Netflix viewers are demanding a second season of this ground-breaking sci-fi thriller with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

Netflix viewers are demanding a second season of this ground-breaking sci-fi thriller with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

Fans are calling it 'criminal' that there aren't more episodes.

It's devastating when your show doesn't get renewed for another season.

Netflix users have found a series so good they're actually threatening to leave the streaming platform if it gets cancelled.

So, what's the fuss about?

The UK-based series follows five people living in modern-day South London who suddenly realise they have superpowers.

Now, it sounds a bit out there, but trust the thousands of fans out there who have been hooked on the show since it hit the streaming giant.

Starring Tosin Cole, Nadine Mills, Eric Kofi-Abrefa, Calvin Demba and Josh Tedeku, the series was created by British musician-turned-filmmaker Andrew Onwubolu, better known by his stage name, Rapman.


Turning his idea into a reality, Rapman created Supacell, a series with six episodes and an all-Black cast - something Rapman had never seen before in the superhero genre.

Fans of the Jay-Z-endorsed series have likened it to a mix of the gangster drama Top Boy and popular superhero show Misfits.

Rapman unveiled Supacell in 2020, a year after his crime-thriller film 'Blue Story' came out.

'I didn’t think it would happen on a Netflix show,' Rapman said. 'So I remember thinking, if this show does get made, and they let me make it the way I want to make it, with the gore, with the blood, with the shock factor, that this could be a show where, going forward, you could have Apple saying, "We’d like one of those!"'

He continued: 'Or Amazon saying they should get an ethnic sci-fi as well. Because, when has there ever been an all-ethnic, not even just Black, cast from Britain? I’ve never seen one.


I just hope that if this does well, it’s going to open a lot of doors. And that’s why I’m feeling the pressure, because it’s not just me - it could change British TV.'

Safe to say, Supacell has 'done well' with a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and fans already demanding a second season.

Viewers have taken to social media to express their need for more Supacell after binge-watching the entire first season in one night.

One fan described it as 'criminal' that there weren't more episodes available.

'#Supacell needs a season 2 and 3 immediately. None of that 6 episodes every two years ish promise me more now,' one X user wrote.

'@Netflix i need that supacell season 2 with speed and efficiency,' another directly tweeted the streaming app.

Another added: 'Definitely need them to drop part 2 asap. if Netflix cancels this I’m deleting the app forever…'
