Netflix’s acclaimed supernatural detective series “Lockwood & Co.” has been canceled after a single season that debuted in January.
The series is based on Jonathan Stroud’s young adult novels of the same name and was developed by “Attack the Block” filmmaker Joe Cornish. Netflix was reportedly very pleased with the show creatively, but its viewing numbers just weren’t enough for a second season green light.
Ruby Stokes starred as Lucy Carlyle, a teenage ghost hunter with a tragic past who teams up with Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) and George Karim (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) to form a ghost-busting agency dealing with deadly ghouls.
That’s not the only show to be axed today. ABC is slicing through its dramas with freshman series like the Hilary Swank-led “Alaska Daily” and the Milo Ventimiglia-led “The Company You Keep” both getting the chop after single seasons.
In addition, David E. Kelley’s mystery drama “Big Sky” has been axed after three seasons. These mark the first cancellations ABC has made this season. Others like “A Million Little Things” and “The Goldbergs” have already announced their official endings.
That leaves the fate of four ABC series – “The Conners,” “Home Economics,” “Not Dead Yet” and “The Rookie: Feds” – yet to be determined.
