However, that development was expected to be made for another streaming platform Quibi.

And ever since this has become official, Roku hasn’t even acknowledged the spinoff series.

The upcoming movie is expected to follow up a story of a teenage girl who has just witnessed the murder of her Brother and the subsequent cover-up by the authorities.
