Netflix Pulls the Plug on Regina King’s Series ‘Seven Seconds’

Netflix cancels ‘Seven Seconds.’

The plug has been pulled on the series from Fox 21. ‘Seven Seconds’ premiered February 23, starring one of our favorites, Regina King. The “drama explored race in America through a story involving the hit-and-run of an African American teenager by a white Jersey City cop and the crime’s subsequent cover-up by the mostly white police force.”

Netflix did not release viewership information, however the series has an “84 percent score among those who watched it.”

Vp originals at Netflix, Cindy Hollands released a statement saying:

“We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of Seven Seconds. Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, stand-alone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come.”

Did you see longevity in the storyline? Are you sad to see ‘Seven Seconds’ go?
