Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

Two more children’s series at Netflix have ended after their second seasons. Kong: King of the Apes and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan and Jane have both ended and therefore won’t be coming back to Netflix for season 3. 

Let’s now take a look back at the two shows, how they came to be and when the previous seasons have released before.

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan and Jane released two seasons on Netflix with the first arriving back in January 2017 and the second season in October 2018.

The series is based on the 1912 novel which was most famously adapted into the 90’s Disney movie and also got a live-action movie in 2017 too.

This series sees Tarzan saved from a plane crash and subsequently get supernatural powers and joins with Jane to save the jungle.

The second show is Kong: King of the Apes. The series is also based on a popular character known as King Kong. The character has seen many adaptations over the years including the 2005 movie and seen three animated series produced too.

The first season dropped all the way back in April 2016 with the second season releasing back in May 2018.

Why have both shows ended? Officially, we don’t know. It’s worth noting both series split audiences straight down the middle with both in the 5 to 6 range on IMDb at the time of publishing. The most common reason Netflix decides not to renew shows is because of falling viewership that doesn’t justify the cost in producing new seasons.

Both series are produced and distributed by 41 Entertainment who have produced a myriad of titles for Netflix including the likes of Skylanders Academy (which has also been announced to be ending after season 3) and Super Monsters which just got announced to have an October 2019 release date.
