Q-Force would not be returning with a second season! The animated Netflix series has not been renewed after the first season by the streaming giant. More details on the cancellation of the adult series follow in the subsequent sections.
Series Called Off After First Season
Matt Rogers, one of the writers and voice actors on the adult animated show confirmed the development on the podcast Attitudes! Talking about the show, he said, “It did not get a second season”. However, he added that he was proud of the show and it did a good job at representation.
Rogers also revealed that the first season would keep streaming on Netflix. “The people who loved it, really loved it. The good news is that it will always be on Netflix. It did not get a second season but, I feel like the fact is that it is out there, and … it’s really close to my heart,” he added.
The host of the podcast, Erin Gibson, predicted that in the future, the show might return in some form, as Tuca and Bertie went on to premiere on HBO Max after being canceled by Netflix. The first season of the show, comprising 10 episodes, dropped on Netflix in September 2021. Since then there was no confirmation on the renewal or cancellation of the show.
The Show Featured Some Big Names From Hollywood
The first season of the show featured some big names as the voices of the characters. These included David Harbour of Stranger Things, Sean Hayes of Will & Grace and Wanda Sykes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. It also starred Gary Cole, Patti Harrison, Laurie Metcalf, Matt Rogers and Gabe Liedman.
The plot revolves around Queer Force (Q-Force), an organization of undervalued LGBT superspies, and is centered on Steve Maryweather (also known as Agent Mary), a gay secret agent inspired by James Bond, as they struggle to prove themselves on personal and professional adventures.
The show has been heavily criticized for its stereotypical representations of the LGBTQ+ community since the first trailer was unveiled in August 2021. This did not improve much once the show aired in September. It’s unclear whether this was one of the reasons behind its cancellation.
Netflix Has Already Canceled More Than 10 Shows in 2022
Netflix, so far, has canceled more than a dozen shows this year, including Q-Force, as it continues to lose its subscriber base. Q-Force is the sixth Netflix show in 2022 to be canceled just after the first season.
Q-Force faces a similar fate as Adventure Beast, which debuted a month after it and will not return for future seasons. Another LGBTQ-focused adult animation series, Super Drags, was similarly discontinued after a single season.
The next-in-line LGBTQ+ based animated series on Netflix is Dark End: Paranormal Park. It would be interesting to see if the show would finally have a different fate than its predecessors, and go on for more than one season.
