News of the cancellation came four months after the superhero action drama from Marvel Television debuted its second season on the streaming service — and just days after Netflix pulled the plug on another Marvel show, “Iron Fist.”

The pair plays platonic best friends who want nothing more than to be accepted by their vain and status-obsessed culture. Despite their sometimes contentious relationship, when push comes to shove, they’ve got each other’s back and they have nobody else to hang out with.
The half-hour mockumentary launched its second season on the streaming service back in September. An individual with knowledge of the situation said other platforms have expressed interest in continuing the series.
Since Season 3 began back in June, the series has seen a steep fall off in its Live + Same Day ratings. This season is currently averaging a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 738,000 viewers per episode, down over 40% in both measures from Season 2.
