Laura Dern picked up a Golden Globe for her performance in the first season and the show attracted big names stars including Diane Ladd, Luke Wilson and Dermot Mulroney.
In a statement HBO said ‘It was a very difficult decision. We’re proud of the show and we look forward to working with Mike White and Laura Dern in the future.’
