Despite its title, Forever was not long for this world. The critically acclaimed comedy starring Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph, which Vulture’s Jen Chaney named as one of the best TV shows of 2018, has been canceled by Amazon after just one season, reports Deadline. Created by Alan Yang (Master of None) and Matt Hubbard (30 Rock), the twisty eight-episode series centered around a married couple, June (Rudoph) and Oscar (Armisen), stuck in mundane routines. To explain more about the plot would give too much away, but if the show were to be somehow revived, that wouldn’t be June and Oscar’s first brush with the afterlife.
In addition to canceling Forever, Amazon is also ending the horror-anthology series Lore after two seasons. Lore was based on the nonfiction scary-stories podcast of the same name.
