MTV's Finding Carter will not be moving forward.

The Viacom-owned cable network has canceled the drama starring Kathryn Prescott after two seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Co-star Zac Pullam leaked the news Friday on Twitter: "Sad to say it but if you don't already know, Finding Carter won't be returning for a season 3."

The drama wrapped its run in December, pulling 330,000 total viewers for its supersized season two finale. 

Starring Prescott as a teenager who learns that her mother abducted her as a child, Finding Carter showed signs of promise at MTV as the cabler picked up an additional 12 episodes for season two, doubling its order to 24 episodes, ahead of its season 2A finale. The drama was a standout on DVR. 

For MTV, the cancellation comes as the younger-skewing cable network recently launched The Shannara Chronicles, based on the best-selling book series. The genre drama ranks as the most expensive pilot the network has produced. Its roster of dramas also includes veteran Teen Wolf and its Scream reboot.
