This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix series Boo, Bitch and its renewed or cancelled status. This article contains spoilers.
Boo, Bitch is a Netflix original comedy series, created by Erin Ehrlich (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Lauren Iungerich (On My Block). This eight-part miniseries follows shy student Erika Vu, who purposefully avoids all the high school drama and the party scene throughout her teenage years. She finally attends her first party, with only a couple of months remaining before graduation, only to die on the night in question. With the help of best friend Gia, Erika must navigate through this new, ghostly existence and fulfil her unfinished business in time to ascend to the afterlife. If she doesn’t complete her vital goal then she is destined to haunt the earth as a ghost for eternity.
The series struggles to sustain this supernatural premise, which is painfully predictable and poorly executed. There are multiple plot holes to discuss and a plot twist that people even saw coming from the trailer alone (look at the YouTube comments). Alongside these inconsistencies, the show’s comedy is embarrassingly unfunny and the production value is abnormally low quality, especially for a Netflix backed original. It’s a disappointing series that wastes its more than game cast and a unique concept. This had the potential to be a highly original and talked about YA comedy.
Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series Boo, Bitch – renewed or cancelled status
Boo, Bitch is classed as a miniseries, which means it is highly unlikely that Netflix would renew the series for a follow-up season. The miniseries format is normally a one-off limited series that completes its storyline within the first season’s parameters, with no need for a sequel. Boo, Bitch seemed to do just that, ending with the ghostly teen completing her unfinished business and ascending to the great beyond. Erika got the guy of her dreams and everyone seemed to have made amends by the end of prom. I don’t see where a second season would go and doubt that audiences would be desperate to return to this comedy world any time soon.
I’m going to predict that Boo, Bitch is not renewed. This series looks set to be quite polarizing and has all the makings of a cult show. These types of programmes just aren’t high up on Netflix’s agenda, The OA I’m looking at you. It’s also an unusual time for the powerhouse streaming company, with staff redundancies and talk of an ad-supported tier. I’d be very surprised if the show was renewed, but I have been wrong in the past before. You’d think it would need to be a huge success on the scale of Squid Game to warrant a sequel, although its low budget may appeal to the Netflix financial department. As always, we’ll keep you posted on any updates in the pending renewal of Boo, Bitch.
