Looks like The Brink may be past the brink of no return. According to Deadline, HBO has decided not to renew the political comedy series for a second season.
The news is somewhat surprising considering the network announced a season two renewal back in July. The half-hour comedy, which featured Jack Black and Tim Robbins as political operatives bungling their way through a crisis in Pakistan, received mixed reviews and fair-to-low ratings for its first season.
No news on whether the series will continue on another network.
From HBO, in a statement to Deadline:
After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season. We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.”
What do you think? Did you watch The Brink? Would you still like to see a season two?
