Spinning Out Season 2: Why This Netflix Drama Cancelled?

‘Spinning Out,’ created by Samantha Stratton, is an ice-skating teen drama starring Kaya Scodalario and January Jones, among others. Kat Baker, a teenage ice skater who unhappily suffers a terrible accident, is played by Scodelario. When she recovers, she will have the opportunity to restart her career as a couples skater. In the middle of it all, she must conceal the truth that her family has a history of mental illness.

Having saying that, the notion of ‘Spinning Out’ is undeniably significant and emotive. However, it was unable to connect with the public due to its unending melodrama and use of campy narratives to cloak an otherwise delicate subject. It does have some fascinating performances and all of the hallmarks of an adolescent program.

Spinning Out, which premiered in January 2020, featured a unique premise that followed Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario), a gifted figure skater who suffers from PTSD and bipolar disorder. She aspires to compete in the Olympics one day, but many obstacles stand in her way, including her own thoughts. As with almost every other written Netflix original series, the first season concluded with certain significant narrative elements unresolved, implying that a second season was possible. Unfortunately, a month after its release, it was abruptly canceled, according to Deadline.

However, the first season does not conclude on a satisfying note. Because there are so many story arcs, many of them do not reach their conclusion. So, following a mixed reaction to the film’s debut, the obvious question arises. Will there be another installment in the series?

Netflix Hasn’t Disclosed Any Explanation, Although A Lack of Viewers Is Most Likely to Blame

‘Spinning Out‘ season 1 launched on Netflix on January 1, 2020, with a total of ten episodes. However, much to the dismay of viewers, the streamer chose to cancel the program in February 2020. The site does not provide explanations on why shows are canceled. However, in the instance of ‘Spinning Out,’ we consider that the first season did not generate enough viewers in comparison to the production expenditures. And we do know that Netflix does the aforementioned comparison using the first month of watching data on any episode. Another factor might be the mixed reactions to the first season of ‘Spinning Out.’ Perhaps the streamer didn’t watch to try their luck with a title that had started off weak.

Netflix often remains silent when it cancels a series, never actually providing a rationale for the move; nevertheless, like with cable television shows, poor numbers are a safe bet. “Netflix, which goes straight-to-series on all of its shows, evaluates watching (and awards recognition) vs. expense for each show when making a renewal choice,” according to a Deadline piece about the decision not to renew Spinning Out. As a result, there’s a chance that the 10 episodes of Spinning Out didn’t draw enough viewers to warrant the cost of another season.

The “awards recognition” part of the statement is particularly intriguing since it indicates that a program with poor viewership may still be picked up for another season if there’s a chance it’ll win some awards — and lots of bragging rights for Netflix. With such a Tomatometer rating of only 59 percent, it’s possible that the streaming platform simply didn’t find a need to keep the series running.

Netflix doesn’t usually provide viewership figures for its series (unless they perform really well), so there’s no way of knowing how many people tuned in during the first month of its debut. There may be some proof that it wasn’t a lot in this case. A petition was created immediately after the show’s end, asking Netflix to revive it for a second season, and it has just over 73,000 signatures as of this writing. Spinning Out appears little in compared to The Queen’s Gambit, which was allegedly seen in 62 million households, according to The Wrap.

What Could Expect from Spinning Out Season 2 If Ever Happened?

When Kat initially starts skating with Justin in Season 1 of Spinning Out, their instructor Dasha (Svetlana Efremova) feels they won’t be ready for the Olympics track until the following year. Indeed, they appear to have failed at the first hurdle as they finish ninth in their short program at regionals. Kat, on the other hand, decides to discontinue her lithium in order to have more energy and enhance her confidence. She and Justin add harder leaps to their long program to increase their score, which succeeds – but Kat swiftly spirals into a manic episode without her bipolar medicine.

Despite all of the obstacles in their road, Kat and Justin compete in sectionals and look to be in a confident and comfy situation as their performance starts.

Spinning Out Season 2 is unlikely to begin with them having failed to qualify for nationals, thus we should expect to see them moving up the competitive ladder in season 2. We can also anticipate Justin and Kat’s adversaries, Leah (Kaitlyn Leeb) and Gabe (Johnny Weir), to be right there with them as they compete for the opportunity to represent the United States in the Olympics. Will Kat be able to handle the competition’s expectations, or will she have to go off her medicine once more?

There’s also the consequences from Carol whacking Dr. Parker (Charlie Hewson) with a baseball bat. She immediately contacted the police to report an attack, but it wasn’t clear whether she was reporting Parker’s assault on her daughter or her own assault on him. In any case, it would be interesting to see how Serena recovers from her devastating state champs fall.
