Showtime Cancels 'Roadies' After One Season

Showtime has opted to cancel its original scripted series Roadies after one season, it was announced today. The show wrapped its 10-episode on Sunday, August 28.

Roadies explored a tight-knit group of "roadies" as they tour the country for the fictional musical group, The Staton House Band.

The cast featured Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker and Ron White.

Oscar winner Cameron Crowe created the series. He served as executive producer with J.J. Abrams, Winnie Holzman, Bryan Burk and Len Goldstein. Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions produced.

The series debuted in June 2016 to only 499,000 total viewers counting three days of delayed viewing. The numbers were consistent throughout the series' run in the summer. The finale was seen by 500,000 total viewers in three days of delayed viewing. But those numbers were just too low to justify a renewal for a second season.

Crowe just posted a blog post discussing the cancellation of the series. You can read it here.
