EXCLUSIVE: We’ve seen the last of MTV’s animated comedy Good Vibes as the cable network has opted not to pickup a second season of the series created by David Gordon Green. The decision came after weeks of conversations between MTV and Good Vibes producers about ways to keep the show alive. One potential scenario discussed involved pairing the animated comedy with MTV’s breakout live-action comedy Awkward for extra sampling. For its freshman run, Good Vibes aired in a block with Beavis And Butt-Head despite being far more female-skewing than the revival of Mike Judge’s 1990s animated staple. In the end, despite their faith in the Good Vibes‘s creative direction and its auspices, MTV brass felt that the series didn’t attract a broad enough audience to justify another season. Beavis & Butt-Head and Good Vibes premiered against Game 6 of the World Series in October, drawing 3.3 million and 1.6 million viewers, respectively. It is a bitter-sweet ending for Good Vibes, which still ran a season longer than anyone expected. The project, developed at Warner Bros. TV through Tom Werner’s studio-based Good Humor TV production company, was first given a pilot presentation order by Fox in 2008, with Adam Brody, Alan Tudyk, Danny McBride, Debi Mazar, Jake Busey, Josh Gad and Olivia Thirlby as the voice cast. Fox ultimately passed, which should’ve been the end of the road but Good Vibes producers didn’t give up, and in 2010 the animated comedy received a series order at MTV. Even the entire voice cast came back. As for Good Vibes‘ companion Beavis & Butt-head, conversations about its future are still ongoing.
