HBO renews ‘Ten Year Old Tom’, drops ‘Time Traveler’s Wife’

Ten Year Old Tom

Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO has renewed adult animation series Ten Year Old Tom for a second run, while cancelling sci-fi drama The Time Traveler’s Wife after its first season.

The series, which is created, produced, directed and written by Steve Dildarian, will return for a sophomore outing on US-based streamer HBO Max.

Produced by Work Friends, a joint venture between Nick Weidenfeld and Tomorrow Studios, Ten Year Old Tom follows the misadventures of an average kid as he contends with questionable guidance from the well-meaning grownups around him.

Billy Wee, SVP of comedy & animation at HBO Max, commented: “Steve Dildarian has always had a unique and charming way of depicting the pain and hilarity of everyday life. We love the sincerity and bewilderment of Tom as he navigates the misguided adults around him daily and we are looking forward to more life lessons and mishaps in season two.”

Meanwhile, The Time Traveler’s Wife, the drama series based on the Audrey Niffenegger novel of the same name, has been cancelled after its first season.

Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat was behind the adaptation of the story that follows the romance between a woman (Rose Leslie) and a man (Theo James) who has a strange genetic disorder that causes him to sporadically travel through time.
