Project Greenlight Cancelled at HBO

Project Greenlight Cancelled

Project Greenlight is no longer living up to its name.

HBO has chosen not to renew Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s filmmaking competition series for Season 5, our sister site Variety reports.

“When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us,” HBO said in a statement. “We are proud of the show and were pleased with its run throughout the years.”

Damon broke the news of the cancellation in an interview with the Associated Press: “I’m not one to question [their programming]. They do such a great job. But we have to take it out again,” he said, indicating that the show will be shopped to other outlets.

It wouldn’t be the first time the program has moved homes. After running for two seasons on HBO from 2001-2003, Project Greenlight moved to Bravo in 2005, before returning to HBO last year.
