Vinyl: Cancelled by HBO; No Season Two After All

22 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

[caption id="attachment_51275" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Vinyl TV show; canceled, no season two. (Image via HBO.)[/caption]

The music has stopped. The Vinyl TV show on HBO has been cancelled. This reverses the decision HBO made to renew Vinyl for a second season, on February 18, 2016. Set in the 1970s New York City music scene, the drama stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.

The Vinyl TV series cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger, and Paul Ben-Victor. Created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen, and Terence Winter, HBO describes Vinyl as featuring, "the sex- and drug-addled music business of the early 1970s at the dawn of punk, disco and hip-hop." »

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. »

Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Thriller Logan Lucky Casts Jack Quaid

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding some wiggle room in his commitment to HBO’s acclaimed music drama VinylJack Quaid has closed a deal to join Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded Nascar drama Logan Lucky.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the up-and-comer now joins an ensemble that features Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Hillary Swank, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Alien: Covenant’s Katherine Waterston. That’s a casting call that once made room for Michael Shannon, before a scheduling clash forced the Midnight Special star to bow out of the project in favor of Guillermo del Toro’s as-yet-untitled Cold War romance.

Rooted in North Carolina, Logan Lucky is pitched as a family drama revolving around two daring brothers who stage a heist during the midst of a Nascar race. It’s a feature that has been simmering on the back-burner for some time, particularly when you factor in the ‘will he, won’t he?’ debacle that ensued before Soderbergh eventually decided to return behind the lens for the first time since Side Effects three years ago. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are on board to produce.

With an enviable ensemble in tow, Logan Lucky is expected to enter production in the coming months ahead of a theatrical release at some point next year. Currently, Soderberg is still in search of a distributor. »

Review: Vinyl: The Complete First Season

7 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

My uncle works in the music business and his heyday was back in the 1970s, so when he recognized the music industry portrayed in HBO’s Vinyl, I took that as an endorsement. Back then, I was buying a new album almost every week (or so it seemed) and was expanding my tastes thanks to the discovery of FM radio. At the time, I never really thought about the business side of music but that came later.

Viewers today can watch people struggle for a career thanks to American Idol and more recently Fox’s Empire. Vinyl, though, takes a look back when sex, drugs, and rock & roll was a lifestyle, not a catchphrase. This was an era that saw popular music splinter every few years so rock begat heavy metal, California rock, and god help us, disco. All of which got rejected simultaneously with the rise of punk and »

Can 'Vinyl' be fixed after such a disappointing first season?

17 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The year's still young, but it's safe to call HBO's Vinyl one of its biggest TV disappointments. Whether you're looking at ratings (where viewership for the initial Sunday night airing keeps coming in at well under 1 million), reviews (my lukewarm initial appraisal was kinder than many), or buzz, the show hasn't remotely been what either viewers or HBO executives might have hoped for from the team-up of Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter, who was fired as showrunner after this season wrapped. (He'll be replaced by The informant! and Bourne Ultimatum writer Scott Z. Burns, in his first real TV job.) For HBO to take such an aggressive move with Winter, who created Boardwalk Empire and was David Chase's top lieutenant for virtually all of The Sopranos, speaks both to a tenuous moment for the pay cable giant — which hasn't been able to turn a drama other than »

Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid's Son Jack Quaid Opens Up About His Parents' Split

23 March 2016 8:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid divorced in 1997 when their son Jack Quaid was only 5 years old - and the actor is getting candid about exactly what that experience was like for him. "It's one of those weird ages for your parents to get divorced," the actor, 23, said on the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast. "You're old enough to know what's going on, but young enough to be kind of naïve about it. It's a whole deal." While it's difficult for any young person to experience their parents' split, it was amplified for Quaid because for him, it happened in the spotlight. »

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, »

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.
