‘High Fidelity’ canceled by Hulu after one season


“High Fidelity” with Zoe Kravitz was canceled by Hulu after one season, Variety confirmed.The series was a modern, sexist reimagining of the 2000 film starring John Cusack, with Kravitz playing his role. She played the role of Rob, a pop culture obsessed owner of a record store. Jake Lacy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and David H. Holmes completed the cast for the critically acclaimed Lone Season.

The television series was created by Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka, who have produced with Kravitz and Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio.

Originally commissioned as a series over two years ago, “High Fidelity” was initially developed as a Disney Plus show. However, it moved to Hulu in April 2019 after Disney took over the competing streaming site. The series’ adult themes made it a better choice for Hulu than the typical PG-focused, family-friendly shows on Disney Plus.

“High Fidelity” ran in the Kravitz family; his mother Lisa Bonet starred alongside Cusack in the film version, playing Marie DeSalle, Rob de Cusack’s ex-girlfriend.

In June, Kravitz said Variety that she would love to do a second season, claiming the show had more to explore with its characters and storylines, but she hadn’t heard of any decisions to renew the show.

“I think the show has a lot of potential,” she said. “I think there is a lot more growth to do for everyone and a lot more difficulty getting started. There are a lot of places we could go and I would love to go.
