HBO Renews ‘Vinyl’ for Season 2

Vinyl” has been renewed for a second season at HBO. The Season 2 pickup comes after only one episode has aired, just days after the series’ debut this past Sunday.

The 1970’s sex-and-drug filled music drama premiered to some of HBO’s lowest ratings ever, but the renewal does not come as a surprise with both critical acclaim and A-list talent packed into the show both in front of and behind the camera.

Created by Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen and Terence Winter, the drama stars Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde.

Opening to just 764,000 viewers with its two-hour premiere, “Vinyl’s” debut came in lower than other HBO dramas in recent years including “The Leftovers,” “True Detective” and “The Newsroom.” Still, “Vinyl” did open on a competitive holiday weekend and with the early renewal, the premium cabler is showing a big sign of early support.

Scorsese, Jagger, Winter, Victoria Pearman, Rick Yorn, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, John Melfi, Allen Coulter and George Mastras serve as exec producers. Winter is showrunner and Jagger is the exec music producer.
