Over the last few years, Netflix has positioned itself as one of the most important companies, especially in its early days when there wasn’t as much competition. Despite the emergence of new options for viewers, they were always able to stay at the top, although not all their bets went well. An example of this was reflected today after cancellation of one of its most recent projects, which only lasted one season.
We’re talking about “Jupiter’s Legacy,” a series based on comics created by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely , which generated a lot of expectation before its premiere, but then didn’t achieve the expected results from the streaming platform. For this reason, the writers decided to make the drastic and final decision to not continue with this story, as they communicated through Twitter.
“Considering where we’re going next, we’ve made the difficult decision to let our incredible cast out of the show as we continue to carefully develop all the realms of the ‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ saga,” Millar wrote on the aforementioned social network. In this way and after achieving a discreet audience level , the series that Netflix premiered on May 7 will have no more seasons.”
Mark Millar also spoke with the Deadline site about this determination they made in conjunction with Netflix, and there he slipped the possibility of making a new production in the future: “We’re sure we’ll come back to it later.” The cast of the series consists of Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Andrew Horton, Elena Kampouris, Mike Wade and Matt Lanter.
Beyond this “failure,” Netflix is preparing to release a large number of series and movies in June. Among the great productions that will be on the platform stands out “La Casa de las Flores – ‘The House of Flowers’ “, the film that will continue the story of the homonymous series that concluded with its third season, but that had a great success. This motivated its creator Manolo Caro to give it a definitive closure in a big way. The premiere will be on the 23rd of this month.
