Blockbuster Season 2 Release Date: Has Netflix Renewed or Canceled Blockbuster?

New Netflix comedy Blockbuster purposefully set up a second season, but due to low ratings and reviews, the show will not be renewed for a second installment. Find out what we thought season 2 of Blockbuster would be like and why it was canceled below.

This new workplace comedy was developed by Vanessa Ramos (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, SUPERSTORE), and stars Randall Park, Melissa Fumero, Olga Merediz, and Tyler Alvarez.

The 10-episode series debuted on Netflix on November 3, 2022, to mixed reviews (now at 5.1 on IMDb and 23% on Rotten Tomatoes).

Reed Hastings, co-CEO of Netflix, gave a series a thumbs up in a Tweet to Netflix’s original creator, Marc Randolph.

Blockbuster Season 2 Release Date

Canceled as of the Official Renewal Deadline,ย After around two months on Netflix, Deadline reported that the show has been canceled.

For a show of this scale, the number of viewers who stick around to the end is crucial and is only one of the many metrics Netflix will consider when deciding whether or not to renew.

The cancellation follows a less successful year for comedies on Netflix. Since May 2021, the service has not renewed any of its newer comedic series.

Vanessa Ramos hinted at her desire for further episodes in an interview with THR, saying that she plans to visit the final Blockbuster shop in Bend if the show is renewed.

In an interview with DigitalSpy shortly after the show’s premiere, Ramos said, “We’re waiting to hear back from Netflix.”

How Well is Blockbuster Performing on Netflix?

The indicators available to us imply that Blockbuster had a subpar launch before rapidly declining, thus it is safe to say that it was not a success for Netflix.

As the new show was watched for less than 20.30M global hours in its first week, it has yet to appear on the official Netflix top 10 sites, missing the title in Blockbuster’s first week.

FlixPatrol reports that out of the 90 countries they monitor, 13 of them have the show in their top 10 Netflix offerings. A total of eight days in Canada’s top 10 and even fewer in all other regions was the show’s longest stint in the spotlight.

The series premiered on November 3, and by the 11th, it had dropped out of the global top 10s on Netflix. The best results were expected to come from the United States, but the movie only made it to number eight on Netflix’s list of most popular shows for a brief period (six days).

Blockbuster Season 2 Cast Members: Who Are in It?

Assuming a second season of Blockbuster is ordered, fans will recognize some of the actors that have been cast in the show. The whole principal cast will probably return to reprise their respective roles.

  • Randall Park as Timmy
  • Melissa Fumero as Eliza Walker
  • Leonard Robinson as Aaron Walker
  • Keegan Connor Tracy as Rene
  • Olga Merediz as Connie
  • Tyler Alvarez as Carlos
  • Madeleine Arthur as Hannah
  • J. B. Smoove as Percy Scott
  • Kamaia Fairburn as Kayla Scott

What did We Expect from Blockbuster Season 2 on Netflix?

Episode 10 serves as a Christmas special, and the team celebrates by decorating the shop at the start of the episode. But then people begin ransacking the business, and Timmy is on the verge of quitting when disaster strikes.

After Eliza admits to Hannah that she has feelings for Timmy, Hannah watches the footage of Aaron’s botched proposal.

In an interview with SlashFilm, Vanessa Ramos reflected on the “bittersweet” conclusion:

As a group, we felt satisfied with the culmination, and we were able to participate in several enjoyable activities. Connie and Patrice, who we considered the show’s other love interest, finally got their happy ending. I dunno if it got across in the final cut, but Patrice’s whole schtick is that she runs a Paris-themed nail salon, yet she’s only ever gone to the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. A slot machine, then. On rare occasions, you may hear something like, “Why is there a slot machine in here?” Simply put, she has only ever been to Las Vegas, and in her mind it counts as experiencing “Paris.”

Had there been a second season, fans would have anticipated more of the same: the gang scrambling to pay the bills, testing out streaming services like Netflix, and seeing their relationships with the other main characters deepen.


Blockbuster season 2 would almost certainly revisit the romantic tension between Timmy and Eliza. In light of Hannah’s revelation in the season one conclusion that Eliza harbors romantic affections for Timmy unbeknownst to him, this is very pertinent. For more details visit our website
