“The Armchair” was canceled after just one season on Netflix.
The university satire starring Sandra Oh as Professor Ji Yoon Kim was released on the streaming platform in August 2021 and was not renewed for a second season.
Oh first questioned the second season of The Chair in an interview with Variety in early 2022, saying, “No one called me, so I guess it’s not happening. I would have liked it because I just thought there was so much material there for potential study.
“Since the setting and characters were created… I’m just happy it happened, it was a great experience. But I’m sad that it’s over.”
Showrunner Amanda Peet confirmed the cancellation at TCA earlier this month. “They didn’t take us,” she said. “Sandra and I would like us to be.”
In a four – star review , The Chair NME wrote: “Looking at the challenges facing the academic world in 2021 is eye—opening, thoughtful and— at times- darkly funny, allowing O to lean on his comedic chops with great results.”
Elsewhere, Netflix recently canceled the sci-fi detective series “1899” after one season, which aired last November.
The creators of Baran bo Odar and Yantje Fraise wrote on social networks: “It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that the year 1899 will not be extended. We would really like to complete this incredible journey with the second and third seasons, as we did with “Darkness”. But sometimes things don’t happen the way you planned. That’s life.
“We know it will disappoint millions of fans. But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of this wonderful adventure. We love you. I’ll never forget.”
