“Project Greenlight” has not been renewed for another season by HBO, TheWrap has learned.

The docu-series, which was revived by HBO for a fourth season last year, will not return to the network for Season 5, but producer Matt Damon said the show will be shopped elsewhere.

“I really liked it and thought that the show went great,” the “Jason Bourne” star told the Associated Press. “I’m not one to question [their programming]. They do such a great job. But we have to take it out again.”

“There are places where I think we could do really well,” he said of the show he co-produced with Ben Affleck, Sean Bailey and Chris Moore through LivePlanet, suggesting streaming platforms like Amazon and Netflix as possible new homes for the show.

“When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us. We are proud of the show and were pleased with its run throughout the years,” HBO said in a statement.

The fourth season of “Project Greenlight,” which centered on the production of director Jason Mann’s “The Leisure Class,” was marked by controversy surrounding comments made by Damon about diversity during the season premiere.
