HBO's "Enlightened" joins a growing list of series stranded by the cable channel.

"Enlightened," which stars Laura Dern as an unstable woman trying to find her place in life, has been shelved after its second season. In a statement Tuesday, HBO called the cancellation a "very difficult decision."

The series joins other cult favorites that HBO abruptly killed, including "Bored to Death," "Deadwood," "Hung" and the horse-track drama "Luck," which didn't even make it past its first-season finish line.

"Enlightened," created by Dern and co-star Mike White, was critically acclaimed but low-rated. Last year, Dern won a Golden Globe for best TV comedy actress for her role as a manic depressive turned activist. The cast also included Diane Ladd and Luke Wilson.
