Netflix Original “Seven Seconds” Will Not Be Getting a Second Season

Netflix will not be renewing their Original Series “Seven Seconds” for a second season, according to a report in Variety. The show centred around a white police officer who accidentally hit and killed a black teenager resulting in an a city-wide explosion of racial tension. The show has received generally positive reviews (and a New On Netflix rating of 80%) and will still be entered into the Emmy’s as a limited series.

“We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of ‘Seven Seconds,’” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix. “Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, stand-alone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come.”

A number of commentators are also saying it was a well-done, complete story so doesn’t really need another season. Perhaps we’re just used to American series going on forever – maybe it’s time for a change?
