Netflix isn’t going to renew the Netflix Original animated basketball comedy, ‘Hoops,’ after a singular season.
Netflix Original comedy series, ‘Hoops,’ has been tossed to the sidelines after a meager one season. The animated comedy made its debut back in late August where it faced gobs of negative reviews. As with Netflix’s norm, it weighed its costs versus benefits and made the call to can the tepidly-received series before it got another season.
‘Hoops’ told the tale of a high school basketball coach struggling to get through life with a dream – a dream of coaching the NBA. He felt that turning his trainwreck of a team around would be his ticket to his dream. The series had some notable names tied to it. Ben Hoffman of ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ fame created and executive produced the series. Actors like Jake Johnson, Cleo King, Natasha Leggero, Rob Riggle, Sam Richardson, and more were tied to the project.
Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Seth Cohen also helped in the executive production side of things. 20th Television acted as the studio while Bento Box Entertainment took up the animation house role.
Its failure to net a second season isn’t too shocking as Netflix continues to beef up its animated adult comedy lineup with series like ‘F is for Family,’ ‘Big Mouth,’ ‘Disenchantment,’ and more. Not to mention that it still has ‘Entergalactic’ and ‘Agent King’ to look forward to.
