High Fidelity that stars Zoë Kravitz has been removed from Hulu. The show only aired for one season when the cancelation notice was handed out.
High Fidelity is a drama that was created based on the Nick Hornby novel that was published in 1995. It was also adapted into a movie in 2000, and it starred John Cusack.
The cancelation announcement
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu confirmed on Wednesday that the show would not be renewed for a second season.
It was revealed that Disney originally ordered for the American romantic comedy show to be a series. This was two years ago when the company acquired Hulu and Disney Plus streaming was still being set up.
Later, it was decided that High Fidelity will only be streamed via Hulu. This was because it produces adult-themed stories that are not suitable for Disney Plus’ PG rating.
Critics praised the drama that was created by Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka, but sadly, it can’t continue anymore. This was also co-produced by Kravitz, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, and Scott Rosenberg.
Hopes for the second season of High Fidelity
As High Fidelity has a decent number of followers and it gained good feedback, Kravitz hoped that they would get a renewal order.
She wanted to produce a second season and said they still have many more stories to tell. If turned into a series, they can further explore the characters and storylines, but Hulu has to renew the show first.
“I think the show has a lot of potentials,” she told Variety in an interview that took place in June. “I think there’s a lot more growing to do for everybody and a lot more trouble to get into. There’s a lot of places we could go and I would love to go there.”
Zoë Kravitz’s response to Hulu’s decision not to renew the show
The lead star and executive producer of High Fidelity, Zoë Kravitz, expressed sadness and disappointment over the cancelation of their drama.
On Aug. 6 via social media, she also thanked her colleagues, staff, and fans who followed their show since day one. In her post, she uploaded several photos of the cast when they were filming and added the #BreakupsSuck hashtag in her caption.
“I wanna give a shout out to my #HighFidelity family,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for all the love and heart you put into this show. I’m in awe of all of you. And thank you to everyone who watched, loved and supported us.”
