Bad news: ‘Vinyl’ has been cancelled – no season 2 for HBO show

22 June 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This is just devastating. HBO have completely u-turned on their season 2 plans for the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger produced rock and roll TV series Vinyl and have cancelled it after its debut season.

The news comes via Deadline.

“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.”

Scott Z. Burns was set to replace co-creator, executive producer and showrunner Terence Winter on the second season, but the trade blog adds that the transition between the two has nothing to do with the cancellation.

The show proved a tough sell to audiences as viewing figures were less than projected and hugely disappointing for the Us cable network.

This is just awful news. The party is over. »

Vinyl cancelled by HBO

1970s-set rock and roll drama Vinyl won't return for a second season on HBO after all...

Well, this is unexpected. Back in February, the news broke that HBO had renewed its rock and roll drama Vinyl for a second season. Now, though, the network has gone back on that idea and cancelled the series altogether.

Collider reports that the initial plan had been to "retool" the show for season 2, and that showrunner Scott Z. Burns had begun working on a blueprint for Vinyl's second season. (Actual scriptwriting hadn't yet begun, it would seem.)

It doesn't seem like too much of a leap to suggest that this U-turn could be related to HBO's new chief Casey Bloys. It was his predecessor in the role - Michael Lombardo - that initially ordered season 2 of Vinyl

Bloys seems to have different ideas about how the network should be run, »

HBO Renews "Vinyl" For A Second Season

18 February 2016 8:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite a decidedly soft start both critically and ratings wise, HBO believes in its 1970s music drama "Vinyl" - renewing the freshman series after just one episode.

Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter are behind the prestige project in which Bobby Cannavale plays a record label president in the 1970s trying to save his company.

Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor also star.

There's no episode count yet for the second season. Scorsese directed the two-hour pilot which pulled in an average of 760,000 viewers.

HBO’s Vinyl – Pilot Review

14 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO’s Vinyl: Pilot episode. Reviewed by Dan Bullock, February 2016.

Created by Rich Cohen, Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter, Vinyl is the latest drama from HBO with a core that belts out a rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack, so if you’re not excited by the fervent throws of that era, then it may take you longer to put the metaphorical needle into the groove but if you’ve full-hearted love for music and film, then expect a very special experience.

This 2-hour opener is sold as a pilot episode, and could be a film within itself, which only just begins to explore the intoxicating and electrifying world of a hugely changing music and cultural scene in 1970s. Directed by Martin Scorsese, the small screen is an ample recreation stage as we focus on the Bobby Cannavale‘s Richie Finestra, the owner of American Century Records, whose love »

TV Review: ‘Vinyl’

9 February 2016 7:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Vinyl” comes outfitted with such a gaudy band and intoxicating setting – reuniting the “Boardwalk Empire” pairing of Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese, coupled with producer Mick Jagger, star Bobby Cannavale and a 1970s rock ’n’ roll backdrop – that it’s hard not to root for it. The two-hour premiere, though, is a big, messy affair, sometimes mesmerizing, occasionally aggravating, providing a taste of what’s to come while feeling too caught up in stylistic flourishes. All told, this is a huge project that perhaps only HBO could deliver. But so far, the album isn’t quite as good as the liner notes.

Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, a record executive who is introduced at his wit’s end, buying coke on the street and snorting it up with gusto. His frantic situation unleashes a series of flashbacks, not just regarding what brought him to this point, but to his early days in the music business, »
