The Rain is a Danish post-apocalyptic show that premiered on Netflix in mid-2018, and is currently scheduled for its third and final season. This original Netflix series is set around the premise that a virus carried by rainfall wiped out almost all of humanity, with the story revolving around a group of Danish survivors trying to find safety and perhaps even a cure.
The Rain was shot in Denmark and Sweden, with a current total of 14 episodes (final total is expected to be 21 episodes). The show received mixed reviews from fans, mostly referring to it as “not the best but not horrible”. It was not so well received, which makes it a surprise that the streaming service chose to continue it for a third season.
AMC has officially decided to not go for a third season in Jim Gavin's comedy-drama show, Lodge 49 . The series describes itself as a modern fable about a local ex-surfer who joins an order known as the Order of the Lynx, to get back to his previous life. Lodge 49 was highly reviewed by both critics and audiences, with an average rating of over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite being critically acclaimed, it unfortunately didn't catch the required attention to keep running.
AMC put out a statement regarding the death of the show, and tried its best to eulogize it: “We are so proud to have had Lodge 49 on our air,” the network continued, “This wonderful show gave audiences fresh and unforgettable characters in a world that did not exist anywhere else on television.”
Ashton Kutcher's popular sitcom, The Ranch , began right after the actor finished working on the Two and a Half Men show, which saw him replace a problematic Charlie Sheen. The Ranch is an eight-part series with a total of four seasons, each episode is named after American country singers, with a total of 20 episodes per season.
The popular show was renewed in late 2018 by Netflix for its fourth and final season, despite the series receiving only average reviews. The date of the show's 8th and final part (which is the second half of season four) is still unknown, but expected to arrive sometime in 2020. The 8th part will mark a total of 80 episodes for the series, making it the longest running, half-hour long original Netflix series.
Lucifer hit the ground running when it originally premiered on Fox in January 25, 2016. The show's main character, Lucifer, is based on a DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg, from Gaiman's iconic 'The Sandman' graphic novel series. Lucifer is centered around Lucifer Morningstar, played by Tom Ellis, who is none other than the devil himself. Lucifer has decided to abandon hell and run a nightclub in Los Angeles, as well as become a consultant to the LAPD.
Lucifer was originally cancelled by Fox after just three seasons, but was resurrected by Netflix just a month later, who ordered two more seasons of the show. Lucifer was quite a controversial show, with the American Family Association launching a petition to stop the show from airing that received over 130,000 signatures. Needless to say, the boycott didn't work. Ironically, this was also attempted by the same organization almost three decades ago when they tried to boycott the Sandman graphic novels which the character is based on.
I Feel Bad
Let's start out by saying this — there's no wonder why a show called I Feel Bad could not make it passed its first season. This horrible name is standing tall somewhere along with 'I Feel Terrible' and 'Life Is Bad'. It's no wonder that NBC's comedy show barely managed to hold its ratings and was down to 2.5 million viewers by the end of its first season. The show centers around Emet, a mother, boss and wife who has to contend with her various faults and personality defects.
I Feel Bad was rated 5.9 out of 10 on IMDb and received very polarized reviews from viewers, calling it either "not funny at all" and "a waste of time" or "my favorite new show", depending on who you ask. The show stars Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Aisling Bea, Zach Cherry, Johnny Pemberton, and James Buckley, and can be watched on NBC.com and Amazon Prime.
