Netflix users say new series is so good if it's cancelled they're 'deleting the app forever'

Netflix users say new series is so good if it's cancelled they're 'deleting the app forever'

The new show is set in Britain, but it's nothing like Bridgerton

A new show on Netflix is proving so good that fans are threatening to delete the streaming service if it doesn't come back for more seasons.

And when you consider just how much content is available on Netflix, the fact that users are willing to lose it all over just one series is really saying something.

The series comes from the UK, but it's a far-cry from the prim-and-proper world of Bridgerton.

Instead, the new series follows a group of people living in modern-day South London, just going about their lives when they suddenly realize they have superpowers.

It might sound a bit far-fetched, but fans have found themselves completely hooked by the premise after the new show arrived on Netflix.

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

In an interview with Variety, Rapman explained that he'd 'always loved the superhero stuff', but having grown up in South London, the stories he saw in movies never 'reflected a reality' for him.

"I got asked what I wanted to do next and I said I wanted to do a sci-fi in which someone from where we come from gets powers. And that was the first time I’d said it out loud," Rapman recalled.

The filmmaker soon put his dream into action, and created a superhero show that reflected 'a reality'.

"I grew up in South London and saw people like the characters in the show," he said.

Titled Supacell, the series features an all-Black cast - something Rapman had never seen before in the superhero space.

"I didn’t think it would happen on a Netflix show," he 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!'

"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."

With Supacell now available to watch on Netflix, it's safe to say Rapman's hopes that it 'does well' have come true.

Fans have described the show as a '10/10', with many already begging for more episodes.

"I literally just watched the whole series waiting on the second.. it was a 10/10," one viewer wrote on LADbible's Netflix Bangers Facebook page.

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

You heard them Rapman - make season two happen!
