High Fidelity season 2, we never knew you. The Zoe Kravitz-starring Hulu series has been canceled and we're playing our saddest records in tribute. 

The 10-episode show, which is based on the 1995 Nick Hornby novel of the same name, completely charmed us with its cool cover, lovelorn lead and sublime soundtrack. In other words, we wanted more.

Here are a bunch of things we'll never find out: Does Rob reconnect with nice guy Clyde? Or rockstar Liam? How about Simon and Blake? And does Cherise make a record? 

Here’s everything else we know about High Fidelity season 2.

High Fidelity season 2: No release date

Unfortunately, Hulu canceled High Fidelity season 2 on August 5. 

The first season was released on February 14, 2020, in the blissful Before Times when we could have nice things.

High Fidelity season 2 cast: Who’s in it?

High Fidelity season 2 would've seen the return of the first season’s cast.  That includes record store-owner Rob (Zoe Kravitz) and best friends Simon (David H. Holmes) and Cherise (Da’Vine Joy Randolph). Plus, there was Rob’s budding love interest Clyde (Jake Lacy) and big brother Jackson (Rainbow Francks), too. 

Yeah, they’ve got chemistry. 🧡 #HighFidelity High Fidelity
