Turn Up Charlie won’t be turning up anymore.
Netflix canceled the Idris Elba comedy this week after one season.
“Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season,” the streamer said in a statement. “We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects.”
In addition to acting, Elba is a sought after DJ in real life. The series featured the actor as a struggling DJ and eternal bachelor named Charlie, who was given a final chance at success when he reluctantly became a nanny to his famous best friend’s problem-child daughter.
Turn Up Charlie debuted in March 2019. The cast included Piper Perabo, Frankie Hervey, Shaheen Ramdiane, and Nicki Vickery.
Elba co-created the comedy, which was a co-production between Reich’s Brown Eyed Boy Productions and Elba’s Green Door Pictures.
