Talk about deja vu. The original "TRL" aired on the music network from 1998 to 2008 and was shut down, as well. Now, the rejuvenated program has suffered the same fate. TMZ is reporting: "We obtained an email sent to employees informing them the series is being canceled once again. As you might know, TRL was brought back to the network in October, after being off the air for nearly 9 years."
The news outlet continued: "According to the message ... TRL will not be returning April 9 as it was scheduled to after going on hiatus in February. Instead, the afternoon show will 'pivot to short form content that will be featured on social and digital platforms.' MTV thought they'd greenlit 'Godfather: Part II,' but it was more like 'Part III.'"
TMZ also adds that the "Total Request" after shows will continue to air. It was nice while it lasted, we guess. Hopefully a new, more successful music show will premiere in its place in the near future.
