REPORTS: GEORDIE SHORE 'SET TO BE AXED BY MTV' AFTER 12 YEARS
Infamous reality series Geordie Shore is set to be axed by broadcast MTV after 12 years, The Sun have reported.
Production will continue on the series which has already been commissioned by MTV, then after that the show will go on an indefinite hiatus, according to the reports. This is understood to be due to falling ratings.
The series, which follows a group of young people who like to party all night long in Newcastle, sees the Geordies all live together in the same house, work during the day and party at night.
Its axing has not been announced by MTV. They told The Mirror in a statement: "Geordie Shore has not been cancelled and continues to be one of MTV’s biggest shows. We can't wait for fans to see what we have in store next season."
A source told The Sun: "MTV chiefs have decided the time has come to call it a day on Geordie Shore. The already commissioned series, which is the show's 24th, will go ahead with filming kicking off this weekend and the reunion will go ahead as planned later this summer...
"But once those have been filmed MTV have decided to rest the series and will not be commissioning any more. Think of it as resting the format rather than cancelling it out right. It's been one of the most successful runs of all time but the truth is it's not been the same for quite a few years...
"Bosses think it's the right time. The current stars of the show haven't been told it is being rested yet. Bosses can expect a mixed reaction - they love this show and they love filming it."
Geordie Shore airs on MTV in the UK.
