canceled after the tragic death of its star. A producer though of the show pushing back now saying the decision was a mistake. They're up on a mud hole. They're definitely not breathing? No, ma'am, they're dead. Reporter: This frantic 911 calls reveals the moment budding star shain gandee was found dead in his suv, the victim of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Now a week later mtv is making the bombshell decision to cancel "buckwild." They were found dead in shain's truck, tsuv partially submerged in mud and the muffler completely covered possibly causing the poisoning. The men were mudding, driving into mud and trying to get out. A passion of shain's on the show. Like a stress reliever. Reporter: Nicknamed beggandee candy, it focuses on nine teens in west virginia and they're deeply divided over the news it will not be back. Viewers are taking to "buckwild"'s facebook page some supporting it saying "it was a good and right call. It won't be the same." Others are outraged saying "i don't think shain would want his unfortunate passing to take away from his friends." I think they acted responsibly on behalf of their shareholders. When it poses great risk with modest reward, that's a bad business to be in. Reporter: Mtv explained their decision explaining "given shain's tragic passing we felt it was not appropriate to coue without him." And now one of the show's producers is firing back. J.P. Williams who also managed gandee and seven other cast members telling "the hollywood reporter" this is a network that has shows about pregnancy and they'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child but a kid guys by accident doing what he does for a living and they cancel the show. My job is to protect these kids. This will get ugly. Filming had begun on season two and mtv is going to air a special tribute in shain's memory. That producer vows shooting the show even if that means he will have to finance it himself. That's tough. Thanks, lara.
