HBO Renews ‘Vinyl’ After Just One Episode

Renewal Based on the Caliber Involved and Not the Debut Ratings

Despite just 764,000 viewers and a 0.2 rating for its two-hour series premiere, HBO has issued a second season renewal to period drama “Vinyl,” with an unspecified number of new episodes. From Mick Jagger, Martin Scorses, Rich Cohen and Terrence Winter, and focused on the 1970’s sex-and-drug filled music scene, “Vinyl” stars Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, P.J. Byrne, Juno Temple, Ato Essandoh, Brigitte Sorenson and Ray Romano.

Ten episodes were order for the first season.
