Netflix’s White Lines has already been dropped by Netflix following its first season on the platform. That was fast, wasn’t it?
The TV Crime Drama landed on the streaming giant back in May and its plot revolved around the clubbers of Manchester and Ibiza––what’s known to be one of the, if not, the wildest party goers in the world. Following Zoe Walker (played by Laura Haddock), a librarian from Manchester, who we saw fly out to Ibiza when her brother’s body was discovered there after 20 years of disappearance.
Axel (played by Tom Rhys Harries), Zoe’s brother, was an up and coming DJ and like all DJs, he dreamt of becoming the world’s greatest.
The show isn’t as hard to follow as most people would’ve expected. In 10 episodes, there have been twists, turns, and flashbacks in the 90s while going all throughout Zoe’s present days in the hopes to find her brother.
Fans of the show have been disappointed with the streaming giant’s decision. After Daniel Mays, who plays Axel’s best friend in the series, Marcus, confirmed that a second installment of the series will not be able to set sail after all.
Mays took it to Instagram, writing:
“Following the reports in the press over the past couple of days,” the actor wrote, “and for all those asking me on here, it’s with a heavy heart I post the #WhiteLines season 2 ship has well and truly sailed.”
“Huge thanks, respect and admiration to @netflix @netflixuk @alexpinaoficial @leftbankpictures and @vancouvermedia_ for the ride of a lifetime.”
“Love to the incredible cast & crew and to all the amazing fans for watching around the globe. Your support for the show meant the world to us.”
“So THANK YOU! Farewell Marcus…….you were my favourite.”
Well, it is with a very heavy heart as well that we receive this news. If there was a series Netflix was supposed to renew, a lot thought that it would be this one. However, the streaming platform thought otherwise, and their decision is what matters. If you do want to speak up, speak up now! Netflix has a tendency to renew series that were originally put on the chopping block.
