The series has been canceled by the streamer after only a single season, Variety has confirmed. News of the show’s swift end comes less than two months after debuted, and on the same day that fellow Jenji Kohan series “Glow” was also given the axe.
“Teenage Bounty Hunters” centered around sixteen-year-old fraternal twin sisters Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini) Wesley who team up with veteran bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) for an over-the-top adventure as they dive into the world of bail skipping baddies and suburban secrets while trying to navigate high school drama – love, sex, and study hall. In addition, Virginia Williams starred both as Debbie Wesley, the twins’ mother, and her twin sister Dana Culpepper.
In the last few months, the list of shows canceled by Netflix after only one season has included mystery drama “The Society,” coming-of-age drama “I Am Not Okay With This,” and puppet series “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.”
“Teenage Bounty Hunters” was created by Kathleen Jordan, who also wrote and co-executive produced. It emerged as part of “Orange Is the New Black” creator Kohan’s multi-year overall deal with Netflix. With this recent flurry of cancelations, she now only has anthology series “Social Distance” still going on the scripted front, and a docuseries in the pipeline on the un-scripted front.
Kohan, Tara Herrmann, Robert Sudduth, and Blake McCormick also served as executive producers on the 10-episode series. The first episode was directed and executive produced by Jesse Peretz.
