MTV’s TRL reboot reportedly being reworked (not canceled)
UPDATE: An MTV spokesperson issued a statement saying that they’re reworking the series, expanding TRL to mornings and late nights:
TRL has been a huge success for us and we’re expanding the franchise with daily late night and morning shows this summer
MTV rebooted its “Total Request Live” series in October of 2017 to very poor reviews. Now they’re reportedly pulling the plug on the revived series, according to an internal email obtained by TMZ. The new TRL went on hiatus in February and was scheduled to return again on April 9, but instead the show will reportedly “pivot to short form content that will be featured on social and digital platforms.” The “Total Request” late after shows are set to continue.
Goodbye again, TRL (this time for good?). Watch Brockhampton‘s wild appearance on the reboot that brought them, blue faced, into the streets of Times Square, below.
