After announcing that Vinyl had been renewed for a second season in February, it looks like HBO is changing its tune. The premium network has announced today that they are reversing their decision and opting to cancel the series and not continue with a second season.
“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” HBO said in a statement. “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.”
The series debuted with high hopes, coming from Executive Producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. However, the series debuted to soft ratings and never found a sizable audience. Vinyl starred Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor.
