Netflix

Netflix’s LGBTQ+ teen vampire series First Kill has been cancelled by the streaming giant after just one season.

The story follows Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook), a teenage vampire who has to make her first kill in order to join her powerful family.

She swiftly sets her sights on Calliope (Imani Lewis), who just so happens to be the descendant of a long line of vampire hunters.

“Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for,” the series synopsis states.

First Kill also stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Aubin Wise, Gracie Dzienny, Phillip Mullings, Jr. and Jason R. Moore.

However, despite the show’s dedicated following, it will not be returning for a second season.

Dominic Goodman, who plays Apollo in the series, quickly responded to the news: “To all the First Kill fans; I have nothing but love for every single one of you! Thank you all for taking the show in as your own, seeing you all feel seen made all the hard work and hours worth it til the next project.”

First Kill’s cancellation comes just two months after all eight episodes were released on Netflix in June.
