Even After Being Renewed For Season 2, “The Brink” Still Gets Cancelled

(via Deadline)

So are networks taking a cue from the likes of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones as no show is safe from getting the ax?

For more than few months now, geopolitical crisis comedy, The Brink, had gotten the order for a second season just before the cast’s contract for the show expired. 

Yet, even though a renewal for another season is pretty straightforward and there should be nothing to worry about on the part of the cast and crew of the show as well as the fans, it was announced today that The Brink is now cancelled at HBO.

Hopefully, this doesn’t spark a trend where shows can only be ensured of being on the air only once they actually go on air.
