“American Vandal will not return for a third season. We’re very grateful to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix and to the fans and critics who embraced its unique and unconventional humor.”
The news comes after Netflix canceled Marvel series Iron Fist and Luke Cage after both aired their second seasons.
But fans shouldn’t be completely worried. This might not be the last we will see of Peter Maldonado and Sam Ecklund.
CBS TV Studios, which produced the series, has already received multiple incoming calls from buyers about potentially saving the series with a third season somewhere else, EW has learned.
That would be a first for a Netflix series, especially after the platform has become known for picking up series that would not get greenlit elsewhere.
The first season, which aired in September 2017, focused on an investigation at a Southern California high school into who drew dicks on 27 cars in the parking lot.
Jimmy Tatro played Dylan Maxwell, who was accused of spray painting the genitalia at the beginning of the series.
The second season relocated to an elite private high school in Washington, and centered on who was behind a series of pranks involving laxatives by someone calling themselves the “Turd Burglar.”
The series was created by Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda. Dan Lagana executive produced the series alongside Joe Farrell for Funny or Die and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3Arts.
