Los Angeles, August 3 - It was announced today that the teen vampire series "First Kill," has not been renewed for a second season. Earlier this month, Variety reported that all eight episodes from the first season of the streaming series debuted in early June, almost two months after the series appeared on the platform.
According to sources close to the matter, Netflix is proud of the work that the producers, cast, and crew put in on the series, but ultimately, decision came down to a matter of viewing numbers versus the cost of making the series.
According to Variety, based on the short story by horror writer V. E. Schwab, "First Kill" centered on Calliope and Juliette, two teenage girls who have fallen in love with each other but come from warring families: one belonging to a dynasty of vampire hunters and the other belonging to a family of bloodsuckers.
Since the premiere of the series in the weeks following its release, the series had attracted a loyal following. A tweet confirming the cancellation of the series was sent by series cast member Goodman, in which he expressed gratitude to the show's fans for their support. The following is a quote from Goodman that was cited by Variety: "I have nothing but love for you all! Thank you for taking the show in as your own, it makes all the hard work and hours of effort worth it when you feel seen."
