Amazon has canceled the Gael Garcia Bernal dramedy “Mozart in the Jungle” after four seasons.
The half-hour series helped establish Amazon as an awards player with its surprise Golden Globe win in 2016 for best comedy series and lead comedy actor for Bernal. The offbeat show, revolving around the life of a brash young conductor at the New York Symphony, hailed from executive producers Paul Weitz, Will Graham, Roman Coppola, and Jason Schwartzman.
“We are so proud of the four seasons we made of this show and are grateful to the cast, crew, fans and Amazon for writing this symphony with us. We hope people will keep finding the show for years to come,” the foursome said in a statement.
“Mozart” was produced by Amazon Studios.
“Mozart” is among several first-wave Amazon series that have been canceled in the past few months amid the management transition at the fast-growing video arm of the retail giant. NBC Entertainment alumnus Jennifer Salke was named president of Amazon Studios in February, taking the reins four months after her predecessor, Roy Price, was forced out following allegations of sexual harassment.
News of “Mozart’s” cancellation was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
