Good Netflix shows canceled: I Am Not Okay With This

I Am Not Okay With This was set to return for season 2 at Netflix, although the streaming network didn’t confirm the news publicly. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19, the series will not be returning for season 2, according to a report from Deadline. Netflix has effectively canceled I Am Not Okay With This.

That’s such a bummer because this show was one of the best teen shows on Netflix.

Basically, it sounds like it came down the production budget, like The Society. Netflix would have need to put up more money and expand the budget to help keep the cast and crew safe, and the network decided it was not worth the risk.

Good Netflix shows delayed: Riverdale season 5

Technically, Riverdale isn’t a Netflix original series. Like Peaky Blinders, Netflix has the international distribution rights to the series, so it’s like a Netflix original series around the world.

Riverdale season 5 has been delayed until January 2021 at the earliest. Normally, new seasons of Riverdale premiere on The CW in October with new episodes coming to Netflix (Non-US) the day after they air.

That’s not happening this year. The CW bumped back the start of production and the premiere date to all the cast and crew to film new episodes as safe as they possibly can. Production on the new season is starting soon, if it hasn’t started already.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted recently that the production offices were officially open and table reads for the first two episodes were happening virtually.

Stay tuned for the official Riverdale season 5 release date.
