To the shock of many, First Kill has been canceled by Netflix just after a single run which means that there would be no Season 2 for the vampire drama series that Emma Roberts executively produced. The news did not sit well with fans and they are now calling #CancelNetflix on Twitter.
Netflix just canceled First Kill and as reported by Deadline, according to sources, First Kill did not reach the threshold of views that led to the decision of the streaming platform not to push through with another season for the series.

In the first 28 days of release, the threshold of Netflix for the hours viewed, First Kill got 100 million hours. Still, it seems that it wasn't enough for the streaming platform resulting to the cancelation of the series.
