First Kill , the vampire-themed young adult series, based on a short story byVictoria “VE” Schwab, has been canceled by Netflix after just one season.
Netflix made the decision based on views, compared to the cost of the first season.
Released on June 10, the series entered the Netflix Top 10 of English-language series, finishing in seventh place with 30.3 million hours of viewing in the first three days.
