I’m genuinely heartbroken by this cancellation. Never have I ever felt so seen and so safe while watching a TV show. Justice Smith was phenomenal as Chester. I was so excited to see where things would go in an eventual season 2. HBO Max has marketed this show so poorly. So frustrating.
There’s a petition going around to get the show picked up by another streaming service. Probably not gonna do anything but still, sign it if you can: https://www.change.org/p/netflix-savegeneration?redirect=falseJuly 2, 2021 at 7:41 pm #1204327624
The show is a bit jarring at first and it takes its time to find its footing but once you get used to its tone, outlandish characters and weird quirks, it becomes very enjoyable.
I wish Justice Smith was a serious contender for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at this year’s Emmys because he is utterly fantastic as Chester. He’s tapping into a side of himself he never had the opportunity to express before on screen and the amount of confidence and vulnerability he’s able to bring to his character at the same time is impressive.
Please give this gem a chance. I hope it gets renewed for a season 2.
