Spinning Out series cancelled after one season at Netflix
After a little more than a month since Spinning Out made its series debut, Deadline brings word that Netflix has officially decided not to give the figure skating drama a second season renewal. The series was led by Crawl’s Kaya Scodelario and Mad Men’s January Jones.
Spinning Out is a 10-episode series created by former competitive figure skater Samantha Statton (Mr. Mercedes). It followed the story of Kat Baker (Scodelario), an up-and-coming, high-level single skater who’s about to turn in her skates after a disastrous fall took her off the competition track. When Kat seizes an opportunity to continue her career as a pair skater with a talented bad-boy partner, she risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life. On and off the ice, Kat and her new partner will face daunting odds, injury to body and soul, financial sacrifice, and even potential mental breakdown on their way to realizing their Olympic dream.
In addition to Scodelario, who replaced Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) in the lead role, the cast featured Mad Men‘s January Jones, Evan Roderick (Arrow), Sarah Wright Olsen (American Made), Will Kemp (Reign), Kaitlyn Leeb (Shadowhunters), Amanda Zhou (October Faction) and Mitchell Edwards (Roxanne Roxanne).
Stratton and Lara Olsen (90210, Free Rein) have served as co-showrunners and executive producers for the Netflix series. Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold was also an executive producer for Safehouse Pictures.
