Netflix Cancels American Vandal
Only after two seasons, Netflix has cancelled American Vandal. Although Netflix has not given out a reason, it has formally announced that the show will not return for season 3. But seeing past this decision is getting tough. No controversies surrounded the series. In fact, it gained widespread acclaim when it debuted. And also received Emmy nomination in the outstanding writing for a limited series category. However, American Vandal was too popular a show and it might not completely end just because Netflix cancelled it. There is still hope that it will shopped somewhere else.
Netflix Drops Off ‘American Vandal’
The half-hour mockumentary series premiered for season 2 on Netflix back in September. But now, Netflix has cancelled it for renewal with season 3. In an announcement, Netflix announced that American Vandal will not return. And expressed gratitude to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix. The streaming service also thanked fans and critics for embracing the unique and unconventional humor.
American Vandal debuted on Netflix in September 2017. Despite having a largely unknown cast, and very little promotion, the show is quite popular. American Vandal comes from the true crime documentary genre. The first season showed how two high school students investigated whether or not a fellow student spray painted penises over faculty cars in the parking. The second season followed the same students travel to a prestigious prep school in the Pacific Northwest to investigate a series of poop-related pranks.
American Vandal starred Tyler Alvarez, Griffin Gluck, Jimmy Tatro, Melvin Gregg, and Travis Tope. Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault created the series. The executive producers are Dan Lagana, Joe Farrell for Funny Or Die, and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3 Arts Entertainment. CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die, and 3 Arts produced the series for Netflix.
Nobody is still sure why Netflix cancelled American Vandal. But speculation says it has something to do the fact that it is produced by an outside studio. Netflix is cutting down almost everything that is not something the service creates within its studios. But there are still strong hopes for American Vandal. And someone is may pick up the show again very soon!
