Hulu Cancels Reboot After One Season

By Jessica Lerner 

Two more shows have been canceled.

Reboot and Kindred have both been axed after one season.

Reboot premiered on Hulu on Sept. 20. The series followed the dysfunctional cast of an early aughts sitcom, who much face their unresolved issues and negotiate a dramatically changed media and entertainment world after a rookie writer successfully pitches a reboot.


The series starred Keegan-Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, Calum Worthy, Rachel Bloom, Paul Reiser and Krista Marie Yu.

Creator Steve Levitan hopes to shop the series elsewhere, with Deadline reporting another streamer has inquired about scripts for a potential second season.

Kindred premiered on FX on Hulu on Dec. 13. Based on Octavia E. Butler’s novel of the same name, Kindred follows Dana, who is sent back in time to the 19th century in the Antebellum South, just as she is setting up a life in Los Angeles to be near to her aunt Denise, the only member of her family still alive.

The show starred Mallori Johnson, Micah Stock, Ryan Kwanten, Gayle Rankin, David Alexander Kaplan, Austin Smith, Sophia Brown, Sheria Irving and Eisa Davis.
