly slammed the show for lacking drama.
Dejesus, a 19-year-old mother to a daughter named Nova, tweeted this past weekend how she feels about the end ofTeen Mom 3.
"Teen Mom 3 was one of the best experiences I ever had! I will never forget it! Time to move on from MTV and do bigger and better things & no I don't mean become a porn star lol," Dejesus wrote on Twitter, jokingly referencing former original Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham.
Yeager also took to Twitter, saying, "I'm grateful for this experience. [My daughter] Molli and I are ready to move on from this and live a normal life. Thanks for all the love and support."
The first season of Teen Mom 3 premiered in August.
