Netflix mockumentary American Vandal cancelled

One of Netflix's most underrated shows won't be back.

Netflix has cancelled mockumentary series American Vandal

The series, which was a parody of true crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer, aired 2 seasons in total, with a 3rd apparently being planned before cancellation. 

Netflix has not given a reason for the cancellation, though it is thought it is part of a wider purge of shows that are made by outside production companies.

The streaming service published a statement saying that it was happy with the work done on American Vandal

American Vandal will not return for a third season. We’re very grateful to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix, and to the fans and critics who embraced its unique and unconventional humour.”

This is the 3rd big cancellation from Netflix in as many weeks, with Luke Cage and Iron Fist recently being dropped also. 

It is believed that Netflix is in the process of getting rid of shows it does not produce or control itself, with American Vandal being a co-production between Funny Or Die and CBS.

The creators of American Vandal, Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda have said that they have received offers to pick up the show on other platforms, so it is likely that the series will see another life somewhere else. 

This is the opposite of the fate of a number of network shows which have been picked up by streaming services, such as The Expanse, Lucifer and Brooklyn 99.

You can catch both seasons of American Vandal on Netflix right now.
