It’s been revealed that Netflix has cancelled V-Wars and October Faction after both shows just got one season and I’m not sure it was the right decision.
This news was revealed via The Hollywood Reporter who revealed that Netflix opted to cancel two of IDW’s three produced drama series.
The third of these shows was Locke & Key, yet that series was renewed for another season.
They’re all based on comic book properties, however, V-Wars and October Faction didn’t seem to connect with people as much as Locke & Key did.
I’ve watched both Locke & Key Season 1 and October Faction Season 1.
I will admit that Locke & Key is miles better than October Faction.
That said, I thought there was potential in both shows and October Faction could have ended up being very interesting.
V-Wars and October Faction cancelled before their time
I haven’t watched V-Wars Season 1, yet I was planning to and I think I still will even though it’s now been cancelled.
I like the idea of Netflix making more shows based on comic book properties.
Hopefully, these cancellations don’t mean that Netflix is done doing these sorts of shows.
Locke & Key’s success and popularity should be proof that they do work.
Netflix is also in the process of making series’ based on Mark Millar’s comic book universe, Millarworld.
I do hope that shows will still go ahead.
What do you make of this news?
