TVLine’s Cable Scorecard has been updated to reflect the news. Run debuted in April, with its seven-episode freshman season wrapping up on May 24.
“After exploring potential ways of continuing Ruby and Billy’s journey, together with showrunner Vicky Jones,” HBO said in a statement, “we have come to the decision that we will not be moving forward with a second season of Run.”
Created by Jones (Killing Eve) and executive-produced by Emmy winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Run starred Wever and Gleeson as former sweethearts Ruby and Billy, who hit the road together thanks to a pact they made years ago that they’d drop everything and travel across the country if they ever texted each other the word “RUN.” Waller-Bridge made an on-screen appearance as well as taxidermist Laurel.
