When it comes to Netflix originals, the streaming service has a knack for putting out a lot of new content, as well as cancelling a lot of it. Following in the footsteps of October Faction, V-Wars, and so many other single-season original series, Netflix has announced it will not renew its Idris Elba-led comedy, Turn Up Charlie, for a second season.
A statement from Netflix, published on Deadline, acknowledges the hard work from the show’s cast and crew alongside Elba–who starred, co-created, and served as executive producer on the series. The statement ends with a note that Netflix “[looks] forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects.” What Elba may be interested in creating for Netflix in the future is anyone’s guess.
Turn Up Charlie pulled from the actor’s experience as a DJ (Elba performs under the very good alias, DJ Big Driis) to inspire the premise for of the eight episode comedy, which also starred Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly; Looper) and JJ Feild (Captain America: The First Avenger).
The first season of the show debuted on March 15, 2019.
And although Netflix has been canceling shows left and right, the company doesn’t plan on delaying any original content because of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re interested in what’s coming down the line, check out what’s new to Netflix in May.
