Variety has learnt that “Reboot,” a comedy series on Hulu, has been cancelled after just one season.
The series’ sole season, which included eight episodes, had its streaming premiere on September 20, 2022.
The plot of the programme began when Hulu decided to revive the well-known 2000s comedy “Step Right Up,” which compelled the ensemble to come together and address their unsolved issues.
The show’s original cast members Keegan-Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, and Calum Worthy starred in the series. Rachel Bloom played the millennial writer who wanted to reboot the show; Paul Reiser played its original creator; and Krista Marie Yu played the former tech executive who now works for Hulu and is in charge of overseeing the reboot.
Steve Levitan is the creator of “Reboot,” the television series he hasn’t worked on since “Modern Family” ended in 2020 after eleven seasons.
On “Reboot,” Levitan worked as the show’s executive producer and creator. Additionally serving as executive producers were Jeff Morton and Danielle Stokdyk. Levitan has an all-inclusive contract with the studio and produced “Reboot” for Hulu through 20th Television. A person with knowledge of the issue said that Levitan intends to shop the show to other outlets.
When it first premiered, the series was largely favourably received by reviewers; according to Rotten Tomatoes, the show has an 88% rating for critical acceptance. The most annoying aspect, according to Caroline Framke, is how each episode swings between parodying the “sitcommy” comedy of programmes like “Step Right Up” and fully embracing its cliches.
