Word is out that HBO Max has cancelled Generation after just one season. The sad news comes two months after the dramedy wrapped its 16-episode freshman run, which ultimately garnered a mixed reception from critics.

The move makes Generation the first scripted original series to be cancelled by the streaming service, which launched in May of last year.

Generation is a dark dramedy that follows a diverse group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality puts deeply established beliefs about life, love, and family to the test in their conservative community.
