“I’m obviously sad and disappointed that Netflix didn’t let the series settle down more, given the enthusiastic, affectionate reception and testimonials from the press and the public, from lots of young people we don’t know. don’t know, who insisted on its freshness. What remains is the pride of having done it with my team, of having enjoyed creating these characters who revealed four magnificent actors” reacted the screenwriter at our colleagues from the Inrocks.

This cancellation comes a few weeks after the announcement of a major recovery plan put in place by Netflix, following the loss of 200,000 subscribers (a first in the history of the platform).
