(NEW YORK) -- MTV has scuttled Skins from its lineup.
The racy teen drama, which drew the ire of the Parents Television Council when it premiered earlier this year for its depiction of underage sex and drug use, has been canceled after just one season, according to Deadline.com.
MTV says of its adaptation of the hit British series, "Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn't connect with a U.S. audience as much as we had hoped."
Following the debut of Skins, which was rated MA for mature content, the PTC asked the chairmen of the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees, as well as the Department of Justice, to investigate the show for child pornography and exploitation. The show subsequently lost a number of advertisers, including Taco Bell and the Wrigley Company.
