TV Hulu Cancels "High Fidelity"

"High Fidelity" Cancelled at Hulu after One Season
by Nellie Andreeva
August 5, 2020



"High Fidelity", starring and executive produced by Zoë Kravitz, will not be getting a second season on Hulu.

The show, which has been well received by critics and is headlined by a big star with a massive following in Kravitz, had internal support at Hulu, whose brass took extra time to mull a potential renewal, with sibling ABC Signature extending the options on the cast by a month to accommodate that.

In the end, the streamer opted not to proceed with a second season.

Zoë Kravitz Reacts to "High Fidelity's" Cancellation: "Breakups Suck"
by Ryan Schwartz
August 6, 2020



"High Fidelity" star Zoë Kravitz is mourning the demise of her Hulu reboot, which was cancelled Wednesday after one season.

Kravitz took to Instagram on Wednesday night to express gratitude for her fellow castmates, while also acknowledging that, yeah, breakups suck.



I wanna give a shout out to my #HighFidelity family,’ she wrote, alongside a stream of photos featuring co-stars David H. Holmes, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Jake Lacy. “Thank you for all the love and heart you put into this show. I’m in awe of all of you. And thank you to everyone who watched, loved and supported us.

Her statement concluded with a peace sign emoji and the hashtag #BreakupsSuck.

High Fidelity's cancelation is devastating because it served as pandemic escapism

The Zoë Kravitz-led gender-flipped reimagining of Nick Hornby’s book and John Cusack 2000 movie, which was canceled after one season this week, premiered on Valentine's Day, a month before the coronavirus shutdown. Watching High Fidelity in quarantine amid Zoom hangouts "was like a broadcast from an alternate timeline where impromptu meetups at dive bars were still happening," says Angela Watercutter. "In many ways, High Fidelity is just one of many shows and movies that have come along to fill the void during quarantine," says Watercutter. "Everything from Twister to Tiger King has proven to be a comfort, or at least a distraction, as people while away the hours. Hulu’s show tapped into a certain kind of layabout, day-drinking malaise that is currently missing from a lot of people’s summers." Watercutter adds: "Of course, the thing that makes High Fidelity great—the hangout vibes, the hours spent in record stores and friends’ apartments—is the same thing that likely makes it hard to produce. Hollywood is slowly figuring out how to make TV shows during a pandemic (::waves at Tyler Perry:, but on High Fidelity there was a fair amount of hugs, making out, close talking—all things that break the rules of social distancing. Sure, Hulu could’ve bought some blow-up dolls, but that definitely would’ve chipped away at the show’s authenticity. Still, Rob (Kravitz) and her coterie deserved more time. We would’ve waited."
