After One Season Peacock Has Decided To Cancel The Show “Queer As Folk”

The new iteration of ‘Queer as Folk’ won’t be around for long. Peacock has decided not to continue airing the sitcom Russell T. Davies and Stephen Dunn developed for a second season.

The new version, which debuted on June 9 and is a reinvention of the British series produced by Davies, focuses on the lives of a varied group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are affected due to a catastrophe.

Devin Way, Fin Argus, Jesse James Keitel, CG, Johnny Sibilly, and Ryan O’Connell were some actors in the series. Many well-known actors and actresses, such as Kim Cattrall, Juliette Lewis, Ed Begley Jr., and Nyle DiMarco, appeared as special guests on the show.

Dunn posted what she called “disappointing news” about the cancellation of ‘Queer as Folk’ on Instagram late Friday night. “To be able to make a show as daring and unapologetic as Queer as Folk in these times and this country is a rare thing. It’s a rare gift indeed.

Because of this fantastic opportunity, our lives will never be the same, and we will be forever grateful to be a part of such a wonderful new family,” he wrote next to a picture of the cast members. “We know how much it means to the fans, and while it breaks our hearts that we won’t be able to make any more episodes, we want to thank everyone for watching and falling in love with Brodie, Mingus, Ruthie, Noah, Shar, Julian, Daddies, Bussey, Marvin, Judy, and Brenda. While we’re heartbroken that we won’t be able to make any more episodes, we want to say thank you. We appreciate the opportunity to celebrate our community and cannot express our pride in this event.

Executive producers included Lee Eisenberg, Emily Brecht, Davies, Nicola Shindler, and Louise Pedersen on behalf of All3 Media International, which distributes both the format and the original British series produced by Red Productions for Channel 4. Davies was the creator of the original British series, and Nicola Shindler was the creator of the original American series. Stephen Dunn, who also served as the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer, was in charge of directing the pilot and the other episodes. At the same time, Jaclyn Moore was responsible for writing and executive production. The show’s producer is referred to as UCP, a branch of Universal Studio Group.

This is the second time an American outlet has remade the original British series in the United Kingdom. Showtime aired an adaption of the show in the United States from 2000 to 2005. The current edition was first in the development stage at Bravo before being moved to the Peacock network, a corporate brother of Bravo, and receiving a series order.

Dunn is credited with directing at least three series episodes, including the pilot episode, developing the show, and serving as an executive producer. On behalf of All3 Media International, which distributes the format and the original British series produced by Red Productions for Channel 4, additional executive producers include Jaclyn Moore, Lee Eisenberg, Emily Brecht, Nicola Schindler, and Louise Pedersen. UCP, a branch of Universal Studio Group, was responsible for producing the show.

Last lines:

The much-hyped reboot of “Queer as Folk” by Peacock looks like it will only air once. The Stephen Dunn-created show, which debuted in June, will not get a second season from the streaming service. There were only eight episodes of the show.
