EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has opted not to pick up a second season of Teenage Bounty Hunters. The news comes almost two months after the series’ Aug. 14 debut on the streamer.
Teenage Bounty Hunters, created by Kathleen Jordan, centered on fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini), a duo looking for more trouble beyond their pristine Southern lifestyle. The twins team with experienced bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) and start bringing in local criminals. The girls balance the hazards of their secret profession with the finer details of high school life including romance, advanced school work and of course, the popular kids. Sterling and Blair work to keep their academic lives and their questionable extracurricular separated.
The show cracked the Nielsen Streaming Rankings Top 10 at #10.
Jordan, Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, Robert Sudduth and Black McCormick executive produced the 10-episode series. Jesse Peretz directed and exec produced the premiere episodes.
Netflix goes straight-to-series on all of its projects, bypassing a pilot stage. Cancelling some series after Season 1 is equivalent to networks passing on some of their produced pilots.
