After two seasons of success, Netflix cancelled its mockumentary true crime series.
Netflix’s surprise super hit has is not being renewed for a third season. Netflix has made an unanticipated decision to cancel the series despite the numerous awards it received. Netflix released the following statement:
“We’re very grateful to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix, and to the fans and critics who embraced its unique and unconventional humor.”
American Vandal is an improvised true crime documentary. The two seasons had some lewdness, which may have alienated some potential viewers.
It received wide acclaim on its first episode. The show currently holds a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It also won a Peabody Award for its first season and was nominated for an Emmy in the outstanding writing for a limited series category.
Current thoughts are one of the reasons for cancellation was because Netflix produced this with an outside company. More and more Netflix is bringing all of their movies and series to be produced in-house so that they may control global release rights.
American Vandal was CBS TV Studios’ first series for an outside streaming service. CBS TV Studios currently receives interest from potential buyers for the Funny Or Die series.
