Although the popular streaming platform Netflix is known for producing some incredibly high quality original content, especially these days, it’s not uncommon for the streaming service to simply cancel projects despite their critical successes. Now one more popular Netflix series has been announced for such a fate – the original show Marianne. As it turns out, fans of Marianne must now deal with the series’ cancelation and that we will not be getting a second season.
Marianne creator, writer, as well as director Samuel Bodin revealed the sad news via his Instagram account. He explained to fans that Marianne would not be getting a second season, and although he is both sorry and sad, he does seem to imply other projects are still on the way. Here’s what he stated:
“There won’t be a second season for MARIANNE,” Samuel Bodin begins his Instagram post. “We are very sorry and sad about that. But we will see you in other stories…”
Of course, while it is upsetting for fans of the Netflix original series to learn that Marianne won’t be getting a second season despite its critical success, there is one nice thing about the series ending. Although it would’ve probably been easy to continue it for a second season, and no doubt there had to have been some thought put into the concept, the first season of Marianne thankfully has a solid conclusion and works as its own story.
So although it may be disappointing for fans to see Netflix give up on what could’ve eventually grown into a rather promising several seasons of a modern horror series, it’s nice that the streaming platform gave the storyline a chance at all. And by the sound of things, we can expect series creator Samuel Bodin to spread more of his creative style in other ways.
