Sources connected to the show tell us MTV decided to stop production in the middle of the second season of the show … which followed the lives of young people in a rural West Virginia town.

We’re told MTV didn’t give the cast and crew any specific reason for the cancellation. An official announcement is expected Wednesday morning.

There were other issues since the show debuted in January — the arrests of 2 other cast members … Salwa Amin for drug possesion and Michael Burford for DUI.
