For fans who were hoping to see more of Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis as vampire Juliette Fairmont and monster hunter Calliope Burns, there’s not a light at the end of this tunnel.
First Kill was welcomed by many viewers when it was released in June 2022, amassing over 100 million viewing hours within the first 28 days of its release.
However, it wasn’t enough to keep Netflix producing the show as they canceled it after one season.
There are a few reasons that the show might have been canceled, including viewership versus production costs, but not many concrete answers from the streaming giant.
The show was huge in terms of inclusivity, as the primary romance was between two lesbian girls as they discover themselves and their individuality.
This was also one of few moments that a leading character was allowed to say that they were queer on screen, a huge step forward for the LGBT+ community, especially after Netflix’s huge blowouts with Dave Chappelle’s comments targeting trans people.
