Mozart in the Jungle is being cancelled by Amazon after four seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The decision was made by new chief Jennifer Salke, who began working for Amazon a few weeks ago.
"We are so proud of the four seasons we made of this show and are grateful to the cast, crew, fans and Amazon for writing this symphony with us. We hope people will keep finding the show for years to come," said executive producers Paul Weitz, Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Will Graham in a joint statement.

Mozart in the Jungle is a comedy-drama web television series produced by Picrow for Amazon Studios. It was created by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, Alex Timbers, and directed by Paul Weitz. The show received a production order in March 2014.
The story was inspired by Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music, oboist Blair Tindall's 2005 memoir of her professional career in New York, playing various high-profile gigs with ensembles including the New York Philharmonic and the orchestras of numerous Broadway shows. The series stars Gael García Bernal as Rodrigo, a character based on conductor Gustavo Dudamel, alongside Lola Kirke, Malcolm McDowell, Saffron Burrows, Hannah Dunne, Peter Vack, and Bernadette Peters.
