First Kill’s Cancellation Continues A Netflix LGBTQ+ Problem

Reading now: 196

First Kill was canceled after just one season, joining a growing list of Netflix Originals with female LGBTQ+ lead characters that never saw a second season.

The reported reason for the cancellation was that the first season lacked in viewership and episode completions. Yet, First Kill recorded over 100 million streaming hours within the first month of release, far more than renewed Netflix originals like Heartstopper, leaving viewers questioning whether it was truly a viewing issue or part of perceived lesbophobia on Netflix's end.

Season 1 of First Kill, based on the short story of the same name by V.E. Schwab, revolved around the Burns, a Black family of monster hunters whose youngest daughter Calliope was looking for her first kill, and the Fairmonts, a family of Legacy vampires whose youngest daughter Juliette was also looking for her first kill.

Throughout the eight-episode arc, Juliette and Calliope not only achieve their first kills but fall in love against the wishes of their families and communities.
