Loosely Exactly Nicole Season 2

MTV's Loosely Exactly Nicole Revived for Season 2 by Facebook (?!)

Sloppy seconds, anyone?

In a surprising move, Facebook is reportedly reviving Loosely Exactly Nicole — an under-appreciated comedy canceled by MTV earlier this year — for a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series is among many projects the social networking site has planned to beef up its roster of original content.

Loosely Exactly Nicole starred comedian Nicole Byer (Party Over Here) as herself, chronicling her irreverent misadventures in love and life as she attempts to make it big as an actress in Hollywood. The series also featured Jacob Wysocki (Pitch Perfect) and Jen D’Angelo (Cougar Town) as Nicole’s loyal best friends — even if they didn’t quite get along with one another.

It was one of several freshman series canceled by MTV in recent months, a list that also includes pot comedy Mary + Jane and campus-assault drama Sweet/Vicious.

According the report, on which neither Facebook nor Jax Media are commenting, a writers’ room has been opened and several cast members are expected to return. MTV is no longer involved with the show.

    Can’t they revive Sweet/Vicious instead?

    • Andy Swift says:

      It’s a more important show, for sure, but I feel like Facebook is going after comedies. Which makes sense.

      • Steven says:

        If they’re going for comedies then they should have picked up Faking It. MTV keep creating great shows and cancelling them while Awkward and Teen Wolf (sorry Andy!) dragged on well past their expiration dates.

        • Andy Swift says:

          lol no need to apologize — we can all agree that Awkward and Teen Wolf went on longer than necessary.

          Faking It would have been an amazing save, but too much time has passed. Much of the cast has moved on.

          • Bartimeus says:

            Speak for yourself, I still wish Teen Wolf had gone for 7 or 8 seasons.

          • I think Faking It could still be saved if a network, streaming service or Facebook wanted to save it. Yes, several cast members have moved on to new shows, but I think they might be willing to reunite for another season of Faking It after they’re done shooting the seasons of their current shows. In the right hands, Faking It could be a hit show, like it was during Seasons 1 & 2A (before MTV sabotaged the show).
