Winning Time: The Rise Of The Lakers Dynasty – Cancelled After Just Two Seasons

Spoilers

After the second season finale aired on Sunday, Creator Max Borenstein confirmed the news on the social media platform X, formerly Twitter, expressing disappointment in the unexpected ending. The cancellation of ‘Winning Time’ comes in light of declining viewership, with the second season drawing 629,000 total viewers compared to the 901,000 for its Season 1 debut in March 2022. Notably, Season 1’s success may have been bolstered by the excitement of March Madness, aligning basketball with viewers’ interests.

HBO’s decision reflects its emphasis on viewership numbers, and this cancellation serves as a stark reminder of the network’s commitment to high ratings as a determinant of a show’s fate, even when creative storytelling is at the forefront. It’s a clear call to action for viewers to support the shows they love, as fan enthusiasm can make a vital difference in a show’s journey.
