The Innocents almost six months after its initial release has still yet to get a second season order from Netflix. Has the show been canceled or is it being produced without the knowledge of the press? Let’s take a look to see if we can find out what’s going on with The Innocents season 2.
The stylish and unique first season released on Netflix throughout the summer of 2018 to quite a big fanfare. The British series consisted of eight episodes but most importantly, ended with a huge cliff-hanger as we’ll get into below.
We’ll soon be fast approaching six months from when The Innocents was released on Netflix and we’re still without official word from anyone regarding the show’s future.
Is there scope for a season 2?
Absolutely. The first season ended on a huge cliffhanger with Harry being trapped in the car because June had shapeshifted twice leaving his brain in limbo.
Has The Innocents been canceled?
As we’ve stated in our original article on season 2 of The Innocents, Netflix has yet to give the series a second season and that remains the case going into 2019.
However, it’s looking increasingly likely as the months go on that the show will die a quiet death.
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.
On January 4th, 2019, Carly Paradis who was the show’s composer Tweeted an award she had won in November.
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.
