The Midnight Gospel won’t be returning to Netflix for a season 2, as it ties into one of 2022’s many cancellations, according to the show’s creator.

Ordered by Netflix in December 2019, The Midnight Gospel went on release on the service in April 2020. The show was created by the Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward and the comedian Duncan Trussell.

While it has received positive reviews from both critics and audiences (it has an 8.2 on IMDb), some reviews saying the series is “funny, clever and surprisingly deep” and others saying the show is “creative, stunning, thought-provoking moody, funny, beautiful, wonderful”.

Though beloved by audiences, the show didn’t set the Netflix top 10 on fire when it was released. According to FlixPatrol, the show was only in the TV top 10 in about 9 countries and performed best in regions like Russia, Ukraine and Bulgaria. It failed to make the top 10 in the United States.

The news of the cancellation came from Duncan Trussell who when responding to a fan said thatThe Midnight Gospel was canceled by Netflix.”

He added that they were hoping for a season 2, saying:

“In my mind there is another season, but the conscious glass ‘decisive’ cube they keep in their catacombs was shaking ‘No more’. And it’s hard to argue with a cube.”

After some comments, he added a PS that read:

“PS I’m so lucky that the folks at Netflix rolled the dice and let us make such a strange show. They were extremely supportive all the time and I will love them forever.”

The show has many parallels with Tuca & Bertie which, we hope to be fair, leftfield is in its craze. That show was revived by HBO Max with its second season set to air in June 2022.

The news of the cancellation comes around a time when Netflix’s in-house animation teams are facing cancellations early in development and generally feel that the golden age of Netflix animation is now over.

Among Netflix’s current ongoing roster of adult animated shows include: Big mouth extended through season 7, Chicago party auntFrom the insideand Human resource department† Upcoming projects include: Agent KingEntergalacticfarzarand mulligan
