This is the backdrop to Netflix’s gritty teen drama.
Netflix has announced the cancellation of the youth drama Grand Army after the end of a season.
The news that the program has not been renewed has been obtained by Variety Show from the streaming media platform.
The Grand Army debuted on Netflix in October 2020. Loosely based on Katie Cappiello’s 2013 Slut: The Play work. It was created by Cappiello and produced and performed by Gone Girl producers Joshua Donen and Beau Willimon (House of Cards).
According to the diary of the series, the show “stepped into an angry and rising generation. Five students from Brooklyn’s largest public high school face our chaotic world as they fight for success, survival, escape, break free, and conquer the future. .”
Playwright and screenwriter Ming Peiffer (Ming Peiffer) made the allegations after the trailer for the show was posted on Twitter.
“Me and other  writers of color quit the show due to racist exploitation and abuse,” Peffer began.
“The host and creator of the show were irritated and called Netflix HR to say that he was a black writer cutting his hair in the room. Yes, you read it right. Who wants to interview us?

“It’s wild and addictive, but its ruthless plot line piles up, and under the pressure of ambition, the show collapses,” he continued. “From terrorism, sexual abuse, racism to homosexuality, back to the exhausting catch-up game.”
Netflix also recently announced that it will abandon “Jupiter Legacy” after a season. However, the characters of the show will be returned in a different format on the Internet to adapt Miller’s Super Chef series live.
