Jupiter’s Legacy Star Says Season 2 Would Have Been Dark
Yes, so Jupiter’s Legacy was effectively cancelled by Netflix. However, one of the show’s stars recently revealed that Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 was going to be fun but also pretty dark.
The star in question was Josh Duhamel and he revealed this during a recent interview with CinemaBlend.
He was one of the show’s main stars and I’m pretty sure that he was really upset about the show’s cancellation.
The first season did end up being something of a disaster for Netflix.
It cost the streamer almost $200 million to make, which is a huge expense for a Netflix TV series.
It also didn’t do very well with audiences, and critics really didn’t like the show all that much.
Even our very own Clint Baker didn’t love it, and he tends to like most things.
Jupiter Legacy Season 2 was going to be dark according to one of the show’s stars
That said, Duhamel revealed that Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 was going to be much darker than the first season.
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
You know, it’s just disappointing, I’m not gonna lie. We all worked very hard on that and promoted it very hard and thought we made a really good show, and I think [with] the audience, it performs so well and continues to do really well. We were a little bit surprised by it not getting renewed. For me, I never saw it going more than two or three seasons because that would have fulfilled whatever graphic novels were written for it. And that second season was going to be so much fun because it had the makings of this modern tragedy where some pretty dark stuff happens to The Utopian. And I was excited creatively to do that. I’m not sure the reasoning for it. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have done it, and I think we all did a really good job on it. But this is the way of the business, you take your lumps. I don’t know if we’re ever going to see him [The Utopian] again. Though it sure would have been fun to do that second season. I think they should do a feature, just encapsulating what would have happened in the second season. Not do the full season, but just a feature. . . . I don’t know if they’ll do it or not, but all those costumes are ready to go. And they weren’t cheap, I’ll tell you that much.
