Bummer! It looks like we won't be seeing Lindy Sampson kick butt anymore.

EXCLUSIVE: Victoria Justice Talks Eye Candy & Why It's Important to See Diversity on MTV

On Saturday, Victoria Justice announced to fans that her MTV series, Eye Candy, won't be back for a second season. "I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2," Justice shared on Twitter. "Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart."

Prior to Justice's official announcement, fans of the 22-year-old actress had created an online campaign urging MTV to bring Eye Candy back for a second season — an effort and support that did not go unnoticed. "Last but definitely not at all least, thank you to the amazing fans. I saw all of your WW trends (it might be 23 or 24 to date) and your unflinching support," Justice wrote.

"It's because of all of you that I get to do what I love. I am beyond grateful for that. It made me so happy that you embraced the show the way you did. I was so lucky to have you guys along for the ride, because you made it that much more exciting!"

The 10 episode thriller, based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling novel, premiered on MTV in January. It centered on on a 21-year-old hacker named Lindy (played by Justice), who was persuaded by her roommate to give online dating a try and winds up coming face-to-face with a serial killer.
