Netflix axes Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show after one season

Despite receiving rave reviews in its first season this past December at the streaming service, Netflix has chosen not to greenlight another outing of Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show, which was executive produced by Emmy nominee Kenya Barris (Black-ish), according to Deadline.

The news of the series’ cancellation was first announced by star James III on Twitter, with the series’ official page following with its own announcement:

Created by and starring the titular comedy crew, the first all-black troupe of the iconic Upright Citizens Brigade, the series featured sketches dealing with a range of issues, with a focus on the black experience, race relations and attitudes towards African-Americans in the media, and cinema in particular. The various sketches were also intermixed with Big Brother-style confessions, in which the cast members are “living together” and talk to the camera.

Alongside the main troupe, which includes Shawtane Bowen, Jonathan Braylock, Ray Cordova, James III, Caroline Martin, Jerah Milligan, Monique Moses and Keisha Zollar, the series featured major guest stars including Ice Cube (The High Note), Busy Philipps (I Feel Pretty) and Gillian Jacobs (Community).
