Netflix has cancelled its dramas The Society and I Am Not Okay With This due to issues related to coronavius.
The two series have both aired their first seasons, and had been renewed for a second.
However, it seems it wasn’t to be, with the streaming giant admitting they were ‘disappointed’ to have to cancel them.
Netflix told Deadline in a statement: ‘We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This.
‘We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.’
The Society, which starred the likes of Kathryn Newton, Jack Mulhern and Kristine Froseth, followed teenagers who were displaced from their hometown into a weird new reality.
They’re forced to create their own rules and society Lord Of The Flies style, with things quickly spiralling into chaos.
I Am Not Okay With This, starring Sophia Lillis and Sofia Bryant, follows a girl who has to navigate high school and teenagehood, all while experiencing mystic superpowers.
The news comes just days after Netflix cancelled Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj, with Greenhouse Academy being cancelled last month.
