“After careful consideration,” according to an official statement from HBO, the television network has decided to cancel Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese’s TV series, Vinyl, after one short season.
The network had initially ordered a second season of the show immediately after the series premiere aired, which, in retrospect, may have been premature. The decision was most likely based on the fact that the first season had received both poor reviews and ratings. The series’ original showrunner, Terrence Winter, had also left the project in April and was replaced with Scott Z. Burns.
“We have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” the statement explains. “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.
Vinyl is a drama about the music industry in the 1970s, with Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger as executive producers.
