HBO Cancels “Animals” After Three Seasons

That’ll do, pig.

HBO is continuing its trend of not moving animated series past three seasons as it was officially reported that Animals has been canceled after three seasons on HBO.

ANIMALS. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. For its wide-ranging third season, the genre-bending show visits a humanless, post-apocalyptic Big Apple, blending live-action and animated segments along with the show’s usual eclectic casting. From Duplass Brothers Productions, the show was created by Phil Matarese & Mike Luciano both of whom write, direct, and produce the entire series.

Our Take

Three seasons of an original animated series on HBO from two former ad execs is a pretty good run. Something tells me, this isn’t the last we’ve seen from Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano.
