An MTV series has been canceled and is looking for a new network home, reports Deadline.com. The show is the freshman comedy program "I Just Want My Pants Back."

One reason the show wasn’t renewed is MTV’s large inventory, which includes returning shows such as "Teen Wolf" and new programs including "Inbetweeners," the story says.

"Pants" focuses on a 22-year-old man and his friends dealing with romance and becoming an adults. The show, which was critically well-received, is from Doug Liman and Dave Bartis’ Hypnotic and Universal Cable Prods. It’s based on the book by David Rosen.

In a statement, MTV said: “We’re proud to have aired ‘I Just Want My Pants Back,’ with its impressive creative pedigree and talented group of actors. Many factors go in to determining renewals, however, and ultimately, we decided not to move forward with an additional season of ‘Pants.’”

The series opened to strong ratings but saw them erode during its run, the story points out.
