Netflix It has been immersed in a restructuring process for some time to deal with the delicate moment it went through a few months ago. The historic success of ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ has surely been good for them, but now it’s time to talk about bad news, because the platform has decided to cancel the series ‘grendel’ when there was very little left to finish the filming of its first season.
Adaptation of the independent comic created by Matt Wagner in 1982, ‘Grendel’ tells the story of different characters who over time have assumed the name of Grendel, many of them to carry out somewhat questionable activities. A peculiar and different approach to superhero stories that seemed destined to revolutionize this type of series.
She’s not quite dead yet
To be fair, there is still the possibility that it will, since it is true that Netflix has done a job to those responsible for the series by canceling it when it had almost finished recording the eight episodes that make up its first season. The reason is that they have the opportunity to try to sell it to another platform or chainbut it remains to be seen that there are interested parties.
Of course, this Netflix movement does not affect the exclusive agreement it has with darkhorse, the same company behind ‘The Umbrella Academy’. Both companies will maintain a collaboration that means that Netflix has the right to take over the projects they develop before other interested parties can make themselves heard.
It so happens that this Netflix decision is the second cancellation of a series developed by Andrew Dabb for the platform. The other was ‘Resident Evil’, from which we all expected much more. Perhaps that has also played an important role in relation to ‘Grendel’
