HBO Changes Its Mind, Cancels A Show It Already Renewed!

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.”

That’s a very thoughtful sentiment to stars Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde and to exec producers Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese.

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…

Don’t worry Game Of Thrones fans, you’re definitely in the clear. But if we were you, we’d make sure to get on new shows like Divorce right away.
