HBO cancel Mick Jagger’s ‘Vinyl’

The show based on the 1970s music industry ran for just one season

HBO have cancelled Mick Jagger‘s TV series Vinyl.

The show, which was based on the music industry in 1970s New York, was executive produced by Jagger and Martin Scorsese.

The network had ordered a second series of the programme after only the first episode of season one had aired.


As Spin reports, HBO said in a statement about the u-turn: “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.”

The first season of the show received poor reviews and ratings. Showrunner Terrence Winter left the project in April, with replacement Scott Z. Burns said to be moving things in a “new direction”.
