Say Farewell to MTV's 'Faking It'

Faking It

The three-season teen comedy will come to an end during a May 17 finale.

Fans will have to say goodbye to MTV's Faking It after the season-three finale next week. Show creator Carter Covington revealed the show would not be renewed for another run.

The show broke new ground for teen comedies in 2014 by building the plot around a same-sex relationship between BFFs Karma and Amy (Katie Stevens and Rita Volk, respectively).

Openly gay character Shane (Michael J. Willett) also pursued some pretty steamy romances--especially with season two's Duke (Skyler Maxon).

Faking It also featured TV's first intersex role played by an intersex actor, Amanda Saenz. Transgender actress Laverne Cox even had a special guest role on the series.

MTV has the rights to the show, so Covington doesn't expect a revival in the future. But he hoped the show's push for more LGBT diversity will impact other shows on the network.
