HBO show Luck was filming season 2 – yet it has been cancelled. Tragic.
I was truly disappointed when the news broke about the 3rd horse death and the cancellation of Luck. It got a lot of press but every mention was short on details. This interview revealed a lot of what I was wondering about.
The one thing I don’t understand and is cause for speculation about the show having low ratings or being ready for cancellation anyways – was the fact that this show could have continued with less of an emphassis on the horses racing.
Sure – I appreciated the horses and that footage was awesome – but for me it was more about the characters. So many of them were weaved in and out of the story and as we are waiting for the season finale (epsiode 9) it is saddening we’ll never have a chance to see them fully developed.
If the horses were less up front – the show could have been just as good. You really should continue with this project as it was just starting to be incredible and one of the best shows on tv.
I hope by some miracle that Luck on HBO comes back for season 2.
