Word is out that The Girls on the Bus has been cancelled by Max after one season. The news comes two weeks after the drama wrapped its 10-episode freshman run, which ultimately garnered a mixed critical reception.

"While Max will not be moving forward with a second season of The Girls on the Bus, we are grateful to have partnered with immensely talented Amy Chozick, Julie Plec, Rina Mimoun, as well as the teams at Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television," wrote the streamer in a statement. "We are so proud of this powerful story of found family and the celebration of journalism, in all its forms. We thank them and our unrivaled cast for all their incredible work and collaboration."

The series starred Melissa Benoist as journalist Sadie McCarthy, who romanticizes a bygone era of campaign reporting and decides to scrap her whole life for a shot at covering a presidential candidate for a paper of record. Sadie joins the bus and forms a bond with three female competitors. Despite their differences, the women become a found family with a front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town - the battle for the White House.
