Netflix Canceled "Blockbuster" After One Season


Netflix Canceled “Blockbuster” After One Season


Blockbuster, a brand-new comedy series on Netflix, will not be returning for a second season. The choice is not unexpected. After premiering on November 3, the single-camera workplace comedy starring Randall Park had a quiet run and never made it into the weekly Top 10 on Netflix.

Comedy shows are already at a disadvantage because their episodes are only about half as long as their drama/dramedy counterparts (since Netflix uses hours viewed as a rating metric). Irony abounds in Netflix’s decision to pick up the series because the company started out as a movie rental upstart that almost got destroyed by dominant giant Blockbuster Video before turning the tables and driving the latter out of business.

Park, Melissa Fumero, Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, Olga Merediz, JB Smoove, and Kamala Fairburn starred in Blockbuster, which was created by, written by, and served as executive producer and showrunner for Vanessa Ramos. Timmy Yoon (Park), a dreamer of analog living in a 5G world, was the main character.

Timmy and his staff members, including his longtime crush Eliza (Fumero), the battle to stay relevant after learning they are running the last Blockbuster Video in America.

The series’ executive producers David Caspe and Jackie Clarke wrote it in addition to Ramos. John Fox and John Davis both served as EPs for Davis Entertainment. The production company for the show was Universal Television, a unit of Universal Studio Group.

Netflix has had success in comedy with programs like Cobra Kai, The Upshaws, Never Have I Ever, and Emily in Paris, though the majority of its biggest hits have been dramas and limited series.

That 90s Show, the On My Block spinoff Freeridge, Rob Lowe’s Unstable, Michelle Buteau’s Survival of the Thickest, The Vince Staples Show, and season three of Girls5eva, which transferred from Peacock to Netflix, are among the upcoming half-hour offerings.
