Zoë Kravitz Addresses Hulu’s ‘High Fidelity’ Cancellation: ‘It Was a Big Mistake’

“High Fidelity” was undoubtedly one of Hulu’s best offerings in recent years.

Sadly, the show was canceled after just one season. Kravitz speaks on the show’s cancelation to Elle’s Jessica Herndon about the show’s abrupt end.

“They didn’t realize what that show was and what it could do,” says Kravitz told the journalist. “The amount of letters, DMs, people on the street, and women that look like us—like, that love for the show, it meant something to people. It was a big mistake.”

In the series, which premiered on Valentine’s Day two years ago, Kravitz played lead character Rob, who owns a record store in Crown Heights and is obsessed with ‘top five’ lists. Although the series actually explores Rob’s epic romance failures.

Rob not only owns a record store (as any self-respecting record store owner should be), but she’s completely obsessed with music (a and her obsession knows no bounds. Her intense love for music is succinctly decoded through its scoring, whether it be rap, disco, funk, soul, or rock.

However, the series was based on a movie of the same name, where the main character was played by white actor, John Cusack. Many seemingly took exception to Kravitz starring in the leading role because she is a woman of color.

Kravitz has moved on from Hulu’s faux pas.

Fans are now eagerly awaiting her role as Catwoman in the upcoming DC movie, “The Batman,” alongside Robert Pattinson.

“The fandom is wild. When the announcement came out, I got more phone calls than I’d gotten on any birthday,” she shared.

“Obviously, you want to look good in a catsuit, but I wanted it to be realistic that I’m able to do anything in this film,” she says. “So I had to be strong. I got stronger than I’ve ever been. That felt good, to see what I was capable of. I felt confident—and I could kick some ass.”
