The drama will not be back for Season 2.
April 25, 2018
It is being reported that HBO has cancelled Here and Now after just one season. The freshman series was the cable network's most-recent original drama, premiering earlier this year with a 10-episode run that concluded less than two weeks ago.
From creator Alan Ball, the series followed a progressive middle-aged couple raising four children, three of which were adopted from Colombia, Liberia, and Vietnam. When one of their kids starts seeing things that others can't, he is treated by a psychiatrist whose contemporary Muslim family highlights the disparate forces that are polarizing the culture in present-day America.
While Ball is behind previous television hits like Six Feet Under and True Blood, Here and Now was considered a miss on multiple fronts. Critics gave the show a lukewarm reception and audiences failed to tune in, resulting in low ratings over the course of its run.

I think this show was very nice. I like the way it had a cast which represents all race. It’s what America is all about beside the super natural parts I really enjoyed it.

@Marco... Westworld, Silicon Valley, Last Week Tonight, Shameless, Ray Donovan, I'm Dying Up Here (meh), Outcast -- but yeah no "good" shows :) I think Starz and Cinemax (Which is really just HBO light) are trailing. The others are doing okay though.

This show was portrayed as a show about a family then it got strange! I watched the whole season and it kept getting stranger! I like Holly Hunter and a couple of the other actresses but no it was a little off kilter for me for a what it was advertised as!!

Hbo,Showtime and Starz really don't have that many good shows anymore.

Happy to see this garbage put to pasture

Thank God. Holly Hunters character portrayal brought out thoughts of violence I didn’t know I possessed. I wanted to choke her.

Admittedly I had trouble getting through the first episode....but I gave this show a chance and am really disappointed it won't be back. As for shoving every current progressive issue down your throat? Well, maybe....maybe the writers/creators feel it needs to be rammed down your throat. Clearly most people are not getting the issues. As for the gay sex? It wasn't in every episode and hetero sex was definitely the majority. I would say gay sex was probably about 10 to 15% of the show....which is tiny. Really wanted to see where they would take this show....sadly....it's not happening.

This sucks!!! I actually really liked the show! It started off slow but picked up! It was all over the place with the storyline at times but it always came together! Sad to see it won’t be getting a second season!

When you try to shove every current progressive issue into one show, this is what you end up with. I'm a Libertarian, and I dont care who loves who, as it's not my business. What I dont care for, is when producers, writers and directors go out of their way to make a spectacle out of this stuff, simply to shock people.
