Fans Left Outraged After Netflix Cancel Spinning Out After One Season
Fans have been left 'devastated' after Netflix cancelled Spinning Out following just one season.
The series, which has been given the boot after 10 episodes, dropped on 1 January. It featured Skins star Kaya Scodelario portraying a young and talented figure skater called Kat Baker whose career takes a knock when she suffers a serious injury.
However, when she's presented a second chance, she seizes the opportunity to continue her career and pairs up with another elite skater and resident bad boy Justin (played by Evan Roderick).
Hey, everyone. I'm sure you've seen the news - we've been cancelled. We're of course upset because we had so many stories to tell for our badass characters. Thank you so much for watching and being a part of our community. We truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Throughout the first season, fans followed Kat as she realised in order to chase her dreams she would have to tackle fractured family relationships, a rocky partnership, and personal demons that threaten to derail everything.
In response to the cancellation, one person wrote: "So sorry that Spinning Out has been cancelled as it was one of those series that not only had a beautiful story but had something to say. Thanks for your performance!"
Another added: "I am sooooo devastated. This was the best show that I have ever seen and it can't be the end of it . We have to work together to save it."

A third said: "So you're telling me i sat through all them episodes and I won't get to see Kat & Justin's final performance. I need to see them f***ing skate."
Fans are so devastated at not being able to see the end of Kat and Justin's story, a petition has been set up for a second season to be commissioned.
The Change.org appeal was set up three days ago and has already garnered over 14,000 signatures with the author of the petition writing: "It's refreshing to see such a well-done series on a sport (figure skating), which is most often overlooked in itself while including the raw and intense struggles that can come along with it.
"This show brought awareness to bipolar disorder, depression, sexual assault, racial inequality, the power of the wealthy, cultural stereotypes and so much more."

It continued: "Each episode brought the viewers into the world of not only Kat but the supporting characters as well, who all had so much depth and substance that told a story of their own.
"Netflix needs to keep shows like Spinning Out going because they truly create a strong and supporting fan base - a community of individuals who will produce continual support for the shows that they connect with and love so deeply."
