Netflix Cancels ‘Soundtrack’ Musical Drama Series After 1 Season

Series just premiered Dec. 18


Netflix has canceled its musical drama series “Soundtrack” after one season, a rep for the streaming service confirmed to TheWrap.

The show, which hailed from “Quantico” creator Joshua Safran, only just premiered on Dec. 18.

The series was described as a romantic musical drama that “looks at the love stories connecting a diverse, disparate group of people in contemporary Los Angeles through the music that lives inside their hearts and minds.”

“Every song is a love song,” star Paul James proclaimed in the trailer, which you can watch here. “Each one of us has a soundtrack, and it tells the story of all we have loved.”

Originally developed at Fox under the title “Mixtape,” the series stars James, “La La Land” alum Callie Hernandez, Jenna Dewan and “Revenge” star Madeleine Stowe. Robbie Fairchild, Jahmil French, Campbell Scott, Christina Milian, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Megan Ferguson and Isaiah Givens also star.

Safran, whose credits also include the NBC musical drama “Smash” and HBO Max’s upcoming “Gossip Girl” series, wrote and executive produced. Ali Krug was co-executive producer, and Annapurna bosses Sue Naegle and Megan Ellison also executive produced.

“Soundtrack” came from Annapurna Pictures in association with 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news of the cancellation.
