Hulu just canceled a popular series after it just enjoyed one season on the streaming service. This has become a massive problem for people who subscribe to Netflix. Now, it has not spread to other streamers like Paramount+, HBO Max, and now Hulu.
Here is the show that Hulu canceled and why it was so disappointing.
Hulu cancels popular show after one season
It seems like more and more popular shows are getting canceled by streaming services, and Hulu just added another one to the canceled shows list. Hulu has canceled Reboot after just one season. For those who haven’t seen it, Reboot is a meta-comedy about the making of a 2000s sitcom.
Keegan-Michael Key and Judy Greer portray execs and the main stars of the fictional series, Step Right Up. Johnny Knoxville, Calum Worthy, and Krista Marie Yu also star. The show was as meta as they come because the fictional show within the show was for Hulu itself. However, the main core of the series was the relationship between the father-daughter showrunner team for Step Right Up, played by Rachel Bloom and Paul Reiser
The first season ended with Reiser’s Gordon resigning from the show. However, the team behind Reboot had big plans for a second season.
“There were a lot of balls in the air during the finale, and the first thing to do is to make sure that those all land in a compelling and entertaining way,” showrunner Steve Levitan (Modern Family) told EW. He also said the show has a lot to explore and the second season would move on to the release of the fictional series.
Now, that will never happen on Hulu. However, it sounds like other outlets have shown interest in bringing Reboot over, based on the scripts for the planned Season 2.
What else has been canceled recently?
Reboot was just one of many shows that streaming services have canceled already in 2023. Peacock canceled Vampire Academy after just one season. HBO Max canceled DC Comics shows Titans and Doom Patrol, with both shows getting one last season each. The DC cancelations were part of the new future plans for DC properties.
Showtime just merged with Paramount+ and canceled three shows as a result. The shows include the Showtime sequel to the movie American Gigolo, starring Jon Bernthal. This could lead to Bernthal returning to Marvel as Punisher once again.
Paramount+ with Showtime also canceled the vampire series Let the Right One In, based on the Swedish movie and American remake. Finally, Showtime chose not to air Three Women, despite filming already being completed. Much like Hulu’s Reboot, Showtime is giving that last show a chance to live on at another outlet.
