Netflix has canceled the musical drama series, Soundtrack, after one season.

The streaming giant picked up the show (from former Quantico showrunner Josh Safran and Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison) and developed it after it was passed over at Fox during the 2018 pilot season.

Known previously as Mixtape, the show was one of the buzziest pilots of the year, but Fox chose not to take it. A deal was struck at Netflix just as the options for the cast were set to expire. However, the series’s first season dropped very quietly on Netflix when it premiered last month.

The series starred Paul James, Callie Hernandez, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Jenna Dewan, Jahmil French, Megan Ferguson, Isaiah Givens, Madeleine Stowe and Christina Milian.

The official description called it “a romantic musical drama that looks at the love stories connecting a diverse, disparate group of people in contemporary Los Angeles through the music that lives inside their hearts and minds.”
