Netflix crime drama, ‘Seven Seconds,’ has been hailed one of its most daring projects yet. Lauded by critics for its daringness to address the United States’ ongoing concern of police brutality and race relations, the series brought some seriously hard-hitting topics to the forefront of its conversation.
Led by Emmy-winning actress Regina King and Emmy-nominee Veena Sud, the program (which premiered in February 2018) may have been greeted with acclaim, but murmurs quickly rose indicating it probably would not be picked up for a season 2.
Netflix silenced the rumors today by confirming what fans feared was true:
Releasing a statement to our buds at S&A, Netflix revealed:
“We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of Seven Seconds. Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, stand-alone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content.
Reports have it, despite the cancellation, the streaming giant still intends to submit the show in the category of “Limited Series – Drama” for Emmy consideration.
