Seven Seconds won’t be coming back for a second season. Netflix made the announcement on Wednesday. The show followed Regina King as the mother of a black teenager who was accidentally run over by a white police officer and the cover-up that followed by the mainly white police force.
“We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King, and the cast and crew of Seven Seconds,” said Cindy Holland, VP of original content at Netflix, in a statement. “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.”
From creator and executive producer Veena Sud (The Killing), the series starred two-time Emmy winner Regina King, Clare-Hope Ashitey, Russell Hornsby, Zackary Momoh, Beau Knapp, Michael Mosley, David Lyons, Raul Castillo, Nadia Alexander, Coley Speaks, Patrick Murney, Corey Champagne and Michelle Veintimilla. Netflix plans to submit the series for Emmy consideration in the limited series category. You can check out our interview with Clare-Hope Ashitey here.
