Well, it seems that the two latest series have gotten the axe from Netflix, as Partner Track and The Imperfects won’t be returning for second seasons. They remained in the Top 10 for around three weeks but have not really pulled in a massive audience worldwide with Partner Track only debuting at #4 and The Imperfects at #3. Without any clear growth in the following weeks, the streaming service wasn’t going to bring back the franchises for more entries.
The big surprise is Partner Track, as it ended on a big cliffhanger that there were expectations for the show to perform and it was produced with a more modest budget; which Netflix keeps a close eye on to ensure their return on investment. Arden Cho had the leading role in the series but will remain with Netflix to work on other projects alongside series creator Georgia Lee. She’ll return in the upcoming live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series, which has high expectations set by Netflix to become one of their next big series.
The Imperfects explored a trio of unlikely powered individuals as they try to find a way to heal their monstrous new abilities. The series starred Rhianna Jagpal, Morgan Taylor Campbell, and rising star Iñaki Godoy in the lead roles. The latter is also set to return for the upcoming live-action One Piece series, which also has high hopes to become a mainstay on the platform given the success of the original manga series.
