No. of Season: 1
Run won’t be returning for a second season after HBO cancelled the romantic comedy thriller in July after one season. Created by Vicky Jones, Run stars Merritt Weaver and Domhall Gleeson as former college sweethearts who reunite in Grand Central Station and travel across America together. Seventeen years earlier, they promised that if either one of them texted the word “RUN” and the other replied with the same, they would drop everything and board a cross-country train.
“After exploring potential ways of continuing Ruby and Billy’s journey, together with showrunner Vicky Jones, we have come to the decision that we will not be moving forward with a second season of Run,” HBO said in a statement, announcing the show’s cancellation.
Run is one of HBO’s lowest-rated scripted series in 2020, so the network’s decision to pull the plug on the series wasn’t surprising at all. The show’s freshman run only averaged a 0.07 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 232,000 viewers.
