Another Netflix docu-series that’s been sitting as pending has now been confirmed to not be returning. The science-based docu-series Connected: The Hidden Science of Everything hosted by Latif Nasser received’t be returning for a second season.
Only 5 episodes of the primary season had been produced in whole, masking surveillance, mud, digits, clouds, nukes, and, better of all, poo. Nasser is a revered Canadian-American researcher and presenter who managed to convey excellently, utilizing a little bit of comedy, how science’s work impacts unusual individuals’s lives.
The present was successful with those that did test it out when it launched in August of 2020, however since that preliminary launch, it has hit a 7.5/10 on IMDb, albeit on just one.5k evaluations.
Sadly, it appears prefer it’s one-and-done for the documentary collection.
Latif was gracious sufficient to speak to me over DM on X (beforehand Twitter) over the previous few years and advised me there weren’t then any plans for an extra season however was hopeful.
More not too long ago, in response to some followers, Nasser confirmed all through 2023 that there have been no plans for a second season, with Netflix successfully canceling the present. In March 2023, Nasser responded to 1 fan:
“Sadly, no season 2 in the works. Working on some other TV stuff but all still in development phase, sadly.”
Nasser replied to a different fan in August 2023, echoing the identical factor, saying:
“I wanted to make season two and had many ideas but alas, Netflix didn’t want to. Have some new TV ideas in the works, but in the meantime check out @RadioLab”
RadioLab is as near a season 2 of Connect on Netflix as you may get
In that final Tweet, Nasser referred to Radio Lab, an internet site and podcast he hosts alongside Lulu Miller. Still lively to at the present time, they produce podcasts on all method of topics, together with arithmetic, pc science, or, as its pertinent to Connected, science, masking biology, chemistry, and physics. No stone is left unturned.
This is one in all a number of reveals we’ve been reporting on all through January 2024 that had been quietly canceled with acknowledgment over the previous couple of years. Earlier this week, we reported that Tribes of Europa wouldn’t return for a season 2 and Oddballs had been quietly canceled and received’t return for a season 3.
