HBO’s ‘Enlightened’ Cancelled After Two Seasons

HBO Enlightened Cancelled
HBO

HBO’s Laura Dern-fronted spiritual dramedy ‘Enlightened‘ may have recently wrapped up its most critically-adored season to date, but enlightenment can’t help you conjure up needed ratings. The pay-cable network has officially announced that it will pass on a third season of Amy Jellicoe’s corporate adventures, effectively cancelling the series. Find out what HBO has to say about cancelling ‘Enlightened’ inside!

HBO has been on a roll of late, finishing out a much-publicized second season of ‘Girls‘ this past Sunday and preparing buzz-worthy premieres of ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 3, ‘Veep‘ season 2, ‘Family Tree‘ and others, but it seems the pay-cable network has suffered its first major setback of the year. HBO has officially cancelled the Mike White/Laura Dern-created comedy ‘Enlightened,’ which wrapped up its second season several weeks ago.

“It was a very difficult decision,” said the network in a statement. “We’ve decided not to continue ‘Enlightened’ for a third season. We’re proud of the show and we look forward to working with Mike White and Laura Dern in the future.” For those unfamiliar with the series, ‘Enlightened’ followed Amy Jellicoe (Dern), a self-destructive executive, who undergoes a spiritual and professional awakening, attempts to get her life together. Dern previously won a Golden Globe for the role in 2012.

Well, what say you? Will you miss ‘Enlightened,’ or had the series come far enough? Do we hear a Kickstarter campaign in the future? Give us your thoughts on ‘Enlightenment’s cancellation in the comments!
