‘Seven Seconds’ Won’t Return for a Second Season on Netflix

Anthology thriller starred Regina King and Clare-Hope Ashitey

“Seven Seconds” will not be getting a second season at Netflix.

Starring Regina King, Clare-Hope Ashitey with Russell Hornsby, Beau Knapp, Michael Mosley and David Lyons, the drama followed people involved in an investigation of the death of a young black boy, as well as the boy’s family. The ten-episode season debuted on the streaming service February 23.

“We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of ‘Seven Seconds.’ Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, stand-alone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come,” said Netflix VP of Originals Cindy Holland in a statement provided to TheWrap.

Though the show won’t be returning to the streaming service, Netflix isn’t abandoning it. An individual with knowledge tells TheWrap that the streaming service will likely submit the show for limited series Emmys consideration.

“Seven Seconds” was created by “The Killing” alum Veena Sud, who also served as executive producer alongside Gavin O’Connor, Lawrence Bender, Kevin Kelly Brown, Alex Reznik and Dan Nowak.
