Netflix Cancels Comedy ‘Turn Up Charlie’

Eight Episodes in Total Were Produced

Netflix has opted against a second season of British comedy “Turn Up Charlie,” starring and created by Idris Elba.

“‘Turn Up Charlie’ will not return for a second season,” Netflix said Monday in a statement. “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.”

Debuting in March 2019, “Turn Up Charlie” starred Elba as a disc jockey who reluctantly becomes the nanny for his famous friend’s daughter. Piper Perabo, JJ Feild and Frankie Hervey also were featured. The series was a co-production between Reich’s London-based Brown Eyed Boy Productions and Elba’s Green Door Pictures.
