Has First Kill Been Renewed for Season 2? Here’s What We Know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

First Kill is a new LGBTQ+ paranormal teen series about two 17-year-old girls who find love in Savannah, Georgia. The catch? One’s a vampire, and the other is a monster hunter.

If you’re like us and binged-watched this supernatural drama over the weekend, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.


What is First Kill Season 1 about?

First Kill is a teen drama based on the YA short story by V. E. Schwab and inspired by the famous story of Romeo and Juliet.

The show follows two families. There’s the Fairmonts, who are an esteemed family among Legacy vampires. And there’s the Burns, who come from a Guild dedicated to hunting monsters like the Fairmonts. Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) and Calliope (Imani Lewis) come from warring families, but falling in love puts a little hitch in their plans to kill each other.

We have extensive coverage of First Kill on the site, including episode recaps and an ending explained. Feel free to check those out!


Has First Kill been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix has not renewed First Kill for season 2. Considering how season 1 ended, many were hopeful for a sequel but alas, that will not happen. According to Deadline, First Kill has been officially cancelled and axed at Netflix.


Why was First Kill cancelled?

It’s tricky to say for sure but most of Netflix’s big metrics rely on completion of episodes and the number of hours watched. First Kill actually hit Netflix’s Top 10 within its first three days of release with 30.3M hours viewed.

However, according to sources the drop-off rate was pretty big and it just didn’t have the same staying power as many of Netflix’s other hits. Teen series are always tricky to get right and land successive seasons and it appears that a lack of completed episodes and a high drop-off rate have contributed toward First Kill’s cancellation.

Unless another studio picks this one up, it seems like these teen vamps are done!

  1. I would really like to see season 2 of first kill. I hope that Netflix does not cancel it.

  2. I was skeptical when I first put this on, board and just flipping through channels. I only stopped on this show because it had an interesting title icon. Next thing you know, I’ve watched 1 or 2 episodes every night since. Have now watched the whole thing twice. Got my wife into it too, and she doesn’t like vampire shows or teen dramas. Was on the edge of my seat from the moment we realized Theo was turned. They would be very foolish not to pick this one up for more seasons, I think they’re really on to something here. Eagerly waiting/hoping for season 2

  3. Like Twilight, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, this too has got my attention. I hope they got as many seasons as it’s predecessors. Waiting with expectations.

  4. Yes!! Amazing show!! Love the premise, style, story telling, acting, humor, chemistry and especially sweet love story inside the action series. More, more, more, Please!!!!!

  5. Wasnt sure about it at first but by the end of first episode i was hooked!. Love it the theme the characters everything and looks like it could run for several seasons too – my imagination is going wild, especially seeing the ending -werewolves and other “monsters” wow, there just has to be another several seasons it cant end like that! Are there any books out of this storyline, would make a good read book too! Come on Netflix listen to your viewers, we are hungry for more….

  6. Please bring First Kill back for a second season and even beyond Netflix.I binged watched, couldn’t get enough. It is so disheartening to see shows go at the drop of a hat after 1 season or 2 and especially when a series ends with no ending…. we see this all the time with the major TV stations. I would like to see this changed with our streaming services, as you did pick up Manifest. I can also call myself Queen of Vampire movies, TV series, and I especially liked the story live with Cal and Juliette. Hope you listen to the viewers.

  7. Much like the L Word impressed, seduced and compiled a forever following this/first kill could fulfill and keep a younger generation similarly. Let’s keep this going Netflix.
    When people are kept wanting ..you are doing your job!!!
    The Chemistry was on point!
    PS. This older generation is wanting too.

  8. I would love to see a Season 2 of First Kill especially since Season 1 I binged watch it in 2 Nights! Even more I would love to see Emma Roberts on next Season as a brand new turned Vampire? Please Netflix renew First Kill.

  9. Love this show and after legacies just ended it was something to fill that void. I would love season 2,3&4 lol please

  10. Please another season and more I loved it never been made before I love the Romeo and Juliet theme of it all and vampire and vampire Hunter lesbians fall in love so genius I watched it in one day I couldn’t stop please do me And everyone else a favor and keep your word on at least five seasons on this show it’s so much better then vampire diaries for sure come on please do it soon like ASAP lol thx

  11. It surprised me !! Such a sweet love story yet a lot of questions that need to be answered .. I have watched 4 times .. now waiting for season 2 .. please please please give us some closure!! I know it’s not easy , it’s worth it..
    The actors have done a great job!!! Keep it up !!!

  12. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE renew first kill. I watched all of season one in one day. I LOVE IT it kept me wanting more so I couldn’t help but watch all of season one lol. If Netflix doesn’t give us another season they might lose a customer. This is a very good show if you haven’t seen it give it a try you won’t be sorry.

  13. I watched this show out of curiosity and with low expectations and while it’s not without its flaws, I enjoyed this show A LOT more than expected.

    The performances and chemistry between the two leads was so stunning and beating it made my heart melt (and I don’t get that way very easily).

    Please renew the show!
    It’s too lovable to be tossed aside, especially after that heartbreaking cliffhanger.

  14. I would really love a second season even more if possible im crazy inlove with this series i have watch all 8 eoisodes 3x already an still cannot stop. Abuslotely amazing..

  15. I would love to see another season to the frist kill to see how all of this goes because it was really good and I love watching stuff about werewolf and vampire and witches stuff like is right up my ally so please bring it back for some more seasons thanks

  16. I loved this twist on vampires. There should totally be another season. I watched the whole season in a few hours and loved it could not stop watching and want more…I want to see what happens with theo in Oliver’s care…what plans Oliver has…it is a great start yet I hope Netflix keeps it and keeps going with.

  17. I’m seriously getting fed up with Netflix, they put in new seasons . You make it through the 1st season love it only to wait and wait for the 2nd season and they cancel it. They choose what they want to choose and wonder why they’re losing customers, and all they’re doing is raising up their prices for those that are still left behind. For example one good show Julian the phantoms they decide to cancel,not to make a second show Despite how many people wanted a second season,but did they listen nope!! So many good TV shows people have begged and begged to be put back for another season, at least to end it properly and they choose what what they want!! Only 2 go with Netflix original,not what the viewer’s want..getting fed up with Netflix literally!! it’s not worth the money People are paying monthly and they keep increasing it unreal.

  18. My sister and I watched thus whilst on holiday , it was hard to turn off to go to sleep. Can’t wait to see season 2, so many questions .fantastic plots n so many twists.

  19. Honestly they left a lot of cliffhangers in the first season things I really want them to explain in the second so plz plz plz plz renew for a season 2 I’m literally begging u I need it

  20. My partner and I love it considering he doesn’t like this kind of series! But he was so into the series.

  22. i am literally crying i need to see more of this show!!!!! i ship cal and jules with my whole life i need to see more or i will cry and die!!!

  23. Binge-watched entire series in one day. Totally worth the time spent.
    As with any show things I liked and those I didn’t. Mixed feelings about the show in the direction they take but would definitely hoping to see multiple seasons.

  24. I just finished watching season 1 of First Kill and as everyone on set was crying so was I. I love this new and vibrant show it kept me and edge every evening. Normally I don’t watch series on Netflix but this one since I am the Vampire movie Queen had to watch this one and once I started over the weekend I couldn’t stop. I work from home and was able to watch it on Monday than. Than finished it on Tuesday love love love this show. Please don’t have us to wait too long,

  25. I just binged watched first kill as well and i say…..bring on season number 2!!!!!

  26. I just watched it and it was awesome I would love to see another season .
    Please renew.

  27. Season 2! Season 2! Season 2! Just binge watched it, and it was awesome! Wasn’t sure at first, but I’m definitely in favor of the next season and hopefully very soon!

  28. I just binged watched the whole season and loved it. I really hope there is a season 2. Would live to see the livers stay together and work things out and save the day.

  29. This series touches alot of nerves, not just monster and hunter. this show tells us that anyone can truly be a monster not just the so called “bad guy”.

  30. Can’t wait to have the season 2

    I just spent 6 hours watching the season 1 and was a total lit
    Waiting for the season 2😁❤️
