In March, VH1 renewed their low-rated comedy Hindsight for a second season. Now, the cable channel is reversing their decision and have cancelled the show instead. The move is likely due to a change in management at VH1.
“Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future,” VH1 said in a statement to Deadline. “We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again.”
Word is that the producers of Hindsight are looking for a new home for the series and are having converations with streaming services and othe platforms.
What do you think? Do you like the Hindsight series? Do you think that VH1 should have cancelled it? Would you watch season two elsewhere?
