Netflix drops two hit shows due to COVID-19

Netflix has formally dropped The Society and I Am Not Okay With This. The Society had previously been renewed for Season 2 last summer and now with this news, all the fans of The Society are put in shock as the show was all set to commence taping from next month. As for as “I am not okay with this” is concerned, a few reports affirmed that the show, which is based on a graphic novel by Charles Forsman, was provided with the much needed green light for Season 2.

Scripts had already been drafted with the purpose to head into shoot soon. However, Netflix had never officially endorsed that Season 2 was renewed and now it looks like it never will.
