Whitney Port confirms The City has been cancelled

MTV has cancelled The City, meaning the official end to the three-series franchise that helped to transform both MTV and reality TV. Its second season concluded this summer, on the same day that The Hills ended forever, too.

Whitley Port told Ryan Seacrest that “As of right now it doesn’t really look like we’re doing it anymore.” She said that “No, at this point it’s not” possible it will continue on another network.

But Whitney–who insisted in June that the show wasn’t cancelled–isn’t concerned: “I’m working on some other things. It’s okay, one door closes and another opens.”

Update: MTV confirmed the cancellation, saying in a statement, “‘The City’ will not be returning to MTV for season three. Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again.”
