The Eye Candy mystery seemed to be solved at the end of Season 1 when black-hat-hacker-turned-police-white-hat Lindy discovered [spoilers ahead…] that one of the guys she met at her friend’s club IRL through Flirtual was in fact the killer.
Yet, the series left viewers with a new mystery: Lindy learned that her sister faked the kidnapping and ran off three years earlier to protect Lindy from someone.
For those who were eager to find out next year who this mysterious “someone” might be, MTV’s recentannouncement is bad news: The network decided to cancel the series and not give it a second season run.
Needless to say, a lot of fans are angry about the announcement and suspect that MTV made the decision months ago right after Season 1 began. Fans like Christian Broda (crunchbase.com) understand that the reason they have these suspicions is because the network stopped showing the series on its YouTube channel after the first three episodes although it was still free on the MTV website. It also stopped promoting the series as much.
MTV currently has a lot of new shows in the works, including an adaptation of the Scream film series.
Anyone who still needs some sort of Eye Candy fix can turn to the original work that prompted creation of the series — the young adult book of the same name by R. L. Stine — that didn’t end the same way as the show.
