Netflix Puts a Stake in Lesbian Vampire Series ‘First Kill’ After One Season


 

Netflix has driven a stake into “First Kill,” deciding against picking up the teenage vampire series for a second season. The news comes nearly two months after the streamer debuted all eight episodes of the show’s first season in early June.

 

Sources close to the matter maintain that Netflix “is proud of the work that producers, cast and crew put in on the series,” though the decision came down to a matter of viewing numbers versus cost. In other words, take it from a fellow lesbian, it sucked. Not everyone agreed. Enjoy the tears.

 



 

So go cancel Netflix then, precious.

 

Based on a short story from horror writer V. E. Schwab, “First Kill” followed Calliope (Imani Lewis) and Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook), two teenage girls who fall for one another, but come from warring families: one a dynasty of vampire hunters, the other a line of bloodsuckers.

 

 

The series also starred Elizabeth Mitchell, Will Swenson, Aubion Wise, Jason Robert Moore, Gracie Dzienny, Dylan McNamara, Dominic Goodman, Phillip Mullings Jr., MK xyz, Jonas Dylan Allen and Roberto Mendez. Felicia D. Henderson and Schwab executive produced, alongside Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss for Belletrist Productions.

 

And they should all be ashamed of themselves for such a shoddy product.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
