The cast of the MTV reality TV show "Slednecks" had bad news for its fans Tuesday: it appears the network did not renew the Matanuska Valley-based reality show for a second season.

The show followed a cast of young Alaskans and was primarily based in Wasilla. British newspaper The Guardian referred to it as "basically Jersey Shore on ice."

In the days leading up to the decision, the cast had taken to social media to try and drum up support for a second season through a Facebook page titled "Vote for MTV Slednecks S.2."

The cast of the show took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to make the announcement.

HEY EVERYONE!! @MTV are idiots and threw our show away! Who wants us to come back #slednecks #perse #ridehard #NewYear #NewYearsResolution— Zeke turecki (@Zeke_turecki) December 30, 2014

Amber Stepp blew her fans virtual kisses. Tosca Yeager promised the adventures would continue, even without the camera. And Trevor Hash just said it as it was:

Calls to MTV to confirm the cancellation were not returned Tuesday afternoon.
