Fans Left Fuming After Netflix Cancels LGBTQ+ Show After One Season

Fans of Netflix’s Q-Force have been left unhappy to learn the animated series isn’t being renewed for a second season.

The ten-part show follows a group of queer superspies known as Queer Force and features the voices of Wanda Sykes, David Harbour and Patti Harrison.

Last month, writer and voice actor Matt Rogers revealed Q-Force ‘did not get a second season’ during an appearance on the Attitudes! podcast, leaving some people angry. Watch the show's trailer below:

Learning about the news, one person tweeted: “Netflix is an a**hole streaming service. Q force deserves better.”

Another wrote: “f**k you bring back Q Force,” while a third echoed: “Q force was genuinely good, f**k Netflix.”

A fourth social media user penned: “APPARENTLY NETFLIX CANCELLED Q FORCE WHAT THE F**K WHAT THE F**K WHAT THE F**K.”

“PLEASE BRING BACK Q FORCE. I am just finding out they @netflix cancelled it. I just got my bf into watching it, I need more,” a fifth person wrote.

UNILAD has approached Netflix for comment.

Q-Force hit the streaming giant late last year and was first announced back in 2019.

Speaking at the time, the show’s executive producer Todd Milliner said: “A spy TV series is so tough, because they’re so expensive.

“We were thinking how do we get to do gay spy and every week, and the only way to do that is animated, because we can do all of the fun parts of a James Bond film. We can travel, we can have big chase sequences; animation is allowing us that freedom.”

He added: “It does seem like it’s one of the last bastions of masculinity that seems like we can’t break the rule of who gets to play that part.”

However, the show faced criticism from many, most notably after the first trailer for the series was released in August last year.

People felt the teaser was rife with outdated LGBTQ+ cliches, and even after the series’ full release, Q-Force didn’t go down well with everyone. 

The Guardian’s Rebecca Nicholson, for instance, noted: “The cultural references are so dated [...] it’s as if someone pressed pause on queer culture in 2005.”

After watching the show, many viewers took to Twitter to criticise Q-Force, with one person writing: “I watched a few episodes of Netflix’s Q Force, waiting for it to get good. It didn’t.”

Another added: “if you ever feel like being hatecrimed by fellow members of the lgbtq+ community, i highly recommend the tv show q force on netflix.”

“Q Force on Netflix boutta make me go back into the closet,” quipped another social media user.
