Well, that was…fast. Turn Up Charlie, Netflix’s comedy starring Idris Elba has been canceled after debuting its first season just last year.
“Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season. We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects,” the streaming giant said in a statement.
The story wasn’t at all far-fetched, (Idris has been a DJ for over 30 years, using stage names, DJ Big Driis and Big Driis the Londoner), so it’s hard to asses why the show won’t return. And if you haven’t seen the 47-year-old in action, here’s a look back at his set from Elrow London.
