Grand Army fans outraged as Netflix cancels teen drama ‘I desire crying’

Many viewers have taken to Twitter since the news broke so as to precise their sadness.

“I desire Netflix cancels all of their good shows because they need us to suffer. That’s the sole plausible explanation at now . #GrandArmy,” another user said.
Another added: “The incontrovertible fact that #grandarmy is canceled makes absolutely no sense it’s so irritating.”
Actor Maliq Johnson, who plays Jayson Jackson, has previously praised the series for that specialize in people of colour.
He told Entertainment Tonight he felt very “underrepresented” in Hollywood, which is what drew him to Grand Army.
Siddhartha Pakam actor Amir Nageria shared Johnson’s feelings about the series, saying: “I don’t think any folks expected to be a neighborhood of something like this once we were so young.”
In discussing why he was drawn to the project also , Nageria remarked: “The script was really authentic during a way that’s really rare.”
The cast were previously asked a few season two renewal last year and were unable to offer a definitive answer at the time.
A’zion joked she was “ready to be paid again” and therefore the cast members all expressed their hope Grand Army would get a season two.
While the series has been cancelled, it hasn’t stopped viewers from speculating if a return would be possible within the future.
The hashtag #RenewGrandArmy has quickly been circulated across social media platforms, with hopes that another network or streaming service will devour the favored show.
