The mockumentary will not return for Season 3.
October 26, 2018
A year to the date of renewing American Vandal for Season 2, Netflix has cancelled the satirical series, which returned for its sophomore run just last month. That makes it the fourth original series on the streaming service to get the ax in the past two weeks.
Told in a mockumentary style, each season of American Vandal focused on a school-related prank that had far-reaching consequences. The show never really generated a large amount of buzz, but did garner its share of critical acclaim for its comedic, yet thought-provoking, take on recent popular true crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer.
American Vandal joins Marvel's Iron Fist and Luke Cage, as well as comedy All About The Washingtons, on the list of recent Netflix cancellations. Though while the streamer has cut more shows than usual this month, it has been handing out renewals as well; Atypical, Elite, and Ozark were all picked up for another season in October.
