Netflix Cancels ‘American Vandal’

Netflix continues to be in a cancellation mood. American Vandal just received the axe, joining Marvel’s Iron Fist, Marvel’s Luke Cage and Orange Is The New Black which have all been sent to the television graveyard.

“American Vandal will not return for a third season,” the streaming service said 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 was a mockumentary poking fun at true-crime series Making A Murderer and Serial. It centered on teen documentarians Peter Maldonaldo and Sam Ecklund who investigated vandalism acts at high schools. The first season received a Peabody Award and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or a Dramatic Special.

There is a glimmer of hope for fans. Reportedly, the producing studio CBS TV Studios is shopping around the series to other potential buyers.
