Those eagerly awaiting the airing of Apple’s first originally filmed show will be hit with disappointment – this week, as Reuters confirms that the tech giant has cancelled its now two-times rescheduled LA launch party for the series.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series, which will arrive as a spin-off adaptation based on James Cordon’s online viral hit, was reportedly set to see its global premiere on Apple Music – on Monday.
However after the Californian firm cancelled its scheduled press event with little to no notice for attendees, Reuters says that the company did provide a public statement in which it said the series would launch ‘later this year.’
Apple, a company known for its precisely coordinated product launches, declined to explain the delays, but said in a statement that “Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple Music later this year.”
The announcement of the series’ deferral comes just days after it was announced Miley Cyrus (and crew) had shot an episode to mark the show’s first real family outing … and just hours after Variety spilled further details on Cordon’s planned primetime Carpool special, set to air on CBS – this May.
