“The Time Traveler’s Wife” has been canceled by HBO after one season. The series from Steven Moffat and David Nutter, which starred Rose Leslie and Theo James, was based on the book of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger.

It premiered in May, with the finale airing June 19. All six episodes were directed by Nutter and written by former “Doctor Who” showrunner Moffat. Desmin Borges and Natasha Lopez  costarred.

“Though HBO will not be moving forward with a second season of ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife,’ it was our privilege to partner with master storytellers Steven Moffat and David Nutter,” an HBO spokesperson said in a statement shared with TheWrap. “We are so grateful for their passion, hard work and care for adapting this beloved book. We also thank Theo and Rose, and the rest of our brilliant cast for their heartfelt performances, which completely captivated audiences.”

The series was also executive produced by Sue Vertue, Brian Minchin, and Joseph E. Iberti and produced by Hartswood Films in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Niffenegger’s novel about a man with a genetic disorder who unpredictably appears and disappears as he travels through time, was previously made into a 2009 feature film starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams.
