With 12 episodes of the comedy-drama arriving towards the end of the year, On The Verge was one of the unexpected pleasures of 2021, but will Netflix get a second batch? According to the show’s creator, Netflix has cancelled the series.
Netflix and Studio Canal collaborated on the comedic series, which debuted on September 7th (a French production company). Julie Delpy, a French-American actress, was the creator of the series. Elisabeth Shue, Sarah Jones, Alexia Landeau, and Mathieu Demy co-starred with Julie in the film.
Season 2 of On the Verge has been renewed by Netflix.
As of April 2022, the renewal has been cancelled.
On The Verge had not received a renewal as of 2022.

Because the show is a co-production, Netflix does not have sole responsibility for its renewal. In actuality, the ball is more in Studio Canal’s court, but if they pass, Netflix will most likely be allowed to pick it up on its own.
Although the majority of the reviews were good, the sheer volume of them is concerning. On IMDb, the series had only a few thousand reviews (2.7k at the time of original publication), indicating that it did not have a large viewership. Indeed, as we’ll see in a moment, the show didn’t fare well according to available analytics.
“Cancelled but they neglected to tell it was cancelled,” Julie Delpy wrote to a fan on Instagram (h/t TeamShue on Twitter).
It’s unclear whether she means Netflix or Studio Canal failed to disclose, but either way, no season 2 is in the works.
On The Verge’s Netflix performance, how did it fare?
Unfortunately, On The Verge only lasted a short time in the Netflix top ten.
It spent ten days in the top ten on American television, earning a total of 33 points. It was in the top ten for seven days in a row.
Outside of the United States, the show only had a little impact in Australia, where it spent five days in the top ten of the television ratings.
On the IMDb’s MovieMeter, which analyses the popularity of films in its database based on traffic, On The Verge only made it to #89 in its first two weeks on Netflix before dropping off.
Given these numbers, it’s unlikely that On The Verge had enough of an impression in the top tens to warrant a second season, at least not if Netflix is paying for it.
