Last year’s Halloween-themed cooking show, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell, will not return for a second season on Netflix as it’s been canceled after a single season. Here’s a quick look back at the show and look at why the show could’ve been canceled.
The cooking series was filmed with a twist, it was presented in a story with puppets. Christine McConnell was the host, artist, and baker with a big social media following.
The show came to Netflix on October 12th, 2018, and arrived on Netflix during a very busy month for new Netflix Originals. Netflix also made a particular push for Halloween-based content that month, with most of the attention going towards The Haunting of Hill House, which has had a second season ordered.
We featured the show as one of our hottest picks for the week of October 12th when we said, “The show has a wonderful strange sense of humor that deserves to be appreciated.” adding, “It’s a baking show with a plot.”
On April 2, 2019, the show’s creator and host, Christine McConnell, took to Twitter to announce that the show had failed to get a second season order.
Why was The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell Canceled?
It’s most likely because the show failed to pick up an audience large enough to justify a second season. Another metric Netflix will look into is how well people are “attached” to the show, meaning that they watch all the way through rather than dropping off after an episode or two.
Fan reaction to the cancelation has already been pouring in, with many upset that Netflix has made the decision.
Some have even begun pleading to other networks, such as Hulu or even YouTube, to pick up the show. YouTube would be an interesting new home, given it’s much more suited to the individual channel setup as opposed to Netflix.
