Love Life was canceled by HBO Max after two seasons!
After two seasons, HBO Max has discontinued the rom-com anthology Love Life.
According to Deadline, “as part of a broader financial evaluation of the streamer’s slate that has resulted in a purging of a handful of titles at the end of the calendar year,” Love Life will also be removed from the streaming service.
The HBO Max series Minx has been canceled despite its Season 2 renewal and will also be taken off the streaming channel, as was earlier today reported.
The cancellation of HBO Max’s first original written series makes this particular piece of news crucial for the streaming service.
It comes “more than a year after the release of the Season 2 finale,” according to TV Line.
When Love Life was renewed for Season 2 in June 2020, HBO Max noted that the show had “immediately became one of the top performers on the streaming platform out of all accessible material.”
Love Life is described as “being about the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we’re with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone permanently,” in the show’s logline.
Love Each ten-episode season of Life chronicled a different protagonist’s search for love due to the premise of the show. Darby Carter, played by Anna Kendrick in Season 1, and Marcus Watkins, played by William Jackson Harper in Season 2.
Love LifeSeason 2 wrapped up in November 2021, and according to its logline, it followed Marcus “when his marriage abruptly implodes,” forcing him to “rebuild his life brick by brick, hoping to find a love that will last, once and for all.”
“Love Life‘s first season is ultimately a tale of personal perseverance, human connection, and how those we love to change our lives,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original programming, HBO Max, upon the show’s renewal for Season 2.
In order to produce television that resonates, Aubrey continued, “I can see why fans are responding with such immense enthusiasm, and my creative team and I look forward to continuing our collaboration with this incredible group of executive producers and Lionsgate.”
“With the wonderful team at HBO Max and Lionsgate Television, we are beyond thrilled to make another season of Love Life and have the chance to explore a whole new protagonist. Sam Boyd, a co-showrunner and executive producer, and Bridget Bedard, a co-showrunner and executive producer, said, “If only as a method to keep processing our own romantic injuries.”
Star of Season 1 Anna Kendrick also made a statement regarding the continuation of Season 2. Working on Love Life with everyone and with those who shaped Darby and gave life to her tale has been a labor of love. I’m eager to work with the team once more on a fresh character and their journey.
Co-showrunners Rachelle Williams, Bridget Bedard, and Sam Boyd were responsible for Season 2. Along with Dan Magnante, William Jackson Harper, Paul Feig, and Anna Kendrick, Boyd, Bedard, and Williams serve as executive producers. The show was made by Lionsgate Television and Feigco Entertainment.
The date on which HBO Max will remove both seasons of Love Life from their library has not yet been made official.
