Part 2 of No Good Nick is now on Netflix and if you’re wondering whether the series is coming back for part 3 or a full second season we’ve sadly got bad news. After a complete first season, Netflix has cancelled the show.
Before we dig into the show’s future, let’s quickly recap. No Good Nick was first requested by Netflix in September 2018. Filming began in the latter half of 2018 and continued into 2019.
It was initially broadcast as a 20-episode series. The second season was divided into two parts. Part 1 was released by Netflix on April 15, 2019, and part 2 came several months later, on August 5, 2019.
It's about a con artist who falls for a scammer family. It’s a strange concept with some even going as far to call it confounding but has grown an audience largely thanks to the show’s key star Sean Astin.
Status of official renewal: Cancelled (last update: 09/15/2019).
While Emmy nominations were being made, the show was quietly canceled.
The cast and crew were positive about renewal opportunities up until September middle.
Sean Astin has given advice on how to get the show renewed for another part and it’s really simple. Parts 1 and 2, and then share your love for the show.
David Steinberg who acts as the showrunner for the series has said that “We are so unbelievably proud!” thanking Netflix “for being a place where creative people can flourish and do our small part to help change the world for the better.”
The showrunner made the following tweet on September 15th:
To the No Good Nick Fandom,
It’s our sad duty to announce that No Good Nick will not be moving forward with part 3. Making this show has been a life changing experience for us and we couldn’t have asked for a better response from the audience. The messages we’ve received , the fan art, fanfic, all those amazing edits – it has all meant so much to us. Everyone involved in the making of the show is as heartbroken as we are not to be able to continue the story of Nick and the Thompsons.
But we feel that we made the show we wanted to make and we are so proud of the story we told. We want to thank our amazing cast, our incredible crew, and our talent writers for coming together in this collaborative medium to make something new and surprising. Family enteeratinment with complex themes about morality and forgiveness. The world’s first serialized multicam. The first gay kiss on a family show. The first combination of comedy, drama and mystery in a sitcom.
We firmly believe that representation matters. We’ve heard os many inspiring stories about how Jeremy’s coming out touched your hearts and showed the world as it should be. It warms our hearts, too, to know we’ve done a small part to change the world for the better.
Thank you to Netflix for giving us this opportunity to tell ur story. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. But now Nick and the Thompsons (and Jeric!) will have to live on in the imagination of our amazing fandom.
Thank you again for watching and for being such great fans of No Good Nick.
Adding to the Memoriam was Sean Astin who played Ed said: “Making No Good Nick on Netflix was literally a dream come true. My time on the Sunset Gower lot will stay with me forever.”, later adding, “A special show. Gone too soon.”
Another show that recently got renewal in another location was the revival of ‘One Day at a Time’ who eventually saw a renewal at POP TV. It is likely that petitions will be filed soon for another network to continue the work of No Good Nick.
You might also be interested in a show similar to Alexa or Katie, which has been renewed for 20 more episodes later this year.
Now, let's get to work. Are you ready for No Good Nick to return in season 3? Comment below.
