TV Show Eye Candy Gets Cancelled

22 July 2015

After just 10 episodes, MTV’s cyber mystery drama, Eye Candy was cancelled. Leading lady Victoria Justice broke the news on Twitter confirming that the show would not be returning for season 2 and praising her fellow cast members and the fans that had stayed loyal to the show. Like so many other TV shows before it, Eye Candy now joins the long list of failures, all of which were concluded by poor audience viewing figures.

Eye Candy was based on the book by R.L. Stine and followed tech genius Lindy played by Victoria Justice, a 21-year-old woman who is persuaded by her roommate to begin online dating. She quickly begins to suspect that one of her suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker, and so teams up with her friends, a band of hackers, to solve the murders he committed while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City in an attempt to find her sister, who was kidnapped three years earlier.

During the four short months that it was shown on MTV, Eye Candy received mixed reviews with Entertainment Weekly stating that although Victoria Justice was a winning actress, she was in fact miscast for this role and not helped by a story line that felt like an old US television movie that would have suited Shannen Doherty and Rob Estes far better.

The majority of the show was filmed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and was Victoria Justice's first major television role since Victorious.
