Laura Dern's comedy drama failed to do well in the ratings

Laura Dern's TV show Enlightened has reportedly been cancelled.

The comedy drama, which also starred Luke Wilson and Diane Ladd, will not be back for a third series, according to reports.

An HBO spokesman said: "It was a very difficult decision. We've decided not to continue Enlightened for a third season."

He added that they were very "proud" of the series, which was created by Laura and School Of Rock director Mike White.

The programme, about a manic-depressive who becomes an activist, was critically acclaimed but failed to do well in the ratings.

Last year Laura was named best actress at the Golden Globes for her performance in the show.
