Netflix does typically renew or cancel its shows several months after it airs but that’s not been the case with The Innocents.

The shows Twitter account remained active up until around a month after the show had aired with the last activity on the account being registered on September 18th. This is usually a telltale sign on a show’s future as Netflix will continue pushing updates through its channels on the shows up until they’re canceled.

On the flipside, some of the cast and crew of the show have remained active on Twitter.

Percelle Ascott, who plays Harry on the show has been involved in several other projects since including a rap Youtube series that the creator wants to bring to Netflix.

Percelle’s last mention or interaction with anything regarding The Innocents was back on December 30th liking a fan’s tweet although he hasn’t tweeted about the show since August 29th.

We reached out to New Pictures who serve as the production company for the show for any updates but have yet to hear any response.
