On the time, the numbers will need to have been first rate sufficient to warrant a swift renewal from Netflix for a second season. However the second a part of the primary season was launched one 12 months later, in November 2022, and it didn’t achieve this effectively.

First, Half 2 didn’t break into a worldwide weekly High 10; it reached the High 10 TV in solely 11 nations, in comparison with the 28 nations reached by Half 1.

Once we have a look at information from TV Time (that logs the variety of members that declared to have watched episodes of the sequence), we will observe a sample. The primary ten episodes (aka Half 1) solely misplaced 12% between the primary and the final. The next eight episodes (aka Half 2) solely misplaced 11% between the primary and the final. The issue lies right here within the drop between the tenth and the eleventh episode.

If we have a look at the decay charge between the primary and the final episode of the primary season, the decay charge is now nearer to 50%, that means that half of the individuals who began the sequence didn’t return for Half 2.

Half 1’s numbers have been good for a renewal, however Half 2’s numbers aren’t. This atypical launch schedule might be guilty, simply as a renewal was introduced after solely the primary episodes. Half 2 acted as an actual season 2, with a steep drop off in numbers that resulted within the cancellation of the renewal made final 12 months. A renewal that in all probability got here too early within the course of.

Both method, even when this cancellation could be defined with numbers (or lack thereof), the way it handled it’s – once more – not talent-friendly, and it perpetuates this concept that it cancels all the things.
