HBO has just announced they’ve renewed the Laura Dern series Ã¢â¬ÅEnlightenedÃ¢â¬Â for a second season, but gave three other shows the boot.
They are ditching ‘Hung’, ‘Bored to Death’, and ‘How to Make it in America’.
Ã¢â¬ÅHungÃ¢â¬Â (starring Thomas Jane) and Ã¢â¬ÅBoredÃ¢â¬Â (with Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis) ran for three seasons apiece, while Ã¢â¬ÅAmericaÃ¢â¬Â had two.
Last week, Dern earned a Golden Globe nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy for her work on Ã¢â¬ÅEnlightened.Ã¢â¬Â
I’ve been telling everyone who will listen that ‘Enlightened’ is AMAZING. Really a great, great show. I really liked ‘Bored to Death’ and ‘HTMIIA’, but I can see why HBO canceled them. They weren’t awesome…. but they weren’t terrible either. Plus – Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis in a show together? Yes please!
PS: Poor Brian Greenberg….that kid can’t catch a break!
But I’m glad ‘Enlightened’ is coming back. You guys need to check it out OnDemand if you can. It’s great!
