Los Angeles — The TV drama Vinyl from Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger isn't getting any more satisfaction from HBO.

The premium cable channel said on Wednesday it won't bring Vinyl back for season two, reversing its previously announced renewal.

In a statement, HBO said the decision wasn't an easy one and expressed "enormous respect" for those involved in making the series and its cast.

Scorsese and Jagger created and produced Vinyl, about the music industry in the 1970s. It starred Bobby Cannavale as a troubled record executive and also featured Ray Romano, Olivia Wilde and Jagger's son, James Jagger.

Vinyl launched with high expectations but received middling reviews. Its cancellation follows a recent turnover in HBO's top ranks: longtime programming president Michael Lombardo stepped down and was replaced by HBO executive Casey Bloys.
