The Baby-Sitters Club Is Out of Business After Two Seasons


Despite winning the hearts of zoomers and their parents alike, it wasn’t enough for the babysitters to escape the dreaded Netflix two-season curse. According to Deadline, Netflix did not order another season of The Baby-Sitters Club. “I have wanted to be a part of the world Ann M. Martin created since I was 7 years old, and for two amazing seasons I actually got to be. It was a dream come true,” Showrunner Rachel Shukert said in a statement. “Although I am heartbroken not to be returning to Stoneybrook for 20 more seasons, I am so proud of the incredible show our amazing cast and crew created and the way it brought joy and comfort to so many when they needed it most.” The series ran for two seasons and was praised by critics. However, the show fell victim to Netflix’s alleged viewership-versus-cost-to-renewal review process, where shows that do not meet a certain standard are canned after two seasons. Other Netflix series that were canceled after two seasons include Sense8, Another Life, Gentefied, and The OA.
