After previously being picked up for another season, a drama series has received word that it won’t be coming back after all. Deadline.com reports that VH1 reversed the decision it made in March to pick up season two of “Hindsight.”
The show has been part of a push by the cable channel into scripted originals. It was initially picked up after its first-season finale back in March even though its ratings had been modest.
“The series drew 367,000 viewers for the January opener despite a strong lead-in from hit ‘Mob Wives,'” Deadline notes. “Its season finale averaged 249,000 viewers.”
Created by Emily Fox, the show starred Laura Ramsey as a woman transported 20 years back in time and given the chance to undo her mistakes.
In a statement given to Deadline, VH1 said: “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.”
