Chambers Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Ended (Last Updated: 04/29/2019)
Despite the fact creator Leah Rachel had been working on writing for a second season, Netflix has opted to end Chambers after only one season.
Netflix did release a statement on the matter and said the following:
We’re grateful to creator and showrunner Leah Rachel for bringing this story to us and to her fellow executive producers Alfonso Gomez Rejon, Steve Gaghan from Super Emotional, Winnie Kemp and Wolfgang Hammer from Super Deluxe, and Jennifer Yale. We’re also thankful to the tireless crew, and to our incredible cast, especially Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn and talented newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose
While Netflix failed to acknowledge why the series has been canceled it’s not hard to speculate why. Critics were not very responsive to the series not to mention it even received criticism by an organ donor organization due to its misrepresentation of transplantation.
There certainly was a fan following behind Chambers, but sadly many of these fans will be vexed by this news.
How have subscribers reacted to the cancelation?

Chambers finally made natives feel represented and included, broke negative stereotypes, and made history with @sivanalyrarose being the first female Native lead for a television series. We all know why it wasn’t “received” well by an industry that thrives off of token diversity. https://t.co/tYsMmTp2HN

@netflix you really cancelled #Chambers. The only time native kids like me have EVER seen ourselves represented. That was something special and you stole it. It wouldve been a successful show but you never even gave it a chance. #savechambers
