Although there has been no official renewal, I hear dramatic comedies I don’t agree with that had been quietly picked up for a second season, scripts had been written and it was on track to go into production.
The society was renewed last summer for a second season, which was scheduled to premiere in late 2020. I’ve heard that the delayed season contemplates the potential start of filming next month.
According to sources, the uncertainty around the production dates and the balance of availability of a large distribution such as The society, coupled with unforeseen budget increases due to COVID have led to decisions on The society and I don’t agree with that, which had been both well received by critics and fans alike and had strong support at Netflix.
“We made the difficult decision not to move forward with the second seasons of The society and I don’t agree with thatNetflix said in a statement to Deadline. “We are disappointed to have to make these decisions due to the circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry of 21 Laps Entertainment for I don’t agree with that; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The society; and all the writers, actors and crews who have worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.
This is something we’ll likely see more of, as the multi-month Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logical blockage as you attempt to ease all the shows hit by the production shutdown while also mitigating the higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 security protocols. and losses due to the pandemic. Streamers and tech companies in general have been better positioned than traditional media companies to handle the financial impact of the pandemic.
Created by Chris Keyser and with Kathryn Newton, The society is described as a modern approach Lord of the Flies. He follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town with no trace of their parents. Their new-found freedom will be fun… but it will also be very dangerous. As they struggle to figure out what happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they are to survive.
The cast includes Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex Fitzalan, Grace Victoria Cox, Emilio Garcia Sanchez and Olivia Nikkanen. The Showrunner Keyser executive produced alongside Marc Webb.
Co-created by Jonathan Entwistle and Christy Hall based on Charles Forsman’s graphic novel, I don’t agree with that is written by Hall and directed by Entwistle. It’s about a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school, while grappling with the complexities of her family, her burgeoning sexuality, and… mysterious superpowers that are only just beginning to awaken deep within her.
Entwistle and Hall are executive producers with Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry of 21 Laps.
