'RJ Berger' Cast Reacts to Cancellation
MTV announced on Friday that it would not be moving forward with a third season of its half-hour original comedy, The Hard Times of RJ Berger. The series aired its final episode on May 30, leaving many questions unanswered for fans.
The cast, including series star Paul Iacono addressed the cancellation on Twitter.
"RIP RJ Berger," he wrote. "You were a great guy in more ways than one. On to bigger and better…"
Amber Lancaster, who played RJ's dream girl Jenny, wrote "It's sad but true #RJBerger got cancelled after 2 amazing seasons. Thank you to all the fans who loved and supported us. xo #RIPjennyswanson."
Actress Kara Taitz said, "RIP RJ Berger. Lily will always love you!"
Taitz's character Lily leaves one of the biggest cliffhangers of the series, revealing during the season 2 finale that she is expecting RJ's baby.
"R.I.P. #RJBerger It was great being your dad," wrote Larry Poindexter, who continued to discuss the cancellation with fans, cast and crew via Twitter.
"Wish someone had called me," he tweeted at Iocano after hearing the news. Poindexter then thanked co-creators David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith for giving him "such great stuff to do."
Katzenberg wrote, "R.I.P. #RJBerger Thank you to the fans and everyone involved in the show. What an incredible journey." Season 2 newcomer Caitlin Crosby re-tweeted his comment, adding that she would be continuing "Onwards & upwards!'
Jayson Blair, Pinkerton's resident bad boy posted, "I regret to inform you that Hard Times has ben [sic] cancelled. Thank you to everyone that supported us for the last two seasons. I have nothing but love for you!" Similarly to Taitz, Blair exited Season 2 with a shocking admission. A notorious womanizer through both seasons, Blair came out of the closet as a gay teen in the series finale.
The MTV comedy saw Iacono as a well-endowed high school student, and debuted its second season to record ratings. The cable network will be launching the new half-hour comedy Death Valley later this month, as well as the January dramedy I Just Want My Pants Back. The upcoming comedy Inbetweeners is in production for next year.
MTV renewed Teen Wolf for a second season this July, while a decision has yet to be made on Awkward.
