Hulu has opted against a second season of its “High Fidelity” remake, canceling the Zoe Kravitz-led series after only one season.
The series, an adaption of Nick Hornsby’s novel of the same name, featured Kravitz in the lead role of Rob, who was a man in both the book and the 2000 film starring John Cusack.
“High Fidelity” was originally developed for Disney+ but was rerouted to Hulu due the show’s more mature content. “High Fidelity” was from writers Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka and is an ABC Signature Studios production.
The show also starred Jake Lacy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and David H. Holmes with recurring appearances by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rainbow Sun Francks, Nadine Malouf and Edmund Donovan.
“High Fidelity” follows Rob, a struggling record store owner in the process of self destruction and self improvement after a messy breakup. Framed as a series of diary entries — or in the case of the film and TV show, direct addresses to the audience — the story also includes glimpses into several of Rob’s friends and coworkers and their own personal and professional development. The Hulu series essentially adapted the first half of the novel — and alas, now we’ll likely never know if Rob managed to convince Clyde to give her another chance.
