Despite receiving positive feedback, the show received zero Emmy nominations, which were just announced at the end of July, but other Hulu originals such as Little Fires Everywhere, The Handmaid’s Tale, Ramy, Normal People, and The Great received a lot of recognition.
The show, which just debuted earlier this year, was an adaptation of the 1995 novel by Nick Hornby and was also made into a film in 2000. The show centers around Rob, played by Kravtiz, who owns a record store in Brooklyn. Rob uses her love for music to reminiscence on and reconnect with old lovers. The show was originally meant to be released on Disney+.
Hulu has yet to mention the show’s cancellation on their social media accounts and Kravitz is the only member of the cast and/or crew to release a statement. Fans are calling for the show to be restored, but who knows the likelihood of that happening.
Be sure to catch the show’s one and only season on Hulu.
