HBO Cancels Enlightened

TVLine is reporting that HBO has decided not to bring back "Enlightened" for a third season. The half-hour comedy, created by Laura Dern and Mike White, launched in October 2011 and ran for two seasons.

The show followed the life of Amy Jellicoe (Dern), a well-intentioned employee of a Southern California corporation who, after flipping out and going to anger-management rehab, emerges with a singular, if at times misguided, mission to make her company more responsible.

After presenting her research outlining Abaddonn Industries' toxic sins -- and being laughed out of the room -- she strengthened her resolve to expose the company as a polluter and a bastion of corporate greed and corruption. Having convinced co-worker Tyler (White) to let her use his IT password to retrieve incriminating emails, Season 2 began with Amy immersed in gathering evidence against Abaddonn.

The site notes that, aware of the potential cancellation, the most recent episode, "Agent of Change," was designed to serve as both a season and series finale.
