Showtime Series Canceled

Sep 16, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Showtime has pulled the plug on a series on the heels of the show’s wrapping up its first season on the pay-cable network. Deadline.com reports that the network opted not to renew “Roadies,” an hourlong comedy from Cameron Crowe, J.J. Abrams and Winnie Holzman.

“The show, set behind the scenes of a touring band, received lukewarm response from critics and viewers,” Deadline notes. “The cancellation decision comes on the heels of ‘Roadies’ ending its 10-episode freshman run on August 28.”

Crowe wrote about the cancellation on his blog, writing: “Thanks to Showtime and J.J. Abrams for the opportunity to make the one and only season of ‘Roadies,’ My mind is still spinning from the giddy highs of working with this epic cast and crew. Though we could tell a thousand more stories, this run ends with a complete ten-hour tale of music and love. Like a song that slips under your skin, or a lyric that keeps speaking to you, we hope the spell of ‘Roadies’ lingers.”

The show starred Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots.

  1. What a stinker. Sayonara!

  2. I loved the show. It had great music, a great cast and storylines.

  3. I liked it. Thanks, Cameron Crowe, for the effort. We’ll look forward to your next one.

  4. it was a good concept with good actors, but like so many of these cable shows it was too many characters, too fast. took half the season to figure out all of the relationships, and could never get invested in any of them long enough to care. i couldn’t even figure out who the band was until the 2nd to last episode.
