Yay, bumped for more hate-watching bullshit.
That’s not fair, I was not “hate-watching”. This is a forum where we discuss shows in contention for the Emmy, and this show was a major HBO push. Not to mention that it has really good reviews (I’m really struggling to see why though) and despite my previous claim that I was excited about a potential trainwreck, I do really love the leads and would have liked to see the show improve as it went along, or even to pull me in at the last minute. This show didn’t do that. I don’t think I should have to justify why I watch what I watch to internet strangers but here I am anyway.
Finished the season. Wever’s my MVP but truthfully I could care less if it got renewed or if it got any awards recognition.FYC - Drama

“Sources note HBO executives and Jones, who was optimistic for a second season, made several attempts to find a path forward for Run but ultimately couldn’t agree on a path forward.”

It ended in a way that didn’t really require a second season, even though Jones had ideas. As it stands, it works perfectly well as a standalone. It should have always been conceptualized, planned, and marketed as a limited series.
I think it would’ve had better Emmy success in the Limited Series categories, too, even with the reduced number of slots. This announcement coming smack in the middle of Emmy voting doesn’t bode well for its already diminished prospects.

This has become one of the reasons I love HBO! Jk (or am I?)

I really hated the ending to this. The plot didn’t go anywhere so it was meh for the most part then the ending made me feel like I wasted my time watching this at all. Bummed because I love Phoebe, Merit, and Dohmnall in pretty much everything else I’ve seen them in.July 10, 2020 at 6:28 pm #1203580607
I love Wever but thank god. Her time will be better spent doing a different project. I just hope that she continues to get lead roles worthy of her talent.July 10, 2020 at 11:37 pm #1203580857
Unsurprised by the cancellation, surprised by the timing of the announcement during Emmy voting.July 11, 2020 at 12:08 am #1203580866
I feel like the series as a whole worked better as a single series show, however that finale just did not make sense at all. I didn’t hate the show, nor did I love the show. I do however hope Wever gets nominated
