HBO has decided not to move forward with the second season of ‘70s musical drama Vinyl.
The cancellation comes after showrunner Terence Winter’s departure from the show, which failed to get good ratings in its debut season, The Hollywood Reporter 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,” HBO said on Wednesday in a statement.
Winter, best known for Boardwalk Empire, was let go after overseeing the long-in-the-works drama from executive producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger.
Vinyl, which starred Bobby Cannavale as a 1970s record executive trying to save his company, opened to disappointing ratings for cable network.
