Netflix has come under fire this week after the organisation made the decision to not renew Spinning Out for a second season. The show, which came out shortly after Christmas, focused on a competitive figure skater who wanted to return to the ice following a bad fall, after suffering with bipolar and PTSD.
Kaya Scodelario plays lead character Kat, and she worked closely with the charity ‘Mind’ in order to play her sensitively and spread awareness of mental health issues. Despite the show being niche, it collected quite the fan base and now, they are campaigning on Twitter to keep the show.
The consensus of the tweets show the anger at Netflix, claiming that the show wasn’t properly marketed compared to shows such as Riverdale, You and ‘The Witcher’, which was already renewed for a second season before the first was available to stream.
Netflix have yet to comment on any of these controversial accusations, but over thirty Change.org petitions have been set up in an attempt to save the show.
