Vinyl,the music-business drama set in the early 1970s, will get a second season at HBO. The network made the announcement on Thursday, less than a week after the series premiere.
The saga, created by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese follows Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) as he tries to save his fictional label, American Century Records, without destroying everything and everyone around him.
Despite its marquee names and intoxicating blend of sex, drugs and rock & roll (and punk and disco too), the show hasn't drawn big numbers — an average of just 760,000 viewers in its two hour premiere. Still, HBO has doubled down on the series, especially considering the talent involved with the project.
