Made for Love has been taken down by HBO Max.
The science fiction black comedy-drama inspired by Allisa Nutting’s 2017 novel of the same name has been called off following two seasons of being on air.
“We are tremendously grateful for the truly spectacular journey of these past two seasons, courtesy of Alissa Nutting, Christina Lee, Cristin, Billy, Ray, and the entire Made for Love cast and creative team – especially Zelda the talking dolphin and everyone’s favorite synthetic love interest, Diane,” a representative of HBO Max said in an interview with EW on Friday.
“Like a Gogol chip, the series will always be on our minds.”
Made for Love debuted in 2021 and told the tale of Hazel (Milioti), a wife of a billionaire tech magnate who left her husband, Byron Gogol (Billy Magnussen), later finding that he had placed a surveillance chip in her brain.
The show’s Season 2 concluded on a cliffhanger – Hazel trapping her husband’s consciousness inside his body, enabling her to helm Gogol and have Byron as a prisoner. But she is also six months pregnant with his baby.
Milioti revealed to EW that she had numerous ideas she would’ve wanted to navigate if the series were to have a third season.
“What does someone who has gone through what she’s gone through does with that much power? And she’s really unpredictable,” she stated.
“You’re always like, ‘Oh God, don’t do that.’ She can’t really communicate well, she doesn’t think before she leaps, all these things, but you still really understand why. And I wonder now that she is untethered, I would want to explore what that does to someone like Hazel.”
The first season had Lee as the executive producer, later joined by Nutting for the second season. Made for Love also featured Dan Bakkendahl, Noma Dumezweni, Caleb Foote, and Sarunas J. Jackson.
