Audiences are fuming after Netflix cancels another fan-favourite TV show Young Wallander
| Last updated
Netflix has decided to call it quits for Young Wallander, announcing the show will not be returning for a third season.
Production company Yellow Bird first released the series on the streaming service in September 2020.
It’s based on the Henning Markell novels and follows a young police officer named Kurt Wallander, who is promoted to detective to investigate a hate crime causing havoc in modern-day Sweden.
The stars in the show include Adam Pålsson, Yason Atour, Ellise Chappell, Sara Seyed, Leanne Best, and Richard Dillane.
But after the second season dropped, which was well received, fans have been left shocked that Netflix pulled the plug.
One person wrote: “Aww I liked this show..but it ended well in season two.”
Another said: “Omg are Netflix making decisions now? First was You [and] then this show even though i don't know this show sorry. I’m scared.”
Rest assured; You has not been cancelled, folks.
While a third commented: “@netflix terrible decision to cancel Young Wallander. Read the novels on him; your writers may get. [B]etter inspired.”

In the past year, Netflix has made some brutal cancellations, including fan favourites such as Warrior Nun and Fate: The Winx Saga.
However, subscribers were left shook after the series 1899 didn’t get renewed for a second season despite receiving raving reviews.
In January, showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, who also created Dark, announced on social media that the German sci-fi series had been axed.
Odar wrote: “With a heavy heart we have to tell you that 1899 will not be renewed.
“We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a 2nd and 3rd season as we did with Dark.
"But sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned.”
The series centred around a ship full of immigrants travelling from London to New York. Things take an unexpected turn when they discover another vessel adrift on the ocean.
It generated a loyal following after it was released and was even ranked at number two on Netflix’s Top 10 TV English titles just three days after its release, clocking 79.27 million hours viewed.
1899 was also praised by critics, as Collider named it one of the best series of 2022, while Movieweb ranked it the sixth-best show of the year.
Aside from streaming service’s biggest titles, including Stranger Things and Squid Game, it looks like no show is safe.
