Dec. 18 (UPI) -- HBO Max has decided not to renew its Head of the Class sequel series for a second season.

The show starred Isabella Gomez as a teacher who tries to get students in a high school honors program to pursue interests outside of academics.

The cast also included Dior Goodjohn, Gavin Lewis, Adrian Matthew Escalona, Brandon Severs, Jolie Hoang-Rappaport, Jorge Diaz, Katie Beth Hall and Christa Miller.

Robin Givens, who starred in the original show, reprised her role as a Darlene in the sequel. Darlene is now the mother of an honor student and the head of the school's parents' association.

The new comedy from executive producer Bill Lawrence and executive producers/showrunners Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen was released on the streaming platform Nov. 4.

"We will not be moving forward with a second season of Head of the Class," HBO Max said in a statement Friday.

"We were grateful to work with Bill, Amy, and Seth to bring back such an iconic series, and we thank them and the terrific cast for their hard work and dedication."

No reason was given for the cancellation and HBO Max does not release viewership information.
