Following the cancellation of Hulu’s High Fidelity after one season, main cast member Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies, Divergent) criticized the platform via Instagram for their lack of diversity, especially with regards to women of color, according to The Hollywood Reporter. After its initial release on February 14 of this year, it was just recently announced that the show would not return for a second season, despite being critically praised.
High Fidelity follows a record-store owner, Robyn, played by Kravitz, as she deals with gaining new friendships, losing old relationships, and most of all, gentrification in her neighborhood of Brooklyn. Alongside Kravitz, the series stars Jake Lacy (The Office, Rampage), Thomas Doherty (Descendants, The Lodge), David H. Holmes (Stealing Cars), Kingsley Ben-Adir (The OA, Peaky Blinders), and Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Dolemite Is My Name, Selfie).
After the cancellation was announced, Kravitz took to Instagram to say goodbye to her co-stars and show. In an Instagram thread she wrote, “it’s cool. At least hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. oh wait,” via The Hollywood Reporter.
Her Instagram comment came as a response to fellow actress Tessa Thompson (Creed, Thor: Ragnarok, Men In Black) in which she said, “I will miss you alllllllllllll so much.” Several other well-known celebrities commented on Kravitz’s “shoutout” to her High Fidelity family, including Lena Waithe (The Chi, Master of None, Twenties) who said, “NOOOOOOO!!! I rarely find shows that genuinely impress me. This one did. I told you how much i loved this show. And I still do. This one definitely deserved another season.” Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies, Legally Blonde, The Morning Show) also commented, saying “I’m so sad. I loved this show!! The cast and the writing was [amazing].”
