Controversial TV drama "Skins" has been canceled in the U.S.

MTV bosses came under fire from TV viewers and decency watchdogs when they revamped the hit British series for American audiences and debuted it in January.

A number of high profile advertisers pulled their promos over the fuss, but MTV bosses insisted they would stand by the show, which featured sex and drug-taking scenes.

But the show has now been scrapped after just one season, according to Deadline.com.

"Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn't connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped," MTV said in a statement. "We admire the work that the creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it."
