Blockbuster, a brand-new comedy series on Netflix, will not return for a second season.
The choice is hardly unexpected. The single-camera workplace comedy starring Randall Park briefly ran after its November 3 premiere and never made it into Netflix’s weekly Top 10. Comedy shows already have a disadvantage because their episodes are usually half the length of their drama/dramedy counterparts (because Netflix utilizes hours viewed as a rating criterion).
Park, Melissa Fumero, Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, Olga Merediz, JB Smoove, and Kamala Fairburn appeared in Blockbuster, which was created by, written by, and served as executive producer and showrunner for Vanessa Ramos. The main character was Timmy Yoon (Park), an analog dreamer living in a 5G future. Timmy and his staff members, including his longtime crush Eliza (Fumero), the battle to stay relevant after realizing they are running the only Blockbuster Video in America.
The series executive producers, David Caspe and Jackie Clarke, wrote it in addition to Ramos. Davis Entertainment’s EPs were both John Fox and John Davis. The production company for the ShowShow was Universal Television, a unit of Universal Studio Group.
Netflix has experienced success in comedy with programs like Cobra Kai, The Upshaws, Never Have I Ever, and Emily in Paris, yet the majority of its biggest hits have been dramas and limited series. That 90s shows how the On My Block spinoff Freeridge, Rob Lowe’s Unstable, Michelle Buteau’s Survival of the Thickest, The Vince Staples Show, and season three of Girls5eva. Among the future half-hour, offers are those that have been migrated from Peacock to Netflix.
