Will there be a “Scrubbing In” Season 2?

The fate of MTV’s travel nurse reality show “Scrubbing In” appears to be up in the air. Rumors of cancellation swirled towards the end of the show’s run, but all 10 episodes were aired.

“I’ve traveled before, many times, and this was like no other assignment,” said Fernando in the season one finale, which aired in late December 2013.

And apparently, the show’s depiction was like no other assignment the majority of nurses had ever witnessed either!

Facing a massive outcry from nurses and nursing organizations, MTV eventually responded by agreeing to move the show’s air time to a less prominent slot, re-edit several episodes, and create features that better showcased nurses as professionals, among other efforts.

The network also ran this disclaimer at the start of each episode:

“MTV has the utmost respect for the life-saving work nurses do every day. Scrubbing In follows the lives of nine traveling nurses and is not meant to be representative of all nurses or their experiences.”

Travel Nursing Blogs contacted MTV regarding the future of the show, but MTV did not return Travel Nursing Blogs’ request for comment on the show’s status.

On Twitter, fans of the shows have been bombarding the network with hashtags like #savescrubbingin and #scrubbinginseason2. On December 30 the Save Scrubbing In Twitter account tweeted, “They said they were filming but planning to cancel and they said to keep tweeting if you want it to stay.” The account appears to have been created that same day, and, along with the fan page MTV Scrubbing In (not run by MTV), is encouraging fans to voice their desire for a second season via social media.

On January 5, Scrubbing In cast member Fernando Rodriguez posted a photo to Instagram of himself and fellow cast member Heather Ambrose with the hashtags #scrubbingin and #scrubbin2. Rodriguez did not directly address comments asking if that meant the show was on for a second season.

Cast member Nikki Cirrincione’s exchange with a Twitter follower was perhaps the most definitive answer available at the time of this posting — though not the most satisfying for those wanting to hear a yes or a no. When asked “So is Scrubbing In coming back for another assignment or what?” she answered, on January 8th: “Still waiting to hear!”

Travel Nursing Blogs will stay on the case and keep you posted when we hear a definitive answer to the question: Will there be a “Scrubbing In” Season 2?

Do you want to see “Scrubbing In” back for a second season? Let us know what you think the show’s fate should be in the comments.

    Hi folks, I still haven’t heard anything conclusive. I just did some more Twitter research and as of four hours ago Nurse Nikki just said she still is not sure if there will be a season 2 and they are still waiting to hear. So, I’m just updating to say we still don’t know :)

    Honestly this show is great it shows the real life of working people… Who cares if there out partying that is what every person does after work.. When they are at work they are completely serious and responsible. I will admit I work at a hospital and it is the most wonderful experience saving lives but can be stressful so THERE SHOULD BE A SEASON 2 OF THIS SHOW NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

    I hope it comes back!!! <3 I really got into it!

  12. jairren says:

    I really hope they renew the show for more than just season 2!!! It was so much better than laguna hills or the hills or any reality TV show MTV has attempted in the last decade, with the exception of the Real World of course!

    Plus Heather Ambrose was the hottest person I’ve seen in my entire life!

    MTV canceling this show would be the worst thing they’ve done since giving Jersey Shore a show
