HBO Max Cancels 'Made For Love' After 2 Seasons

Made for Love is done after two seasons at HBO Max.

The series is the latest HBO Max cancellation following news that a lot of shows would not be returning, including Raised By Wolves being axed and The Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco revealing that show would likely not get a second season. The streamer is believed to be cutting some shows amid the Warner Bros. Discovery merger. It was also produced by Paramount Television Studios.

Led by Cristin Milloti, the series also starred Billy Magnussen, Ray Romano, Dan Bakkendahl, Noma Dumezweni, Caleb Foote, Sarunas J. Jackson and Kym Whitley.

“We are tremendously grateful for the truly spectacular journey of these past two seasons, courtesy of Alissa Nutting, Christina Lee, Cristin, Billy, Ray and the entire ‘Made for Love’ cast and creative team – especially Zelda the talking dolphin and everyone’s favorite synthetic love interest, Diane,” representatives for HBO Max said in an exclusive statement to Variety. “Like a Gogol chip, the series will always be on our minds.”

Here's the description of both the series and season 2:

Based on the novel by Alissa Nutting, MADE FOR LOVE is a poignantly humorous story of modern love and divorce. Season One followed Hazel Green (Cristin Milioti), a thirty-something woman on the run after ten years in a suffocating marriage to tech billionaire Byron Gogol (Billy Magnussen), as smart as he is insufferable. After discovering that her husband implanted a monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her and know her “emotional data,” Hazel fled to her desert hometown to take refuge with her outcast father Herbert (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane. In the second season, in order to save her father’s life, Hazel returns to the Hub, Byron’s high-tech palace. But once inside, she and Byron both become ensnared by Gogol’s newest revolutionary (and dangerous) technology.

The series was executive produced by Christina Lee, Alissa Nutting, Patrick Somerville, Dean Bakopoulos, Liza Chasin, Daisy Mayer and SJ Clarkson. Alissa Nutting joined first season showrunner Christina Lee to co-run season 2.
