Netflix Cancels 'Seven Seconds' After One Season

Almost two months after the drama debuted on the streaming service, Netflix has decided to cancel its original drama series Seven Seconds after one season. The 10-episode season debuted on February 23, 2018.

The drama starred Clare-Hope Ashitey, Beau Knapp, Michael Mosley, David Lyons, Russell Hornsby, Raúl Castillo, Patrick Murney, Zackary Momoh, Michelle Veintimilla and Regina King.

Veena Sud created the drama. She executive produced with Gavin O'Connor, Lawrence Bender, Kevin Kelly Brown, Alex Reznik and Dan Nowak. Fox 21 Television Studios, KMF Films and Bender Brown Productions produced.

The drama was envisioned as a season-long anthology with the story expected to change with each season while featuring a new set of characters. As such, the first season had a closed-ended conclusion and will compete at the Emmy Awards in the limited series categories.

"We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of Seven Seconds," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Originals, Netflix. "Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, standalone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come."
