Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn, and company won’t be back for a second season of Chambers. The Netflix TV show has been cancelled after one season of 10 episodes. The first season was released on April 26th.
A supernatural horror drama, Chambers stars Sivan Alyra Rose, Lilliya Reid, Nicholas Galitzine, Kyanna Simone Simpson, Lilli Kay, Sarah Mezzanotte, Griffin Powell-Arcand, Marcus LaVoi, Tony Goldwyn, and Uma Thurman. The psychological thriller centers on Native American high school student Sasha Yazzie (Rose), who at just 17 years old suffers a heart attack and receives a transplant from Becky Lefevre (Reid), a seemingly picture-perfect suburban white girl of means. As Sasha starts taking on Becky’s traits, she decides to investigate what’s behind it, in order stop to herself from this unwanted transformation.
The streaming service announced that there wouldn’t be a second season for Chambers in a statement: “Chambers will not return for a second season. We’re grateful to creator and showrunner Leah Rachel for bringing this story to us and to her fellow executive producers Alfonso Gomez Rejon, Steve Gaghan from Super Emotional, Winnie Kemp and Wolfgang Hammer from Super Deluxe, and Jennifer Yale. We’re also thankful to the tireless crew, and to our incredible cast, especially Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn and talented newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose.”
No explanation for the cancellation was offered. However, Netflix didn’t own the series and having name actors like Goldwyn and Thurman typically makes a show more expensive. Those factors, combined with some disappointing reviews from critics and viewers (which likely equated to lower viewership), probably sealed the series’ fate.
