In a surprise twist, The Society will not be returning, despite it's season two renewal shortly after it was released. Meanwhile, fans of I Am Not Okay With This had been waiting for news on the show for a while now, but according to Deadline, scripts have already been written and the series was on track to return.
"We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This," Netflix said in a statement to Deadline. "We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to 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 at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world."
Deadline also reports that The Society's large cast and their schedules made it difficult to know whether or not they would be able to film a season two after it was pushed back due to COVID-19. They also note that both shows ended up with some budget increases, but it was not revealed why and how much it was bumped in comparison to their previous seasons.
Both shows ended in major cliffhangers. The Society, which revolved around a group of teenagers who wake up in an alternate version of their town, was likely going to answer more questions about their whereabouts in the second season. I Am Not Okay With This, which followed a young teenager as she discovered her sexuality and telekinesis powers, also left viewers with questions about a mysterious character who was not revealed, but hinted to have a big part in season two.
