HBO cancels ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ after 1 season – The Hollywood Reporter

the wife of the time traveler will not advance in time.

HBO has canceled the drama series, based on Audrey Niffenegger’s bestseller, after one season. Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock) adapted the novel about the romance between a woman (Rose Leslie) and a man who is out of time (Theo James).

“Although HBO is not moving forward with a second season of” the wife of the time travelerWe have been privileged to work with master storytellers Steven Moffat and [director] David Nutter,” HBO said in a statement. “We are so grateful for their passion, hard work and care in crafting this much-loved book. We also thank Theo and Rose, and the rest of our brilliant cast, for their heartfelt performances, which completely captivated the audience.”

The series received unfavorable reviews on balance; The Hollywood Reporters Angie noted that the inconsistent tone and lack of spark between the two leads the wife of the time traveler from ever quite ascending to the level of swoon-worthy.” The show’s on-air audience was quite small, clocking in at just 223,000 viewers on the same day over the course of its six-week run. (That figure excludes streaming and slow-motion viewing, where HBO series gather most of their audience.)

Moffat wrote and Nutter directed all six episodes. They co-produce with Sue Vertue, Brian Minchin and Joseph E. Iberti.

the wife of the time traveler is one of several series canceled in the past two days. It joins Fox’s DuncanvilleThe CWs Tom Swift and Paramount+’s Why kill women? being demolished.

Deadline first notified the cancellation.
