VH1 has axed Hindsight, scrapping the previously announced Season 2 renewal.
The cabler has ruthlessly abandoned plans for Hindsight Season 2, despite renewing the time-travel dramedy earlier this year. Hindsight Season 2 is now officially cancelled.
VH1 explained its decision to cancel Hindsight via statement:
“Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future. 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.”
While Hindsight didn’t see this coming, the show’s cancellation is a reminder that the axe can fall at any time.
It’s certainly the end of the line for Hindsight at VH1, but will it attempt to resurrect elsewhere? It’s unlikely, but stay tuned for any potential developments.
