Vinyl, HBO’s 70s music scene prestige series, has officially been canceled after just one season on the network.

HBO Cancels Vinyl

In a surprise about-face, HBO has decided to cancel Vinyl, scrapping plans to move forward with a second season after meager ratings in the first season. In a statement, HBO confirmed that Vinyl was getting cut, but provided little in the way of an explanation for the decision.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl. Obviously, this was not an easy decision,” HBO said in a statement. “We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

A recent major shakeup in HBO’s upper ranks could be to blame for the renewal reversal. Just last month, HBO’s former head of comedy, Casey Bloys, replaced Michael Lombardo as the network’s programming president. Bloys, who apparently has no plans on giving True Detective a third season, could be behind the decision to say goodbye to Vinyl.

Vinyl, which was produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, starred Bobby Cannavale as a record mogul in the 70s. Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano and Juno Temple also starred.
