Netflix has decided to cancel ‘Bonding,’ and the show will not return for a new season.
A fourth season of Netflix’s dark comedy series Bonding, which launched in April 2019, has been cancelled.
Rightor Doyle, who wrote the series based on his own experience as a bodyguard to a dominatrix, provided the mature humor.
Zoe Levin, Brendan Scannell, Micah Stock, and Theo Stockman were among the cast members.
The first season of the show naturally sparked criticism on a number of different fronts.
The BDSM community, in particular, was not pleased with the show’s portrayal of them, and the issue was to be addressed in season 2.
Although we don’t have any data, the show definitely had enough viewers to support a second season, despite the uproar.
Episodes for Season 2 have released in January 2021, a year after it was announced in January of that year.
This time around, there was no hoopla attached to its arrival. Beyond altering the bio after the release, Netflix did not engage in any promotion of the show on the show’s verified Twitter page.
Before going dark on February 10th, 2021, the show’s Instagram page did receive some love.
Only about 250,000 people saw the second season trailer, compared to the 1.7 million who watched the first season trailer.
Multiple reports claim that Netflix’s trailer viewership correlates with the number of people who watch the episode itself.
Even worse, Netflix’s top 10 feature, which was launched in March 2020, did not detect the show in the United States.
The fact that Bonding didn’t make the US top ten even the day after its premiere, which is when shows typically see their greatest spike in popularity, is true.
However, Bonding was the first non-family comedy series to be cancelled by Netflix in July 2021, according to Deadline’s official announcement.
However, there is some good news. Rightor Doyle has signed a development deal with Netflix that will allow him to work on future projects.
Bonding appeared out of nowhere and in a manner that could be consumed in a few hours without wasting any time.
The second season, on the other hand, didn’t meet audience’s expectations.
We’ll be updating this site as soon as we hear back from cast and crew members.
Will you be sad to learn that Bonding will not be returning for a third and fourth season?
