HBO Cancels Critically-Acclaimed “Enlightened”

By  | 

HBO’s premium model allows it to look beyond ratings in certain situations, but the leniency was apparently not sufficient to save “Enlightened.”

News broke this week that the critically-acclaimed series will not return for a third season.

“It was a very difficult decision,” said HBO. “We’re proud of the show and we look forward to working with Mike White and Laura Dern in the future.”
