Cursed Canceled After Season 1 At Netflix

Cursed Canceled After Season 1 At Netflix

Netflix will not renew Cursed for season 2. The show tells the Lady of the Lake’s backstory in the legend of King Arthur and stars Katherine Langford.

Cursed, the Netflix show about the story of King Arthur, has been cursed with cancellation after one season. The show focuses on the Lady of the Lake, a fairy who appears throughout the English legend in different forms. The character has been reinterpreted over the years in various novels, movies, and television shows due to her mysterious backstory.

Deadline reports Netflix has opted not to renew Cursed for season 2. The streaming service did not cite a specific reason for the decision, but the show received mixed reviews and a tepid audience response after its first week. The series stars Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) as Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, during her early years. Devon Tyrell co-stars as Arthur, along with Gustaf Skarsgård, Daniel Sharman, and Shalom Brune-Franklin. The show is an adaptation of the illustrated YA novel, Cursed, by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. Season 1 premiered in full last July with ten episodes.

Netflix is particular about which viewership and ratings statistics it chooses to release to the public, so it’s impossible to know exactly how well Cursed performed on the streaming service. Despite its being based on a YA novel of the same name, it seems that the show either didn’t attract fans of the book or that those readers weren’t fans of the adaptation. The series did occupy the top spot on Netflix’s list of top programs after its premiere, but that’s typical for a well-promoted new release. A contrasting example can be seen in Warrior Nun, another female-led fantasy adaptation that came out around the same time but was renewed for season 2 a month later.
