In the programming equivalent of a shruggie emoji with a twirly French mustache, Netflix has renewed Marseille for a second season. The totally-not-just-a-copy-of-House of Cards Gérard Depardieu vehicle is Netflix's first French original series. According to Netflix, Marseille is "being watched well around the world," despite the fact that most reviews of the series have been overwhelmingly negative. Still, Netflix is never one to cancel its own productions. To quote that French classic Moulin Rouge!, "the show must go on!"
