VH1 Cancels Hindsight Season 2 Despite Renewal

at . Comments

if you were a fan of the quirky time-travel drama Hindsight drama on VH1, we have bad news.

After renewing the series in March, and despite the fact casting was still underway earlier this month, the network has decided to abandon plans to move forward after all.

The series followed the story of Rebecca, who gets sent back in time to 1995 and the day of her first wedding. If she had the chance to do it all over again, would she make the same choices? 

Hindsight

VH1 released this statement, "Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future. We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series.

As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again." 

Hindsight was surprisingly effective in the way it examined Rebecca's second chance to get it right and just how difficult it could be to balance your heart with your head, even when you thought you had all the answers.

Here's hoping someone swoops in for a last minute stay of execution!
