VH1 is rescinding its second season renewal for scripted dramedy Hindsight.

The Viacom-owned cable network has opted to cancel the well-received series after one season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

"Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future," VH1 said in a statement. "We love Hindsight and couldn't be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again."

The series stars Laura Ramsey as Becca, a woman who on the eve of her second wedding in 2015, is transported back 20 years to the morning of her first wedding. The series was created by Fox, who produced alongside Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman
 
 
VH1 renewed the series for a second round in March, following its freshman finale. The series was part of a scripted roster at VH1 that also includes Hit the Floor, which is heading into its third season. The network also is developing drama The Breaks as a back-door pilot/TV movie and recently parted ways with its first original series Single Ladies, which was revived for a fourth season by BET off-shoot Centric. 
 
The news comes after FX chief John Landgraf told reporters at TCA that there is "simply too much television," with 2015 on track to produce a staggering 400-plus original scripted series. That's up from a then-record of 371 series a year ago.
