The Teen Vampire Drama Series First murder has been canceled on Netflix. First murder is one of the most recent attempts to capitalize on the vampire genre and is an adaptation of the short story of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Victoria “VE” Schwab. Schwab is an executive producer on First murder alongside Emma Roberts, Karah Preiss, Jet Wilkinson and Felicia D. Henderson. The series received an eight-episode order which was dropped on June 10 and features the story of a teenage vampire deciding to finally make her first kill to cement her place in her family hierarchy. However, the person she decides to kill comes from a family of vampire hunters.
The reason for the cancellation was not given, although Netflix looks at a variety of different metrics to determine if a series is worth renewing. Some of these metrics include the number of accounts streaming the show in its first week, as well as the hours watched. First murder would have had competition from Peacock’s upcoming supernatural series vampire academywhich is set to debut in September.
Sarah Catherine Hook, one of the stars of First murder, hoped a season 2 would happen in June. Talk to The envelopeHook opened towards the end of First murder Season 1 and the excitement around a potential Season 2. While she stopped short of a full guarantee, Hook encouraged fans about the prospect of a renewal in the future.
“I think if you just watch the show and make sure it’s in the top 10 on Netflix so we can get to season two, then I’m pretty sure we can come back,” said Hook. “So turn it on. Everyone in the world, just put it on your TV and you’ll be fine. We’ll be back. Don’t worry.”
