'My Super Sweet 16' Is Coming Back To MTV


It's true, the show that made you question just what the hell was wrong with these kids' parents is coming back to MTV!

MTV is set to bring back "My Super Sweet 16," a show in which people 10 years younger than you get brand new luxury cars, but not the right one so they cry on TV in front of their other rich friends.

The series, which originally aired from 2005 and 2008 and gave Jennifer Lawrence her first acting credit, has just begun the casting process for the revival.

The casting site reads,

The revival just won't focus on Sweet 16s, though.

They also want to cover quinceañeras, debutant balls and debuts... but apparently not my very exclusive 28th birthday party, which will take place at my home and feature performances by me, binge-drinking until I pass out to forget age and pain.

There's a catch for the new season, though. Not only do these kids have to be well known in their school, their social media has to be on lock.

This makes perfect sense to me in the year of our Lord 2017.

When applying to appear on the show, candidates have to submit their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles.

According to the casting announcement:

I, of course, misunderstood this when I applied and thought I had to find pictures that would make my Instagram followers comment #foals.

Rich Kids of Instagram is already hit so it makes perfect sense why MTV would want to cash in on the cross-media marketing.

MTV is keeping pretty quiet about the show coming back, but we can expect plenty of Snapchats of parents "ruining" their children's lives soon.
