Hulu has made the decision to cancel their highly praised series High Fidelity after just one season on the Disney-owned streamer.
The series’ cast, including star Zoe Kravitz, were notified of the decision earlier today. The intention was for the series to continue on with possible spinoffs but Hulu has changed those plans.
Written by Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka (Ugly Betty, State of Affairs), High Fidelity was a reimagining of the 2000 movie but told from a female point of view, with Kravitz stepping in to the role originally played by John Cusack, and centers on Rob (Kravitz), a record store owner in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn who revisits past relationships through music and pop culture, while trying to get over her one true love.the series also starred David H. Holmes, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Jake Lacy and Thomas Doherty starred in the series.
The series, which was originally being developed for Disney+, debuted in February with strong reviews. While Hulu, like other streamers, does not release traditional viewership data, High Fidelity had an impressive 86 percent and 82 percent rating, respectively, among critics and viewers on RottenTomatoes.com.
