First Kill Showrunner Blames Netflix For Cancellation

Another series to get the ax from Netflix was First Kill, a vampire series that surrounded teenagers within the LGBTQ community. Although gaining a following, the company decided to cut the show due to low numbers. With only one season, showrunner Felicia D. Henderson seemed to place the blame on Netflix and their marketing. “The art for the initial marketing was beautiful. I think I expected that to be the beginning and that the other equally compelling and important elements of the show — monsters vs. monster hunters, the battle between two powerful matriarchs, etc. — would eventually be promoted, and that didn’t happen.”

Happy to even have a chance to tell her story, Henderson thanked Netflix, “they licensed the IP, paid for a pilot script, and gave it a healthy production budget. The creative team was very supportive when we were shooting the show under harrowing conditions— before there were ‘vaccines for all’ in Atlanta, a very overcrowded production hub.”

Still stunned by the notice, Felicia D. Henderson admitted to hoping for more seasons due to its strong character and story. “It has something for everyone — strong women leads, supernatural intrigue, an epic, Shakespearean battle between warring families, and a prominently featured Black family in the genre space, something Black viewers crave and a general audience needs to be treated to.”
