There's unfortunate news for fans of the brand new drama series because the first season will be its last. The show premiered on New Year's Day and got pretty impressive feedback from viewers online. But it seems that wasn't enough to keep the cameras rolling because Netflix Canada's Spinning Out got cancelled after its first season.
A little over a month after it dropped, Deadline reported that "Netflix has cancelled [the] competitive figure skating drama."
The news outlet wrote that this decision is "consistent with Netflix’s practice of evaluating a month's worth of viewership data" before choosing to renew or cancel a series.
The drama has some ties to Canada since it was filmed in and around Toronto including Blue Mountain Resort, Teen Ranch Ice Corral, and Mississauga's Wally's Restaurant. Professional Canadian ice skaters, Evelyn Walsh, Trennt Michaud, and Dylan Moscovitch were used to stand in as stunt doubles for the lead characters.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that the drama was created by former competitive figure skater Samantha Stratton.
The 10-episode series stars Kaya Scodelario, Willow Shields, Evan Roderick, David James Elliot, Sarah Wright Olsen, and January Jones.
IMDb notes that Scodelario and Shields play half-sisters Kat and Serena Baker, and Jones plays their mother, Carol Baker. Both Carol and Kat battle bipolar disorder.
Lead character Kat is a competitive figure skater who takes a nasty fall and turns to pair skating to keep her career going. She ends up being paired with bad-boy Justin Davis (Roderick) and finds out a strongly kept secret that she fights to keep hidden.
Just a day after its premiere, some Twitter users were raving about how much they enjoyed it and recommended that others watch it.
On IMDb, Spinning Out received a 7.8/10 rating and it earned a 90% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and 63% on the Tomatometer.
