- No reason given by Hulu for the decision
The musical series Up Here has been cancelled by Hulu before it even made it to the streaming service. The show, co-created by husband-and-wife team Kristen and Bobby Lopez, won’t be released to the public.
The show was described as a mix of romantic comedy and a contemporary bildungsroman. The story centered around a young woman navigating life, love, and the challenges of early adulthood, with a memorable songs-filled narrative experience. Up Here’s talented creators, Kristen and Bobby Lopez, are both known for their accomplishments in the music and theater industry, including numerous awards and accolades.
Although there is no specific information available regarding Hulu’s decision to cancel Up Here, it is known that the Lopezes have been involved in various other projects recently. It is possible that this development has impacted their ability to devote the time necessary for Up Here.
Despite the cancellation, the Lopezes continue to work in the entertainment industry. Kristen is currently working on a stage adaptation of the film “Something’s Gotta Give,” while her husband Bobby is collaborating with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the upcoming Disney film “Encanto.”
