HBO Cancels ‘Togetherness’

Current sophomore season will be the last for comedy series

HBO’s sophomore comedy series Togetherness will not return for a third season, network officials confirmed Friday.

The series, which stars Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet and Steve Zissis, all living under one roof in Los Angeles, is currently in its second season on the pay TV service.

The series, which will run its final episode April 10, is produced by Mark and Jay Duplass (who also write and direct). The current season of Togetherness is averaging 2.4 million viewers across all platforms and multiple runs, slightly below last year's 2.8 million viewer average. 

In a statement HBO said: "Although we have decided not to proceed with another season of Togetherness, we look forward to continuing our strong creative collaboration with the talented Jay and Mark Duplass.” HBO is airing the first of (at least) two seasons of animated comedy Animals, executive produced by the hyphenated Duplass brothers.

Mark Duplass posted a note to fans on Twitter saying "know that we love all of you and that we will be back soon" and signed "Your Fans, Jay, Mark and Steve."
