HBO has canceled #WinningTime after two seasons. Tonight’s season finale was the very last episode of this series. We needed one more season.

Talk about a technical foul!
HBO has announced that they have canceled Winning Time: The Rise of The Lakers Dynasty after two seasons, shortly after the season 2 finale (a.k.a the series finale) aired Sunday night. And, needless to say, folks are NOT happy about it.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, co-creator Max Borenstein shared on X (formerly Twitter) that it was “Not the ending that we had in mind. But nothing but gratitude and love.”

Executive producer Salli Richardson-Whitfield (who also directed a few episodes, including the finale) echoed that sentiment on Instagram:
“When you give it everything you’ve got, you can have no regrets. I hope you enjoy the last episode of @winningtimehbo I am sure...
