Netflix Cancels ‘The Society’ and ‘I Am Not Okay With This’

Despite a season two renewal last summer, Deadline exclusively reports,

Netflix has reversed its Season 2 renewal decision for ‘The Society.’ The YA drama, whose production was impacted by COVID-19, has been canceled and won’t film a second season. Additionally, Netflix has opted not to proceed with the second season of another coming-of-age series, ‘I Am Not Okay With This.’

Season two of The Society was slated to premiere later this year. The show was reportedly eying next month to begin filming, which got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. On the other hand, I Am Not Okay With This had yet to have been officially renewed, but reportedly was quietly renewed for a second season, with scripts written and entirely on track to go into production.

According to Deadline’s sources, uncertainty around production dates and balancing the availabilities of a large cast and unexpected budget increases due to COVID-19 led to the decisions to cancel both shows, even though they’ve been well-received by fans and critics, as well as reliable support at Netflix.

In a statement to Deadline, Netflix expresses their reasoning for the difficult decision not to move forward with both of the second seasons of The Society, and I Am Not Okay With This.

“We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are all grateful to these creators and all the writers, casts and crew who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”
