HBO’s ’70s rock’n’roll drama Vinyl shelved.
Screened earlier this year, HBO’s flagship ’70s rock drama Vinyl has been cancelled after just one season.
With a second season confirmed in February, HBO appear to have rewound their decision, releasing a statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
“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.”
Despite its high profile collaborators, the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger-produced series suffered from poor reviews and stuttering ratings from the off, with Terence Winter leaving the team over creative differences in April. [via Pitchfork]
