It is being reported that HBO has cancelled Avenue 5 after two seasons. The news comes two months after the space comedy wrapped its sophomore run. Its two seasons garnered a generally positive critical reception, though it failed to draw a significant audience.

Set 40 years in the future, the half-hour series follows a luxury space cruise ship during a time when space tourism is all the rage. Captain Ryan Clark, played by Hugh Laurie, and his crew must work to deal with disgruntled passengers, unexpected events, and each other, after experiencing technical difficulties onboard.
