Netflix Cancels Queer Series ‘Smiley’ After Just One Season

Smiley

Sad news for the queers. Netflix has canceled yet another queer show, this time, the gay Spanish comedy ‘Smiley’ after only a season.

Based on a play by Guillem Clua of the same name, ‘Smiley’ tells the love story between two Barcelonian gay men, a bartender named Alex (played by Carlos Cuevas) and an architect named Bruno (Miki Esparbe), who meet because of a misdirected voicemail. It was released on December 7, 2022, with 8 episodes.

The first season followed the story of the play, and a second season was supposed to continue with an all-new material that could take the form of an anthology series, however, Clua told Spanish news Aqui Catalunya that a second season is no longer happening. “I can tell you that there won’t be a second season of Smiley,” he said. “But there will be other things that I can’t reveal right now.”

‘Smiley’ was a hit among queer audiences. In fact, it received a nomination for Outstanding Spanish-Language Scripted Television Series at the 2023 GLAAD Media Awards and Best TV Comedy at the 2023 Queerties Awards. With Clua’s words, however, fans can only hope for something good in store for the future of ‘Smiley’.

‘Smiley’ now joins the long list of queer shows Netflix has canceled, to the disappointment of the queer community. This list includes ‘Warrior Nun’, ‘I Am Not Okay With This’, ‘First Kill’, ‘The Get Down’, ‘Special’, ‘Sense8’, ‘One Day at a Time’, ‘GLOW’, ‘The Society’, ‘Q-Force’, ‘Uncoupled’, ‘Everything Sucks!’, and ‘Atypical’.

The first, and now only, season of ‘Smiley’ is still available on Netflix.
