Netflix Cancels Idris Elba’s “Turn Up Charlie”

Idris Elba's "Turn Up Charlie"

Idris Elba’s Turn Up Charlie has been canceled after just one season on Netflix.

The eight-part comedy starred Idris Elba as Charlie, a struggling DJ and bachelor who decides to nanny for the daughter of his childhood best friend, Gabby (Frankie Hervey), who ended up being a lot more successful than him. Piper Perabo and JJ Feild co-starred in the series.

Netflix said in a statement, “Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season. We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects.”
