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.
