One other TV present renewal has been reversed because of the ongoing pandemic. Showtime has introduced that plans for a second season of the On Turning into a God in Central Florida sequence have been cancelled.
On Becoming a God in Central Florida stars Kirsten Dunst with Théodore Pellerin, Beth Ditto, Mel Rodriguez, Ted Levine, Usman Ally, Julie Benz, Melissa De Sousa, John Earl Jelks, Sharon Lawrence, Josh Fadem, Da’Vine Pleasure Randolph, Alexander Skarsgård, and Mary Steenburgen. Happening in a small Florida city close to Orlando within the early 1990s, the present follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimal wage worker at a waterpark. She’s on the lookout for a greater life and is prepared to lie, cheat and con to get it. She works her means up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM), a cultish pyramid scheme that ruined her household within the first place. As Krystal dives deeper into FAM, issues tackle a really critical flip because the enterprise and her actions start to have an effect on everybody that’s near her.
The first season of On Becoming a God in Central Florida averaged a 0.02 ranking within the 18-49 demographic and 185,000 viewers. Regardless of less-than-impressive numbers, the sequence was renewed for a second season in September 2019.
“Final yr, Showtime renewed On Turning into a God in Central Florida however sadly, because of the pandemic, we had been unable to maneuver ahead with manufacturing on the brand new season,” Showtime stated in a press release to THR. “The pandemic has continued to problem schedules throughout the board, and though we’ve made each effort to reunite the forged and crew for a second season, that has develop into untenable. It’s with nice remorse that we’re acknowledging On Turning into a God is not going to return. We lengthen our deepest because of star and government producer Kirsten Dunst, creators Robert Funke and Matt Lusky, showrunner Esta Spalding and their fellow government producers George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Charlie McDowell, the terrific forged and crew, and our companions at Sony Footage Tv.”
The present was produced by Sony TV, an outdoor studio, so Showtime would have needed to pay a licensing payment. The sequence would have been more and more costly to attempt to movie safely throughout the age of COVID-19. In line with sources, the forged has already been paid for season two.
On Turning into a God joins a rising variety of sequence which have been cancelled because of the worldwide pandemic. Different cancelled reveals embrace Evel (USA), GLOW (Netflix), I’m Sorry (truTV), I Am Not Okay With This (Netflix), The Society (Netflix), and Stumptown (ABC).
