HBO Renews Enlightened…And Cancels A BUNCH Of Shows!

enlightened renewed by hbo

Wowsa! HBO's Laura Dern-starring show has come a loooong way since that series premiere!

Today, HBO announced plans to renew their critically popular show Enlightened for a second season…but they've decided to cancel Hung, Bored to Death, and How to Make It In America.

No HUGE surprise that these shows would get the axe! The network needs to make room for some of their new series, including Luck, Veep, Girls, Life's Too Short, and Angry Boys.

Should be interesting to see which of these new shows survive their first seasons! Judd Apatow's Girls looks pretty good to us, but he's got a bad track record with TV projects. Both Freaks and Geeks & Undeclared were cancelled after only ONE season!

What do U think? Are U pleased with HBO's renewal/cancellation plans???

    Booo! NOT Bored to Death! It is a much better show than Enlightened. Dang.

    Enlightened is a fantastic show with enormous potential. Laura Dern is neurotically flawless. Bummed about Hung, though!



  3. 3

    Noo! I really liked Hung. That's upsetting.

    Kesha? LOL

    This fucking sucks!!!! Hung was great and so was Bored to Death. I am glad Enlightened is back. Ugh! When is all this Jud Apatow shit going to disappear for good!!

    I love Bored to Death and How to Make it in America. I knew HTMIIA was going to get cancelled because it wasn't really catching on even with its 2nd season, but I thought Bored to Death would at least get renewed for one more season. I love Enlightened though and I'm very happy that got renewed!! Girls looks pretty funny but I hope it's not another disappointment like Freaks and Geeks was.

    bored to death and how to make it in america are 2 of the best shows on tv! enlightened is a bunch of crappy bullshit about a woman that goes bat shit….WHO THE FUCK WANTS TO WATH THAT!??????

    Enlightened is very good and appeals to us 40 somethings. I liked Hung the first season but it ran out of a story line pretty quickly. HTMIIA also had a great first season but kinda stalled it's second season. Bored to Death was great fun and I'm sad to see it go. I think it had a certain intellectual appeal that not everybody liked. I can't wait for Game of Thrones and I love me some True Blood.

    Bored to Death is such a good show. :(

    I am so upset that HBO canceled How to Make It In America! That show was great! Typical that a great show is canceled and replaced with a bunch of crap!

    Enlightened is awesome. Hung lost it in season 2. And Bored to death was hit and miss

    I really liked Hung! I don't get that. I have never heard of enlightened. Didn't Lora Dern think she was in a serious relationship w/ Billy bob go out of town to find his blood around Jolies neck. Is that her?

    I love this show. Mike White and Laura Dern are brilliant. This is TV/film at its best.



  14. 14

    Too bad, so sad. I saw the promo for Girl though, and it looks hilarious!

    I just started to watch this show this week, and I'm very impressed. It's very well-made on several levels, and I love how it makes you look at things in a different and yes, a more enlightened way. It doesn't say anything new, in the sense that no one else has ever pointed these things out before now, but the series remind you of it and makes you think - and feel. And because of that, it has become one of my favorites. I love the plot, storytelling, the characters and how they choose to convey their point. This show actually has a point. Imagine that.

    I loved Bored to Death : (

    OMG!!! HUNG noooooooo! im legit sad about this! why would they even do that there's so much potential for at least one more season and how to make it in america did have a really stupid finale for season 2 but it could have been bettered. BLAH



  18. 18

    Don't really care since I cannot afford any premium channels but all the best to you who enjoy the show which I hear is good.



  19. 19

    WTF!? Hung was getting good too :( Aww.. I loved How to Make it in America.



  20. 20
