#222 I Am Not Okay with This
Streaming Service: Netflix
No. of Season: 1
I Am Not Okay with This was quietly renewed for a second and final season by Netflix a month before it premiered on the streamer in February. The streamer, however, reversed its initial decision six months later, officially canceling the series in August even though the scripts for its entire sophomore run were already written.
Series creator Jonathan Entwistle said in an interview that he thinks Netflix canceled I Am Not Okay with This after it found out that making the show COVID-proof would cost a lot of money. “I think I’ve seen a few people talking and the figures are about right: It’s about anywhere between $5 to $10 million per season of television for the PPE, and for the testing, and for the systematic changes with which to make it safer,” shared Entwistle, who concluded that that the series’ cancellation ultimately boiled down to Netflix weighing the cost of the show versus its perceived value.
Based on the comic book of the same name by Charles Forsman, I Am Not Okay with This follows Syd Novak (Sophia Lillis) as she discovers that she has superpowers. The show also stars Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, and Kathleen Rose Perkins.
