'Enlightened' came to 'a natural resting place,' HBO says
"I think the most important element to not going forward was we felt creatively, the story of Amy Jellicoe [ Laura Dern] had come to a natural resting place," Lombardo says. "We thought it was best to end it where we did. It wasn't a financial decision per se, it was about choices and a creative decision about it had worked beautifully. It felt we should end where we ended it."
Lombardo does acknowledge, though, that ratings were a factor. "Some of it was about seeing a show that didn't grow in its second year," he says. "It had not as robust ratings as we had hoped for, because we think it's a beautiful show, and the second year even elevated in terms of creativity."
What do you think? Do you feel like "Enlightened" ended in a good spot?
