Part 2 of No Good Nick is now on Netflix and if you’re wondering whether the series is coming back for part 3 or a full second season we’ve sadly got bad news. The show has been canceled at Netflix after a full first season.
Before we dig into the show’s future, let’s quickly recap. Netflix first ordered No Good Nick back in September 2018 with filming taking place in late 2018 and early 2019.
The series was given a 20-episode first season which was split into two respective parts. Part 1 released on Netflix on April 15th, 2019 and part 2 arrived several months later on August 5th, 2019.
The show is about a young con-artist who gets put with a family she hopes to scam out of money. It’s a strange concept with some even going as far to call it confounding but has grown an audience largely thanks to the show’s key star Sean Astin.
Has No Good Nick been renewed for season 2?
Official renewal status: Canceled (last updated: 09/15/2019)
The show was officially canceled quietly on a Sunday afternoon while Emmy nominations were being announced.
Up until the middle of September, the cast and crew were optimistic on renewal chances.
Sean Astin has given advice on how to get the show renewed for another part and it’s really simple. Watch parts 1 and 2 and share the fact you watch the show.
Want a Season Two??? (WE DO)

David Steinberg who acts as the showrunner for the series has said that “We are so unbelievably proud!” thanking Netflix “for being a place where creative people can flourish and do our small part to help change the world for the better.”
On September 15th, the showrunner released the following statement on Twitter:
To the No Good Nick Fandom,
It’s our sad duty to announce that No Good Nick will not be moving forward with part 3. Making this show has been a life changing experience for us and we couldn’t have asked for a better response from the audience. The messages we’ve received , the fan art, fanfic, all those amazing edits – it has all meant so much to us. Everyone involved in the making of the show is as heartbroken as we are not to be able to continue the story of Nick and the Thompsons.
But we feel that we made the show we wanted to make and we are so proud of the story we told. We want to thank our amazing cast, our incredible crew, and our talent writers for coming together in this collaborative medium to make something new and surprising. Family enteeratinment with complex themes about morality and forgiveness. The world’s first serialized multicam. The first gay kiss on a family show. The first combination of comedy, drama and mystery in a sitcom.
We firmly believe that representation matters. We’ve heard os many inspiring stories about how Jeremy’s coming out touched your hearts and showed the world as it should be. It warms our hearts, too, to know we’ve done a small part to change the world for the better.
Thank you to Netflix for giving us this opportunity to tell ur story. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. But now Nick and the Thompsons (and Jeric!) will have to live on in the imagination of our amazing fandom.
Thank you again for watching and for being such great fans of No Good Nick.
Adding to the Memoriam was Sean Astin who played Ed said: “Making No Good Nick on Netflix was literally a dream come true. My time on the Sunset Gower lot will stay with me forever.”, later adding, “A special show. Gone too soon.”
Could another network save No Good Nick?
Another show that recently got renewal in another location was the revival of ‘One Day at a Time’ who eventually saw a renewal at POP TV. No doubt petitions will soon take place for another network to carry on the work of No Good Nick in the future.
In the meantime, a similar show Alexa and Katie warrants your attention and has been renewed for another 20 episodes due out later this year.
And now, over to you. Do you want to see No Good Nick return for season 3? Let us know in the comments.
