Is Made in Staten Island Canceled?
MTV have never officially announced that the series has been cancelled from their network, the simply cut it from air at after episode three.
However, they’ve also refused to release a statement confirming that Made in Staten Island will continue on MTV at another date.
Basically, we’re stuck in limbo.
What has Karen Gravano said?
The series boasts Mob Wars star Karen Gravano as their executive producer.
Addressing the issue in a live Facebook video in April, Karen said: “We didn’t get cancelled.”
Her comments came from her personal page and were not affiliated to anything official from MTV.
We are working. We weren’t cancelled. We just had a couple of things come up and felt we wanted to add more layers to the show so we’re still working on it. We’ll definitely be back.
I don’t have the answers because again I’m just a producer. We’re working on the programming but I think that we’ll have something coming soon and I know it’ll definitely be worth the wait.
Why would they cancel Made in Staten Island?
Staten Island residents have not been particularly thrilled with the show.
Mayor of Staten Island, Bill de Blasio, shared a petition to get the show cancelled, explaining that the MTV series was “peddling stereotypes in a shameless rating grab”.
There is also another petition on change.org that sets out to cancel the show.

Could Made in Staten Island switch networks?
Although there has been absolutely zero information about the series since it was pulled off the air, it wouldn’t be the biggest shock to see Made in Staten Island pop up elsewhere.
Cast members have always reiterated that their show is 100% not cancelled with Karina Seabrook exclusively telling Reality Ttbit that a “big announcement was coming soon”.

Made in Staten Island on… VH1?
An obvious new home for Made in Staten Island would be VH1.
Karen Gravano is the executive producer on the show and leading cast member Karina Seabrook’s mom, as well as a former castmate on VH1’s Mob Wives.
Clearly, she has some good network ties to VH1. Not only this but both channels are owned by the same media company, Viacom.
Made in Staten Island on…
The only other potential suitor we see viable is E! Entertainment, who air the same type of reality TV content.
It is extremely likely that the show would end up on any streaming platforms such as Netflix.
