There won’t be any more time traveling for the Paper Girls at Prime Video.
According to a report from Deadline, Prime Video has opted to pass on Paper Girls season 2. As the series was licensed from Legendary Television, the studio has the option to now shop the series to other outlets and is said to be doing so.
Amazon dropped all eight episodes on July 29, but it never cracked into the Nielsen streaming ranking top 10. As we said in our Paper Girls review, the season ended on a cliffhanger, so we’re hopeful that a new home can be found for the series.
The series was created for television by Stephany Folsom and based on the Brian K. Vaughn comic series. Folsom was co-showrunner on season 1 with Christopher C. Rogers, but departed during the filming of season 1, leaving Rogers in charge. Folsom is working with Legendary Television on a new King Kong series for Disney Plus.
With the number of streaming services hungry for content, a series with a pre-existing audience always has a good shot at being picked up. It’s just a matter of getting out there and trying to find the home that is the right fit. Add int he stellar cast – fronted by Sofia Rosinksy, Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, and Fina Strazza – and it seems like a business any service should be eager to jump onboard with.
All eight episodes of Paper Girls season 1 are currently available on Prime Video.
