‘Floribama Shore’ canceled after four seasons

Fans will have to say goodbye to ‘Floribama Shore’.

MTV has canceled the drama-filled reality series after four seasons, TMZ reports Friday.

According to the outlet, the cast and crew were told the news earlier this morning. However, the reason for the cancellation is still unknown.

Many of the cast members were reportedly confused by the news, as the cameras were present during the wedding of Nilsa Prowant and Gus Gazda, which was set to appear in Season 5.

Amid the news, Prowant posted photos from her big day to Instagram, seen as a camera crew standing behind the couple as they said, “I do.”

The show first premiered in 2017 and followed a group of young adults as they partied at the Florida Panhandle.

Before it ever aired, the show was mired in controversy.

At the time, sources told us that the series was sent a stop-and-desist by a bar called Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar for allegedly stealing their name.

The bar — which was twice named the best American beach bar by Playboy — even started the hashtag campaign #ONLYONEFLORABAMA in hopes it would force MTV executives to change the reality show’s name.

“We recently learned that MTV and Viacom are using our name and reputation to promote their latest ‘reality’ series after approaching us in much the same way in 2013,” a statement from the owners reads. “We asked them to stop. They have refused… There is only ONE Flora-Bama.”

Well, after five years, it looks like Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar have won.
