‘Queer as Folk’ Revival Canceled At Peacock After One Season

The Queer as Folk revival at Peacock has been canceled after just one season.

The platform debuted the entire first season of the show, which received a straight-to-series order in April 2021, on June 9 of this year.

Starring Fin Argus, CG, Jesse James Keitel, Ryan O’Connell, Johnny Sibilly, Devin Way, and Kim Cattrall, among others, the series followed a group of friends in New Orleans who are coping with aftermath of a shooting at a queer nightclub.

Creator Stephen Dunn also served as executive producer alongside Jaclyn Moore, Lee Eisenberg, Emily Brecht, original series creator Russell T. Davies, Nicola Shindler, and Richard Halliwell on behalf of NENT Studios UK, which distributes the format. UCP was in the studio.

“It’s a rare gift in these times, and in this country, to be able to make a show as fearless and unapologetic as ‘Queer As Folk,’” said Dunn in an Instagram post. “This experience changed our lives forever and we’re so grateful to have found this incredible new family. But today we received the disappointing news that we’re not getting a second season.”

Dunn went on to thank fans for watching the show and for “falling in love” with the characters. “We’re so grateful for the chance to honor our community and are so proud of this show,” he concluded.

Queer as Folk had two previous iterations prior to the Peacock reboot. The original British series aired for 10 episodes between 1999 and 2000. The series was then adapted for American audiences by Showtime with a version that aired for five seasons between 2000 and 2005.

This marks the second cancelation at Peacock over the past few weeks. Earlier in September, Peacock canceled the single-camera comedy Rutherford Falls after only two seasons.
