She returned to reality television in hopes of resurrecting her brand as an entrepreneur with Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.
But the 32-year-old actress will have to look for a new venture, as both the series and her club on the Greek island of Mykonos are no more.
While MTV won’t be ordering a second season of the series, according to Page Six Tuesday, her club has also been shuttered.

The series debuted in January 2019 to strong ratings, but brutal reviews and swiftly declining viewership put the show on shaky footing.
MTV initially considering expanding the Lohan family footprint, but that move stalled out.
‘There was a renewal idea that producers hoped would perk it up for a second season,’ said a source close to the production. ‘It would be turned into a show about Lindsay and [her mother] Dina and [sister] Ali, [but] that wasn’t going to happen.’
It’s not clear if the network balked at the idea of retooling the show, or if Dina and Ali weren’t interested in joining the series.

Ironically, Lindsay Lohan’s more stable condition reportedly hurt the show in the ratings department.
The source said there ‘wasn’t enough drama’ in the show, adding, ‘They wanted ‘breakdowns.’ That’s not where [Lindsay] is at with her life anymore. Their personal business doesn’t need to be aired on television; it’s already in the papers anyway.’
Despite the claims that a second season won’t be happening, another source close to MTV said the network is still looking for ways to resuscitate the show.
But the Mean Girls star shut the door on the possibility. A rep for Lindsay said ‘she is not doing another season.’

According to Page Six, a TripAdvisor number for Lindsay’s Mykonos club wasn’t working, and another number was redirected to her nightclub in Athens, Greece.
Another source told the publication: ‘A friend had reservations [at Lohan Beach House Mykonos] this week, and the club just called and said that they will not be opening this season.’
The club was also closed in May.
‘They advertised being open for [the] summer season, specifically late May,’ wrote a commenter online. ‘We drove past and it’s literally [deserted] . . . The Lohan sign is stripped off.’

Lindsay’s first opened a nightclub in Athens in October 2016, dubbed Lohan Nightclub and financed in collaboration with her ex-business partner Dennis Papageorgiou.
In May 2018, she expanded with Lohan Beach House Mykonos, the site of her MTV reality series.
She later added a third Greek location on the island of Rhodes.
Unlike her nightclub, the ‘day clubs’ are prime spots by the sea, where guests can reserve beach umbrellas and cabanas on the beach.
The spot was surprisingly affordable, with a reserved sunbed, plus lunch, dinner, a glass of wine and three cocktails coming out to around $144, according to Refinery29.

The series revolved around Lindsay’s management skills and the bartenders and hosts she hired to manage the establishment, dubbed ‘ambassadors.’
While managing her new crew, the actress and singer dealt with rowdy, drunken employees, firing three along the way and ultimately only inviting five of the 12 to work full-time at the club.
Unless they have a job lined up at one of Lindsay’s other Greek clubs, it looks like they’re out of a job now.
