Netflix has also canceled “I Am Not Okay With This” which has reportedly started working on its season 2.
The second season of “The Society” was set to premiere in late 2020.
Both the decision is not likely to go down well with the fans as both were equally loved and fans were eagerly waiting for a positive decision. Both the shows ended at a cliffhanger and hinted at exciting season 2 and this is going to make the fans angry as both of them are now ending without any proper conclusion.
Netflix users are not very happy customers this past and current week due to recent decisions made by the streamer, the cancelation of ‘Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj,’ outrage over the sexualization of kids on Cuties poster and now this decision has now made them rethink their Netflix subscription.
