Sometimes when a show gets canceled, many see it coming beforehand, but that doesn’t seem to be the case regarding the end of “Reboot.”
Johnny Knoxville reacted to the announcement on Instagram, voicing his gratitude, confusion, and optimism by writing, “It’s with a heavy heart that I say that despite getting great reviews and being nominated for a critics choice award @hulu has failed to pick up Reboot even for a second season. Pretty unbelievable.” The actor went on to thank everyone from the show and also indicated there may still be hope for a Season 2, saying, “It’s not over yet though, as we tend to shop it around and hopefully it will find a home with a studio who believes in and knows how to properly support a new show as it continues to grow.”
It’s a shame that there are currently no official plans for more episodes, considering showrunner Steven Levitan already made it known that he was working on plans for Season 2. Many fans, including Knoxville, are probably hoping for a much better surprise down the road regarding the show’s ability to find a new home. Luckily, until things change, at least, there are plenty of other shows like “Reboot” for fans to enjoy.
