MTV canceled its reality series Buckwild in the wake of the death of one of its stars, but the network said Wednesday it will still air a Buckwild TV special.
Buckwild: WV to the NYC will air on Sunday, April 14 following a day of programming dedicated to 21-year-old castmember Shain Gandee. Gandee was killed last weekend with two other men when they were overcome by carbon monoxide after their truck got stuck in mud while off-roading near Sissonville, West Virginia. Network sources tell Deadline the special will include a short tribute to Gandee.
MTV released a statement saying, "With the support of his parents, Dale and Loretta Gandee, we will run the tribute following a day of programming dedicated to Shain in which we will air the entire first season of Buckwild." MTV said in the statement it "was not an easy decision" to cancel the series, which had been renewed for a second season, but the network felt "it was not appropriate" to continue without Gandee.
MTV says the special was shot before production had begun on the now-halted second season.
