HBO Pulls The Plug on Season 2 Of 'Vinyl'
June 22, 2016 at 12:31 PM (PT)
After initially renewing it for a second season, HBO has changed direction and decided not to go ahead with the roundly criticized "Vinyl," its series from MARTIN SCORSESE and MICK JAGGER that followed the adventures of the record industry in the '70s.
HBO's statement read: "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."
In APRIL, show runner TERENCE WINTER was let go. The two-hour series premiere averaged just 760,000 viewers in live-plus-same-day numbers. The two-hour series opener is said to have cost about $30 million and the first season $100 million.
SHOWTIME is about to premiere its own rock 'n' roll series, CAMERON CROWE's "Roadies," this SUNDAY, JUNE 26th, and advance word on that has been mixed.
