* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Despite positive critical and audience reception, it was not renewed until a couple months after its premiere; as it was, Spring 2020 was the earliest time to accommodate filming. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in shooting being suddenly delayed ''just a few days'' before it was scheduled to begin. The show was originally planned to begin shooting again in the fall, but Netflix abruptly cancelled the show instead. It's speculated that the increased production costs due to COVID-19 combined with the show's large cast put it high on Netflix's cancellation list. None of this, however, was apparent to the cast and crew so the decision came off as a ''huge'' shock to both them and audiences. While some saw the show as a simple victim of pandemic circumstances, many more blamed the delay in renewing the show, as well as Netflix's tendency to constantly start new original series (meaning ''The Society'' had to compete for budget with many shows that haven't even premiered).
