Netflix shows that could be canceled and renewed

Netflix just renewed Ginny and Georgia for season 2 in mid-April 2021. With that renewal news, it means Netflix still hasn’t canceled a show in 2021 so far. And, it means a fan-favorite series is coming back for another season, which is something all fans can agree is a good thing.

We never like to see Netflix cancel shows, and that’s because, even if it has poor ratings, some fans will be disappointed. Unfortunately, that’s kind of the nature of the TV industry, though. Shows have to get canceled to free up more money to make new shows, and the cycle continues.

So, we put together a list of Netflix shows that could be canceled in the very near future. We also picked a few shows that, while not renewed yet, should have nothing to worry about moving forward.

There are a few reports and rumors that Netflix has already renewed The Irregulars and Shadow and Bone for another season, so you won’t see those titles on this list.

Let’s get the list started one of the Netflix shows that could be canceled soon, Grand Army.

Is Grand Army canceled?

What we’re expecting: Canceled

Netflix has not announced a decision on Grand Army yet, so it’s unclear to fans if the series is coming back for season 2 or not. I think this show might be in trouble for a few reasons.

Mainly, Grand Army premiered on Netflix in October 2020, and we still haven’t heard if the series is coming back for another season. That’s not a good sign.

On top of that, the series wasn’t wildly popular on Netflix. Some fans enjoyed the series, while others clearly did not. That’s also not a good sign. Netflix wants to make hits. Did Grand Army rise to the level of viewership and engagement that Netflix is looking for? We’ll have to wait and see.

It’s interesting that Grand Army hasn’t been officially canceled yet, if that’s the route Netflix chooses to go. The series does have a huge cast with tons of people interacting on screen, so we know that a show like this wouldn’t be able to start production until it’s safe to do so without drastically changing. So, maybe that’s what Netflix is waiting for?

My guess is that Grand Army will be canceled, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Netflix shows - Dash and Lily canceled - Christmas movies on Netflix

Will there be a second season of Dash and Lily?

What we’re expecting: Renewed

Like Grand Army, Dash and Lily was also filmed in New York City and arrived on Netflix in the fall of 2020. We’ve been waiting about the same amount of time to find out if Dash and Lily season 2 is happening or not.

Unlike Grand Army, Dash and Lily was quite popular. There’s no debate that it was one of the most popular Netflix shows or movies during the 2020 holiday season.

While I’m not sure we need a season 2 of Dash and Lily, I do think that it will happen eventually. There are a few reasons fans can expect a renewal.

First of all, it was very popular, as mentioned, but it’s also based on a book series by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. There are two more books in the series, so this story is really just getting started.

There’s no rush for Netflix to renew the series yet, so maybe the network is just taking its time and waiting for scripts to be developed or something. We don’t know that. But, we do know that Dash and Lily was filmed on location in New York.

It’s really challenging with the pandemic to film anywhere right now. It’s even more difficult to make spring or summer in New York look like winter, although yes, I am aware they can accomplish anything with TV and movie magic these days.

So, for those reasons, I think Dash and Lily season 2 is going to happen, but it probably won’t be released until the holiday season of 2022. That’s my best guess.

Next: Tiny Pretty Things

Tiny Pretty Things season 2

Is there a Tiny Pretty Things season 2?

What we’re expecting: Canceled

Tiny Pretty Things arrived on Netflix at the end of 2020. It was released in December, and it never really lived up to the hype of some of the other popular teen dramas with mature themes on the streaming service. Obviously, that’s never a good thing when it comes to Netflix renewing a show for another season.

As of yet, Netflix has not commented on Tiny Pretty Things season 2, but I’m not expecting this show to be renewed for season 2. It will likely be canceled after the first season, based on what we’ve see with similar shows that fail to move the needle for the streaming network.

We don’t have any insight on Netflix’s metrics, but the show was not on the Netflix Top 10 for long after its release.

It’s hard to say why Tiny Pretty Things hasn’t been canceled yet. Netflix could be looking at the season 2 scripts, gathering more data on the series over the last few months, and waiting to make a decision. Based on the relative lack of buzz online, it doesn’t seem like many fans are going to miss this show if it is canceled.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Netflix is going to cancel this show or renew for another season. Like Grand Army and Dash and Lily, this show does have a big cast, so it’s possible that it’s just not feasible to make a decision until Netflix knows when things will be back to normal with TV and film production.

We’ll let you know more about Tiny Pretty Things season 2 when we find out.

Next: Cursed

Netflix shows - Cursed season 2 starring Katherine Langford, Netflix shows in danger

Will there be a season 2 of Cursed?

What we’re expecting: Renewed

It’s been a really, really long time since Cursed premiered on Netflix. The first season of the fantasy series was added to Netflix in July 2020, and we still haven’t heard if Cursed is coming back for season 2 or not.

Despite the long layoff, I still have a good feeling that Cursed will be renewed for another season. This show has such a good cast. That’s really, really important. It means that there is always going to be a fan base for a show like this one.

While it wasn’t super popular on Netflix when it was released, it fills a massive void in the genre. There’s no show like this one on TV right now, and there’s so much potential for this show.

It’s based on characters of Arthurian legend and the book of the same name by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller. Netflix actually committed to making the show before the book was released, which makes me think that Netflix is actually playing the long game here.

You don’t get into business with Wheeler and Miller to cancel the show after one season, especially with how the season ended and the potential for more story. I assume Netflix will see this show through for another season or two.

Because of the scale of this show and the fact that it’s based on a book, that’s what I’m assuming is the hold-up with the Cursed season 2 renewal. It’s not actually about the viewership or anything like that.

That’s just speculation, though. Anything can happen in the world of TV and movies!

Next: Julie and the Phantoms

Julie and the Phantoms season 2

JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS (L to R) MADISON REYES as JULIE and CHARLIE GILLESPIE as LUKE in episode 107 of JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS Cr. KAILEY SCHWERMAN/NETFLIX © 2020

Will there be a Julie and the Phantoms season 2?

What we’re expecting: Renewed 

There have been all sorts of rumors and reports that Julie and the Phantoms season 2 is happening at Netflix. We just haven’t seen the official confirmation from the streaming network that it will happen.

Julie and the Phantoms premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2020. While the series wasn’t a massive hit, it was still popular and gained traction over the last few months. Now, there’s a massive fan campaign in the works to save the show before Netflix has a chance to cancel it.

Julie and the Phantoms is from Kenny Ortega who has done a number of massive hit shows. I don’t think Netflix would start working Ortega only to cancel the show when it’s at the height of its popularity.

If this goes the way I think it will, Netflix will renew Julie and the Phantoms for season 2 and then get to work on the new season when it’s safe to do so. It’s hard times out in the world of TV and movies right now. Netflix will likely want to make sure everything is good to go, and noticeably cheaper when they start filming season 2. Production costs are at an all-time high right now with all of the safety measures to protect the cast and crew from COVID-19.

We’ll, hopefully, get the Julie and the Phantoms season 2 renewal soon. Stay tuned!

Next: Mr. Iglesias

Mr. Iglesias season 4, Netflix shows in danger

Did Mr. Igelsias get canceled?

What we’re expecting: Canceled

Mr. Iglesias is Gabriel Iglesias’s Netflix show. The second half of season 2 was added to Netflix in December 2020. Since then, we haven’t heard about the future of the Netflix series.

The series is a multi-cam sitcom, so it’s a little bit different than some of the other big Netflix shows on the list.

Mr. Iglesias isn’t overwhelmingly popular, but it’s not a zero either. It’s a solid show with a decently sized audience, from what I can tell on the outside looking in. The problem with this show is that there are only a handful of Netflix shows that aren’t super popular or critically acclaimed that make it past the two or three-season mark.

So, for this show to be renewed for season 3, we have to assume that Netflix is doing business differently, the show has a big enough audience to warrant a renewal or both. I don’t know if either of those things is true. Because of that, I think Mr. Iglesias might be on the chopping block.

And, that has nothing to do with the quality of the show. From what I’ve seen, it’s a solid comedy. I don’t know if that gets the series a season 3 renewal, though.

We’ll have to wait and see what Netflix does with Mr. Iglesias in the near future.

Firefly Lane season 2 - Best Netflix shows of 2021

Is Firefly Lane going to have a season 2?

What we’re expecting: Renewed 

Firefly Lane premiered on Netflix in early February 2021. The series is based on the book of the same name by Kristin Hannah. There are two books in the series, which makes me think Netflix is going to renew Firefly Lane for season 2 in the near future.

We still haven’t heard the official word on the future of the series, but we’re still within a few months of the release date, so there’s no reason to panic just yet.

Firefly Lane has a great cast, headlined by Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke. The season ended in a very interesting place, which also makes me think a season 2 renewal order is imminent.

We’ve seen Netflix invest heavily into romance series and movies in recent years. It’s only a matter of time before Netflix renews this show. I would be STUNNED if Firefly Lane isn’t renewed for season 2. The viewership seemed to be there, and this show is right in the same group as Virgin River, Sweet Magnolias, and Bridgerton, as some of the most popular shows on Netflix.

We’ll let you know when Firefly Lane is renewed for season 2. Stay tuned!

Next: The Crew

Kevin James in The Crew season 2

THE CREW (L to R) JILLIAN MUELLER as CATHERINE and KEVIN JAMES as KEVIN in episode 101 of THE CREW Cr. ERIC LIEBOWITZ/NETFLIX © 2021

Is The Crew canceled at Netflix?

What we’re expecting: Canceled

Netflix doesn’t make a ton of bad original shows, but The Crew is definitely in that category, sadly. It’s just not a very good show, despite having a good cast and starring Kevin James.

The series premiered on Netflix in February 2021, and it just never really got off the ground. We didn’t see it much on the daily Netflix Top 10. That means it probably wasn’t super popular with Netflix subscribers.

Because it’s not very good and not very popular, we should see The Crew canceled at Netflix soon.

Normally, we have to wait about two months until Netflix announces a cancellation. At the time of publishing, we’re right around that time. I’m fully expecting we’ll see Netflix cancel The Crew in the next couple of weeks.

If The Crew is somehow able to get a season 2 renewal, I’ll be very surprised.

Stay tuned for more news about The Crew season 2 on Netflix!

Next: Country Comfort

Is Country Comfort canceled?

What we’re expecting: Canceled

If The Crew missed the mark at Netflix, the same could be said about Country Comfort starring Katherine McPhee. It’s not that Country Comfort is bad, necessarily. It’s just not very popular, and that’s what it takes to get Netflix to pick up the series for another season.

Country Comfort premiered on Netflix on March 19, 2021, so we have a few more weeks to see how things go. Netflix usually waits at least two months from the release date to share renewal or cancellation news.

Country Comfort has been included in the daily Netflix Top 10, but it’s been toward the bottom of the list. Who Killed Sara has been much more popular, and now, a bunch of shows have jumped to the top of the list.

I wouldn’t be super surprised if Country Comfort is renewed for season 2. Netflix has done that with shows like that in the past, but it’s going to be a close call.

We’ll let you know more about Country Comfort season 2 when we find out. Stay tuned for more Netflix renewal and cancellation news.

Is Dad Stop Embarrassing Me season 2 happening?

What we’re expecting: Renewed

Dad Stop Embarrassing Me stars Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier. The Netflix original series just premiered on Netflix on April 14, 2021, and it’s already a massive hit for the streaming service.

The Netflix show topped the list of the daily Netflix Top 10 for its opening week and weekend, and it’s still there!

Dad Stop Embarrassing Me is a slam dunk renewal at Netflix. You know Dad Stop Embarrassing Me season 2 is going to happen. It’s popular and good. On top of that, the Netflix show has an incredible star as its lead and a great supporting cast. That’s the recipe to get an easy renewal at Netflix!

We expect that we’ll see Dad Stop Embarrassing Me picked up for season 2 in the next couple of weeks. I don’t even think Netflix will wait a full month to announced the new season of the series.

I might be getting ahead of myself, but we haven’t seen many Netflix comedy hits like this in recent memory. It has all the makings of a super popular series on the streaming.

I hope Netflix keeps working with Foxx, who recently starred in the Netflix hit Project Power. 

Stay tuned for more news about Dad Stop Embarrassing Me season 2 on Netflix.
