The second deteriorate of MTV‘s Finding Carter TV uncover finished on a cliffhanger, with Tuesday’s deteriorate dual culmination episode, “Atonement.” Since MTV has conjunction cancelled nor renewed Finding Carter, as of yet, will fans also be left hanging?
The expel of Finding Carter includes: Kathryn Prescott, Cynthia Watros, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Alex Saxon, Zac Pullam, Alexis Denisof, Jesse Henderson, Vanessa Morgan, Milena Govich, Caleb Ruminer, Jackson Rathbone, and Ben Winchell. Will a second deteriorate be this cast’s last?
We have been tracking MTV ratings for a following scripted shows: Awkward, Eye Candy, Faking It, Finding Carter, Happyland, Scream, and Teen Wolf. Of those shows, Finding Carter is a usually one with an uncertain future.
Eye Candy, that has already been cancelled, warranted a 0.25 in a 18-49 demo, with an normal sum assembly distance of 650,00.

Warning: a following contains spoilers for a deteriorate dual finale.
Excerpted from The Hollywood Reporter:
What was a feeling in a writers room when we were formulation out how this deteriorate would end, not meaningful if you’d come behind for a third season?
It was, ‘What would be a good cliffhanger-y push?’ If we were going to continue, what would be engaging to leave everybody unresolved and holding on, and what does a assembly caring about? And what would we like to see? And afterwards try to get a accord from a network about what they would caring about as well. We came adult with many, many opposite ideas and this was a one we all concluded on.
Now that Max incited himself in to a military for murdering Jared to strengthen Carter, what does that meant for him going forward? Would a intensity new deteriorate concentration on his authorised conflict to stay out of jail?
I don’t privately consider that a assembly would be hugely meddlesome in examination a hulk authorised conflict with Max on TV. […] And as we know from this show, there are a lot of ways that a hearing could go. So we have a lot of choices about how to understanding with it from a romantic feelings that Max would have about a whole thing and legally as well.
His admission also signaled a order between Carter and Taylor, given they any wanted opposite things for him. Would we see their attribute detonate even some-more subsequent season?
The dignified choices they were peaceful to make in a impulse paint a difference between them. They’re impossibly tighten though they have all kinds of container between them, generally where Max is concerned. It would be engaging to excavate into that between a dual of them and give us a approach to mystify their relationship.
The culmination suggested Crash (Caleb Ruminer) lied to Carter about saying someone, given he’s still in adore with her. Will subsequent deteriorate concentration on their attribute again?
We didn’t wish to bonus all Carter went by and how deeply she felt for Jared. But we all have that chairman that is a stone and a feelings between them never went away. Every time she had a doubt about Jared, she always went behind to Crash. And who Crash has turn is a ideal chairman she would wish to love. They have a unequivocally low bond and I’d adore to play with what that means to her relocating forward.
Ben (Ben Winchell) was left flattering most for passed by a finish of a culmination after removing into a quarrel with his drug play boss. What would his story demeanour like going forward?
[…] We finished adult meaningful that he has a good heart, and it unequivocally is usually a resources that done him act a approach he did. We’re on his side, though he’s been sucked behind into this life in a approach that he might not get out of. Will he delight eventually? we wanted to leave it adult in a air. It could go possibly approach with him.
How do we feel about a state of scripted shows on a network in a arise of programming boss Susanne Daniels’ departure, and where does Finding Carter fit in?
I don’t unequivocally engage myself too most in a politics of a network. I’m some-more of a artistic end. So if a uncover is picked adult and they need it to go in a certain artistic direction, I’ll representation them where we consider a uncover should go. But we don’t get concerned in how they’re feeling about what shows they wish to collect adult or not.
How do we feel when showrunners know a show’s predestine is still adult in a air, though finish a deteriorate on a cliffhanger? Should they tell their stories they approach they want, or give fans some closure, usually in case? Should Finding Carter be cancelled or renewed? Tell us.
