File this latest bit of news from HBO under strange.
After renewing The Brink in July, the network has announced today that it has changed its mind and will now cancel the series.
No word on what changed HBO’s decision between this past July and now.
HBO released the following statement to Entertainment Weekly, “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season. We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.”
The series, which stars Tim Robinson and Jack Black, followed three men who were trying to prevent World War III. The Brink had very little buzz over its first season and the ratings were modest at best.
