Netflix cancels their true-crime parody American Vandal
In a recent slew of Netflix cancellations, the streaming service is now canceling their true-crime parody American Vandal. The Funny Or Die and CBS TV-produced comedy series released their second season on September 14, 2018. Although Netflix has not made any comments about the reasoning behind the cancellation, they stated to The Hollywood Reporter,
"American Vandal will not return for a third season. 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."
Within recent weeks, Netflix has already canceled three of their shows. Marvel's Luke Cage, Marvel's Iron Fist and All about the Washingtons. Similar to American Vandal's cancellation, Netflix has not given an official statement about pulling the chord on some of their content. Netflix has declined to comment on the ratings of those programs.
However, fans should not heartbroken, because American Vandal co-creators Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda say they have received multiple offers to revive the series elsewhere. The third season is already in the early stages of development.
The first season of American Vandal was about a High schooler named Dylan Maxwell, who is accused of vandalizing seven faculty cars with phallic images. The series satire was not only amusing, however, it displayed unique sort of brilliance that was executed well.
The second season of American Vandal continued its usual format with a new case to be solved. The case of the filthy vandal called the "Turd Burglar." New school, new location, new crime and the same old team, continued its' impressive blend of comedy and sagacity.
