The docuseries series ends after a one-season revival.
July 27, 2016
Filmmaking documentary series Project Greenlight has been cancelled at HBO. From executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, the show focused on first-time filmmakers going through the process of directing a feature film and all the challenges that come along with it.
Project Greenlight aired a total of four seasons despite originally premiering back in 2001. Its first two seasons ran on HBO before the series was moved to Bravo in 2005 for Season 3. After a 10-year absence, the show was revived for a fourth season on HBO in 2015.
While the series won't be continuing on the cable network, Damon stated in an interview that other avenues will be explored to keep the show on the air.

I love this show, but the last season was a trainwreck. They went out of their way to pick the most egotistical, narcissistic, jerk to helm their project and what they got was a muddled, unfunny mess. The Chair was a better experiment, even though they also picked a YouTuber to create an unfunny mess.

Syfy should negotiate for a season of Project Greenlight to produce one of their Saturday night movies. They could even have people vote on which person gets selected.

This is being shopped around to netflix by Damon. So it may return again. Few shows have ten year hiatus's though.

Damn! This was my all time favorite series. I was so happy when they revived it for season 4 and i am now so sad it is being cancelled again. I even have Seasons 1 & 2 on dvd. I would have bought Season 3 as well if they had released it. Such a fascinating and creative show. I loved it.
