AMC may have some upcoming The Walking Dead Universe and Interview with the Vampire season 2 material in the new year but that isn’t the case with some of their other television shows. Joining in the barrage of television show cancelations across several streaming platforms this year is AMC’s Lucky Hank.
Starring Bob Odenkirk of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, Lucky Hank will unfortunately not get renewed for season 2. The cast, which included Mireille Enos, Cedric Yarbrough, Oscar Nuñez and Diedrich Bader came together and told a rather interesting live action adaptation of Richard Russo’s Straight Man.
When it came to Rotten Tomatoes, the critics and audiences seemed a little divided. While the Average Audience Score was 67%, the Average Tomatometer score was nearly 100%, coming in at 93%.
Like all television shows that combine relatability with some humor, there can be a rather large disconnect with audiences. Some might feel seen and share a laugh or two at how this show takes some commonplace things and brings it to the forefront.

But others might find it too relatable and thus feel the need to watch something as far removed from reality as possible. Like Netflix’s One Piece for instance.
All the same it’s a shame to see this Odenkirk show not survive 2023’s long list of cancelations. We look forward to his next film or television show.
Closing this out we’re curious as to what you think. Were you expecting Lucky Hank to be a multiple season show?
Why do you think it was canceled alongside AMC’s Demascus and Invitation to a Bonfire? If you’d like to relive Odenkirk’s incredible performance, you can watch Lucky Hank season 1 on AMC Plus.
