During the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Wednesday, Kevin Reilly, HBO Max’s chief content officer, confirmed that Cinemax would no longer be pursuing any original programs.

Michael Quigley, executive vice president of content acquisition and strategy at HBO Max, subsequently confirmed that “we are not planning to transfer the Cinemax content to WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service.” Instead, Quigley suggested that Cinemax should remain a hub for films rather than original series.

“Many of you who loved the show (thanks) asked for information about Season 2 (and I want to wait patiently for it),” wrote Gugino. “I silently waited on the radio for the official news that Cinemax will no longer make original programs.” And now that’s the case. A very unusual and unforeseen development. Soooooo, I wanted to personally inform you that the search for a new home for #JETT has already started. “
