The American supernatural teen drama series First Kill has been cancelled on Netflix after one season. Season one premiered on June 10, 2022, on Netflix. According to Netflix, the renewal/cancellation decisions come down to viewing versus cost. First Kill, which did not have the staying power of most Netflix hits, still did not meet thresholds for viewing and completion of episodes.
First Kill Season 2 Release Date
First Kill created by Victoria Schwab for Netflix has been canceled due to low viewership and the streamers are not moving forward with the renewal. First Kill was based on a short story by Schwab. The plot follows, “It’s time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among her powerful family of Legacy vampires, matrilineal direct descendants of Lilith who chose to be bitten by the Serpent in the Garden of Eden. Juliette sets her sights romantically on a new girl in town named Calliope, but is surprised when Calliope – who shares her romantic feelings – proves to be a monster hunter from The Guardian Guild. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.”
First Kill streamed on weekly Top 10 for English-language TV series with its first three days of release, ranking No. 7 (No. 3 non-Stranger Things title) with 30.3M hours viewed. It peaked at No. 3 in its first full week of release with 48.8M hours viewed, only behind Stranger Things 4 and Peaky Blinders Season 6, and spent one more week in the Top 10 before falling off. The series easily cleared 100M hours viewed in its first 28 days of release.
