Hung: Cancelled by HBO; No Season Four

HungRay Drecker may be very popular with the ladies but HBO doesn’t want a fourth season of his TV series. The pay-for-view channel has cancelled Hung after 30 episodes and three seasons on the air.

Hung stars Thomas Jane as a struggling Detroit high school baseball coach and divorced father. He resorts to male prostitution to take advantage of his natural “endowments.” The show’s cast includes Jane Adams, Anne Heche, Eddie Jemison, Rebecca Creskoff, Gregg Henry, Charlie Saxton, and Sianoa Smit-McPhee.

This past season, Hung averaged a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.02 million viewers. That’s way down from last season (1.3 in the demo with 2.46 million), which had declined from the 2009 numbers.

The defacto series finale of Hung aired on December 4th and attracted just a 0.4 rating and 930,000 viewers.

HBO has also cancelled Bored to Death and How to Make It in America but has chosen to renew Enlightened, the newest and lowest-rated of the four.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Hung has been cancelled, that there won’t be a fourth season?

    Those of you who just binged watched Hung and expect HBO to make a season 4. Figure it out, the series was cancelled nearly 4 years ago. BEFORE YOU started watching it. ***** people, get a clue.

    Seriously? I’ve been binge watching all 3 seasons of Hung and HBO cancelled season 4?! Why cancel a great show with great characters without giving the viewers any closure? Apparently it was a popular show…at least give the several million viewers some answers with a 2-hour finale! I’ll seriously consider starting another HBO series next time–think I’ll stick with Netflix!

    I love the series Hung!
    I was so disappointed to hear that it was canceled. Please bring it back for even one mire season ! I like to see Ray get with either his ex-wife wife or his pimp so he can find love and settle down– either one will be good. Thanks!
