Netflix is cleaning the house in a big way, canceling shows one after another. After series like Orange is the New Black, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Animals and Nathan for You recently got axed by the streaming giant, mockumentary American Vandal now met the same fate.
“American Vandal will not return for a third seasonת” said Netflix in a statement. “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.”
American Vandal premiered back in 2017, and the second season of the show made its way to Netflix just a few weeks ago. The series was a parody of true crime documentaries and followed a group of high school students trying to solve absurd mystery cases. It starred Tyler Alvarez and Griffin Gluck in the leading roles.
The cancellation came as a bit of a surprise, especially since the series met with critical acclaim and was even honored with a Peabody Award in April 2018. Still, the story of American Vandal might not end here, since the show is reportedly being shopped around by the producers with CBS All Access being one of the most likely landing spots for the program.
