Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Mr. Corman' Cancelled After 1 Season on Apple TV Plus
The final episode, titled ”The Big Picture,“ was released by streamer on Friday
Apple TV+ has not renewed Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s teacher dramedy “Mr. Corman” for a second season, an individual with knowledge of the situation confirmed to TheWrap.
The series – which he created, directed, wrote, and produced in partnership with A24 – stars Gordon-Levitt as Josh Corman, an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. Arturo Castro (“Broad City,” “Alternatino with Arturo Castro”) plays Corman’s roommate, Victor Morales. Debra Winger and Shannon Woodward co-star as his mother and sister, along with “Ted Lasso”‘s Juno Temple and musician Logic. Lucy Lawless, Hugo Weaving, Amanda Crew, Emily Tremaine, Jamie Chung and Veronica Falcon fill out the ranks of the supporting cast.
Despite earning mostly positive reviews (critics gave it a 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience score came in slightly lower at 65 percent) upon its Oct. 6 premiere, the show failed to receive the green light for Season 2.
Gordon-Levitt still has projects at the streamer. The multi-hyphenate’s company HITRECORD produced animated series “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory,” which debuted on Apple TV+ last week. Gordon-Levitt also voices the role of Luxcraft in all ten episodes of the show’s first season.
Inspired by the work of visual artist Toff ‘Wirrow’ Mazery, co-created by Emmy Award winner Edward Jesse, developed by Emmy winner Michael Ryan (“All Hail King Julien,” “Kung Fu Panda”) and executive produced by Emmy winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt, HITRECORD and FOX Entertainment’s Bento Box Entertainment, the 10-episode animated epic “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory” follows Wolfboy (voiced by Kassian Akhtar), an imaginative oddball who discovers a strange realm at the centre of the earth where fantastical beings called ‘Sprytes’ create things for the natural world on the surface.
Creators Mazery and Jesse are joined by showrunner Ryan as writers and executive producers, while HITRECORD founder Gordon-Levitt, Emmy winner Jared Geller (HITRECORD’s “Create Together”) and Emmy winners and Bento Box Co-Founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara (“Bob’s Burgers,” “The Simpsons”) also executive produce the animated series.
