Wow, you don’t see this very often…
HBO has officially announced it’s cancelling its ’70s rock & roll drama Vinyl, which is actually really surprising.
Not because of the ratings — the first season reportedly cost $100 million to make but brought in less than one million viewers per episode by the end.
No, this is a surprise because they ALREADY RENEWED IT!
In a statement, the not-TV network said:
“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl. Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”
But why flip flip in the first place??
Well, it may have something to do with chief programmer Michael Lombardo‘s recent departure. His replacement Casey Bloys must have different standards for his schedule…
