Netflix's "Jupiter's Legacy," a superhero series well received by the fans, and waiting for the second installment is disappointed. The streaming giant canceled the show after season one. Unfortunately, like always, the platform didn't mention the reason for the cancelation.
Following the announcement, one of the stars of Jupiter's Legacy, Josh Duhamel, was clearly not happy with the news. The Sheldon Sampson star took to social media to slam the platform.
Josh Duhamel posted a shirtless picture with his grey wig, flaunting his abs, with a caption that suggests the show might shift to another streaming platform. Josh wrote,
"When you get dumped by @netflix and have to put yourself back out there...." the star captioned his Instagram post, adding a #sexysantasummer. "What's up, Hulu?"
As you can see, the actor suggests that Netflix cancelation won't stop his show but rather will shift to another streaming platform, Hulu.
‘JUPITER’S LEGACY’ will not return for Season 2 at Netflix yet with all of the cast let out of their commitments.
Instead, they have decided to go a different direction and greenlight a live-action ‘SUPERCROOKS’ adaption. pic.twitter.com/YM7ZyMkkOP

Netflix announced the cancelation on June 2, 2021, less than a month after the superhero series premiered on the platform. The creator of the show and co-creator of the comic book of the same name, Mark Millar, tweeted how disappointed he was following the news.
Mark wrote, "I'm really proud of what the team achieved with Jupiter's Legacy and the amazing work everyone did on that origin season," he said. "I've been asked a lot about what we're planning next with this world and the answer is to see what the super villains are getting up to."
Even Grace Sampson star, Leslie Bibb, took to Instagram account to unveil her feelings following the cancelation. Leslie, in her post, wrote, "This union is something i believed in and i will miss wholeheartedly."
Leslie was then joined by Andrew Horton, who plays Brandon Sampson in the series. In his post, the actor wrote, "I feel as though we had barely scratched the surface with this one, but as the inimitable Jim [Carrey] once said 'that's the way the cookie crumbles."
The actor added,
"A huge thank you to every single person involved in this titan of a project; we should be incredibly proud of what we created, regardless of the outcome."
