It’s the end of the tour for Showtime’s Roadies.
The premium cabler has cancelled its Carla Gugino-Luke Wilson dramedy, TVLine has confirmed.
Showtime Networks CEO David Nevins addressed the series’ less-than-stellar start in August, saying that the series was “going according to vision” and that the network wold likely determine Roadies‘ fate “probably at the end” of its first season.
Series creator Cameron Crowe issued this statement shortly after the cancellation news broke:
Thanks to Showtime and J.J. Abrams for the opportunity to make the one and only season of Roadies. My mind is still spinning from the giddy highs of working with this epic cast and crew. Though we could tell a thousand more stories, this run ends with a complete ten-hour tale of music and love. Like a song that slips under your skin, or a lyric that keeps speaking to you, we hope the spell of “Roadies” lingers. It was life-changing experience for all of us.
So much appreciation goes out to the sensational actors and crew who lived and breathed these stories and characters with their whole hearts. We became a family, our own music-loving troupe. Thanks also to the musicians who lived so comfortably in the world of acting. And thanks to all at Bad Robot, and Winnie Holzman, great collaborators all. Big thanks to our fans for watching and cheering us on. We’ll see you soon with a new project… and many of the same actors, I’m sure. Here’s a little glimpse of the last night of filming. This is what every day felt like.
