Hulu axed High Fidelity, we think it was a big mistake.
Some shocking news from Hulu and TV world released on Wednesday revealed that the streaming service had canceled its Zoë Kravitz-starring hit series High Fidelity after only one season. The sting is strong for fans of the show, which there are a lot of.
It’s a serious shame Hulu opted not to give the series another chance, but that doesn’t mean the project is 100% dead in the water. The good thing about our current entertainment era is television shows often get the chance to live and live again.
High Fidelity was already a retelling of the original 2000 movie. It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to see another streaming service save it, and here are five reasons we think that should happen.
5. It has a dedicated fanbase.
It’s hard to imagine High Fidelity not getting enough views to warrant a sophomore season. That said, in the age of streaming, numbers are very hard to suss out. Regardless, the Hulu series has a very loyal fanbase.
Since news of the cancellation surfaced, thousands of people have expressed their collective outrage via social media. Many feel like Hulu committed a serious betrayal by not giving the show another chance.
Plenty of petitions have already been made and multiple celebrities and journalists have voiced their dissent, it’s not just us regular viewers are unhappy, but Hulu has pissed off some of the higher-ups in the industry as well.
