Netflix has cancelled the second season of the TV series The Society and I Am Not Okay With This: here's why
Bad news for Netflix fans: the streaming platform has announced the closure of two TV series: The Society and I Am Not Okay With This. These are two TV series in their first season and that have not been renewed for a quite particular reason: the changed conditions following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The communication came directly from Netflix through a press release issued in the previous days.
The news has made quite a stir because Netflix is unlikely to renew at least for a second season its original TV series. Moreover, the two dramas had also collected a good success, so much so that the screenwriters had already started working on the new episodes. And this lightning bolt stopped everything, forcing the team to stop and focus on new projects. The Society and I Am Not Okay With This are still available on Netflix and those who haven't seen them yet can catch up without any problems. Well knowing that the first will also be the last season available.
Why Netflix cancelled The Society and I Am Not Okay With This
The decision to cancel The Society and I Am Not Okay With This has sparked much debate on social media. After all, they are two TV series that have had a good success and many were waiting for the second season. But the Coronavirus has forced Netflix to make choices and the video streaming platform has decided to stop the development of new seasons.
This is a decision that most likely other services will follow: the explosion of the global pandemic forces to review investments and cut TV series that do not have large margins of growth.
The explanation came from the same Netflix in a press release in which it explains that the cancellation was caused by changed circumstances related to Covid. For the moment Netflix doesn't seem to want to suspend other TV series, but could decide to shorten the length of the less successful ones, ordering only the final season. We'll see in the coming months how the situation evolves.
