Word is out that Queer As Folk has been cancelled by Peacock after just one season. Creator Stephen Dunn broke the news on Instragram Friday evening, less than four months after the drama released its eight-episode freshman run.

"It's a rare gift in these times, and in this country, to be able to make a show as fearless and unapologetic as Queer As Folk," wrote Dunn. "This experience changed our lives forever and we're so grateful to have found this incredible new family. But today we received the disappointing news that we're not getting a second season. We know how much it's meant to the fans and while we're heartbroken we won't get to make more episodes, we wanna thank everyone for watching and falling in love with Brodie, Mingus, Ruthie, Noah, Shar, Julian, Daddius, Bussey, Marvin, Judy and Brenda."

A reimagining of the groundbreaking 1999 British series of the same name, the hour-long series follows a diverse group of friends in New Orleans who have their lives transformed by a tragedy that occurs in their community. The show received a positive reception from critics.
