Painting with John Season 2

Was Painting with John cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on HBO Max? Now that season 1 is over, fans are wondering if the show will continue for another season or not. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Painting with John About?

Each episode has Lurie, the co-founder of musical group The Lounge Lizards, at his worktable, honing his watercolor techniques and sharing what he’s learned about life. With images of Lurie’s paintings, original music and his point of view all rolled into one, the series strikes an irreverent tone while reminding us to prioritize some time every day for creativity, fun and a bit of mischief.

HBO will debut “Painting With John,” a new series directed by, written by and starring Lurie, Jan. 22. Each of the new show’s six episodes will feature the artist, musician and actor painting watercolors and reflecting on life. Adam McKay and Todd Schulman of Hyperobject Industries will serve as executive producers. The series is photographed and edited by Erik Mockus.

Lurie had previously teased that he was working on a new TV project, writing on Twitter last year, “We have started shooting Painting With John. Whenever the painting or talking is going poorly, I say – Let’s go outside and shoot another elephant shot. So we do -“
HBO’s unscripted series PAINTING WITH JOHN has been renewed for a second season. Season one debuted in January of this year.

Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming quote: “There’s something so hypnotic and captivating about John’s style. He’s a brilliant raconteur with many more stories to tell, and we can’t get enough of them.”

John Lurie, writer, director and star quote: “My hope is to make a TV show where people see it and say, ‘I have no idea what I just saw, but I couldn’t stop watching it and it was wonderful.’ I think I can get there in season two.”

Season one of PAINTING WITH JOHN featured musician, actor, director and painter John Lurie ensconced at his worktable, honing his intricate watercolor techniques and sharing reflections on what he’s learned about life. Combining images of Lurie’s paintings, original music, and irreverent point of view on tapping into your childlike artist side, his overall ambivalence toward fame, and more, the series serves as a reminder to prioritize a little time every day for creativity, fun and a bit of mischief. Season one episodes are currently available to stream on HBO Max.

LA Times called the series “HBO at it’s best,” while NPR noted the first season was “hypnotic, soothing, satisfying and profoundly meditative,” and New York Times says the show “explores living as an art form itself.”

Season 1 credits: Written and directed by John Lurie; executive produced by Adam McKay, Todd Schulman for Hyperobject Industries; co-produced by Matt Dwyer; photographed and edited by Erik Mockus.

The last episode of the series was released on February 26, 2021 in the US.
