Netflix Cancels Idris Elba’s “Turn Up Charlie” After One Season

Idris Elba in "Turn Up Charlie"

A year after Turn Up Charlie was released on Netflix, the platform has decided to cancel the series starring Idris Elba.

Elba played Charlie, a struggling DJ and bachelor, who starts nannying for the daughter of his childhood best friend, Gabby (Frankie Hervey), who’s become much more successful than him. Also starring in the series were Piper Perabo and JJ Feild.

Netflix said in a statement, “Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season. We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects.”
