LOS ANGELES-Project Greenlight was a series that focused on first-time filmmakers vying to win the chance to direct a feature film. Executive producers Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and film production company Miramax would pick the winner of the competition and give that person the opportunity to direct a movie.

However, after four seasons, HBO will not be renewing the show for a fifth, Jason Bourne star Damon confirmed in an interview with the Associated Press.

“I’m not one to question (their programming),” he told AP. “They do such a great job. But we have to take it out again.” Damon is reportedly keen to continue the show on another network, or streaming service.

Project Greenlight first aired on HBO for two seasons between 2001 and 2003 before moving to Bravo for season three in 2005. The series returned to HBO after an absence of ten years in 2015 for a fourth season.

Poor ratings have been touted as the reason for the show’s demise, after the premiere of Season 4 in September 2015 drew just 154,000 viewers. Meanwhile, ratings for the fourth season of Project Greenlight as a whole fell to a reported 1.3 million viewers, according to Variety.

“When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us,” HBO told Variety in a statement. “We are proud of the show and were pleased with its run throughout the years.”

The show hit headlines after the Damon clashed on the topic of diversity with African-American producer Effie Brown. The actor was heavily criticised after he explained to Brown: “When we’re talking about diversity, you do it in the casting of the film, not in the casting of the show (choosing a director on Project Greenlight).” The Good Will Hunting star’s comments caused controversy and he subsequently apologised.
