ISTANBUL – There have been no further protests against the cancellation of HBO’s Vinyl after only one season.
The drama series Vinyl was cancelled after only one season, but feared demonstrations have failed to materialize. The show starred Bobby Carnevale as a record label executive in the 1970s. It was produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger and run by Terrence Winter. Despite high production values, big name talent and incessant music, the show failed to find an audience and although HBO announced it was to make a second season, it u-turned and definitively cancelled the show.
A spokesperson for HBO told the Studio Exec:
We were very worried that we were going to get all sorts of blowback. Fan petitions, street demonstrations and hate mail. But none of that happened. In fact, it’s been really quiet.
Rumors that the failed coup in Turkey was partly caused by the cancellation of the show were later proven to be unfounded.
