Netflix Cancels Blockbuster After One Season
Netflix has canceled Blockbuster after one season. The comedy series starred Randall Park and Melissa Fumero as employees at the last remaining Blockbuster in America. The first season saw the team of the store working to remain relevant and keep their doors open to prevent losing their jobs. The series underwhelmed since its premiere with the ten-episode series failing to make the streaming platform’s top 10 list in the U.S.
The series did not receive favorable feedback and from our experience watching Blockbuster, the cast was a shining point in what felt like an average series that failed to set itself apart. Blockbuster joins two other series from the streamer that recently got axed. Warrior Nun, The Bastard Son and the Devil Himself, and The Midnight Club. Many of these series were geared up with setting up a second season but unfortunately, we find ourselves in a time of uncertainty with the life expectancy of TV series these days and although some of these were praised much more than others by critics and fans, it’s always a shame to not see a project get to tell its full story.
Starring alongside Fumero and Park is Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, JB Smoove, Olga Merediz, and Kamaia Fairburn. The series was created by Vanessa Ramos who also wrote for the series and executive produced. David Caspe, John Davis, John Fox, and Jackie Clarke also executive-produced the series
