Renewed Or Cancelled?
The Peripheral is the latest cerebrally charged sci-fi series. The show has been trending every week on Amazon and at the time of writing, currently occupies the number 1 spot on Prime UK. After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is The Peripheral Season 1 about?
Based on a novel of the same name, The Peripheral is a science fiction show. It follows the life of Flynne Fisher, a young girl living a simple life in a small town. She spends her time indulging in VR video games called sims. One day she and her brother beta test a new sim that introduces them to a fantastic new world.
But this virtual game starts to become all too real. It might just be the future itself…

Has The Peripheral been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, The Peripheral has been cancelled.
Generally streamers like Amazon gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, The Peripheral has had a pretty mixed reaction from audiences and critics alike, with some lamenting the slow pace and a poor final episode.
A second season was due for release but because of delays due to the 2023 writers strike, Amazon decided to cancel the show.
