From the same creator as The End of the F***ing World, Charles Forsman, as well. It's like they checked all the boxes: superpowers (though more Carrie-like than superhero), 80's, stars of IT, etc. Hopefully it's decent.

Was interested based on the creators of TEOTFW and the first minute of the trailer... and then "powers". Ugh. Enough already.

Not had so far, 5 of 7 episodes in, but with them ranging from 19-28 minutes, wouldn't it have been easier just to make a movie and if it was successful then a sequel?

Yeah, I'm not sure why they wouldn't just edit this down and have made it a movie. It definitely has the look and editing style of The End Of The ****ing world. But it doesn't have the heart or cleverness of that show.

Watched four episodes last night and I've been enjoying it. The series plays it light on the super powers and heavy on the teenage characters' wit and angst. If neither aspect appeals to you, skip this show.

I was surprised by how short it was. Maybe it was originally a movie as seven 20-minute episodes isn't a lot. It could've easily been fleshed out a bit to 10 episodes.

I just binged this today and really liked it. It blended the 'superpowers' premise with the teen angst tropes pretty well. I really liked The End of the F**king World by the same director and this has a similar look and tone. The songs used in both series are good, too.

That scene at the dance at the end was predictable but still awesome.

Just wrapped this one. It was ok. It's not too much of a time investment. If they made a second season I'd probably watch it.

I thought it was good but too short. Good for me because I’ve been laid up from the back surgery.

I enjoyed this. I'll definitely watch another season, should it happen.

Canceled.

https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/the...mpression=true
“I Am Not Okay With This” had been renewed after its first season aired back in February, but its renewal had not been announced. “The Society” had been picked up for a second season last July. The team behind “I Am Not Okay With This” had already begun work on writing a second season.

According to an individual with knowledge of the decisions, both shows were well liked internally at Netflix in addition to the critical acclaim they received upon release, but the plug was pulled on both due to the uncertainty around when they could begin production due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic also leading to added budget increases for health and safety reasons.

Wow, so they liked it enough to renew it but then cancelled because of COVID uncertainty. I wonder just how many projects this is going to end up affecting.

Bummer I liked this and was looking forward to see where it went after the finale.

Is it reasonable for me to say that I am not okay with this decision?

Wow. I would've probably watched second seasons of both as well.
