HBO's "Luck" comes to an end Sunday night, as the series finale airs just two months after the show made its debut.
HBO invested a lot in the series, attracting talent such as Dustin Hoffman, as well as Oscar nominated director Michael Mann. Supporting cast was also impressive and included Nick Nolte and Dennis Farina. However, the series has been canceled not for poor ratings, but because three horses died on set. HBO has since announced that even though it had taken every precaution to protect horses on set, it could not absolutely guarantee their safety, and as such this season would be the show's last.
HBO has said, "While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won't in the future. Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision."
HBO has also described the season finale, saying: "Gus takes extraordinary precautions to protect his boss. As Jerry maps out a strategy for another big score, Escalante preps his race-day horses while keeping an anxious ear out for news about Jo, who's still in the hospital. Renzo welcomes his mother to town. Mon Gateau runs his biggest race yet. Later, Ace and Gus join an expectant crowd for the epic showdown between the two stars of Santa Anita, Ace and Gus' Pint of Plain and Walter's Gettin'Up Morning."
