HBO confirmed today that Run has been cancelled after one season. The sad news comes less than two months after the comedic thriller's freshman finale, meaning its May 24 episode will now act as its series ender.

The half-hour show was well-received by both audiences and critics. While it failed to make a significant splash in the ratings, it did develop a devoted fanbase who were left wanting more after its short, seven-episode run. Its finale did bring some closure to the storyline, but it clearly left a lot of loose ends for a possible second season.

Run followed a women who lived a humdrum suburban life until she received a text with the word "RUN" sent by her college boyfriend. It was 17 years ago that the two of them made a pact that if one of them sent that text and the other replied with the same, they would drop everything, meet up at Grand Central Station and travel across the country together.
