The Network has announced the cancellation of the season's sophomore of I Am Not Okay With This and The Society.
The streamer network has pulled the plugs on their plans to renew The Society and I Am Not Okay With This which both premiered in May 2019 and February 2020 respectively.
The Society had already been announced for a renewal July last year, and I Am Not Okay With This was also looking fruitful for a second season. However, it was gathered from entertainment weekly that the Netflix executives have put a stop to the planned renewals due to complications caused by the Coronavirus global pandemic. It was gathered that the executives were pleased with the outcome of both series, but the unexpected increase in budgets due to the pandemic contributed greatly to their decision.
"We've made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This," Netflix said in a statement. "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."
Starring Jack Mulhern, Kathryn Newton, Alex Fitzalan, and Kristen Froseth amongst others, The Society is a series that narrates the story of how the teen residents of West Ham forge a society to survive after a mysterious vanish of everyone else in their wealthy town.
I Am Not Okay With This stars the It movies star, Sophia Lillis as a teenager looking for a way to survive maturity and some superpower she had just discovered.
