While you scramble to work on that beach bod, make sure your DVR is in top shape too because MTV announced its summer schedule on Thursday (April 24) and it is seriously ripped.
In addition to new shows “Finding Carter” and “Snack-Off” and the return of “Teen Wolf” and “Ridiculousness,” one of the new series announced was the documentary “9 Days and Nights.” The subject of the first 60-minute episode in June is Ed Sheeran, with special appearances from pal Taylor Swift and producer Pharrell Williams. The show is slated to debut on June 10 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
The announcement of the new shows was hosted by Nicole Byer of the hit series “Girl Code,” MTV2′s Andrew Schulz and Charlamagne of “Guy Code,” and featured phenomenal performances by Bastille, playing their hit “Pompeii.” In addition, Rita Ora introduced Paramore, who performed “Still Into You” and “Ain’t It Fun.”
Grammy Award-winning EDM star and 2014 MTV Movie Awards performer Zedd also took the stage to get the crowd moving with “Clarity” and was joined onstage by Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams for an epic version of their song “Stay the Night.”
The event also featured appearances by MTV on-air talent including Victoria Justice debuting a first-look at her new MTV series “Eye Candy.”
The full summer schedule:
»“Teen Wolf” — Season four of the series will debut on June 23 (10 p.m. ET/PT) and finds Scott, Stiles, Lydia and Kira returning for a new semester with more human than supernatural concerns.
