Peacock canceled Pitch Perfect: Bumpers in Berlin after just one season, reversing its previous decision to renew starrer Adam Devine for season 2.
The NBCUniversal platform announced the renewal of the series in January, shortly after the conclusion of its first season of six episodes.
At the time of the renewal, NBCU said Bumpers in Berlin was Peacock’s best comedy series to date, but provided no viewing data.
The cancellation comes amid the dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes in Hollywood, which have no clear end in sight.
Other shows that suffered a similar fate include Prime Video The ringroad And A league of its own.
According to Deadline, Bumpers in Berlin was already behind schedule and had not yet begun pre-production on Season 2 when the WGA strike began on May 2.
The WGA and AMPTP returned to the negotiating table last week, but no fair agreement has yet been reached. Now spanning five months, the strike is poised to break the guild’s previous record for its longest strike in history, which took place in 1988 and lasted 154 days.
Starring Devine as Bumper Allen, which was a reprisal of his role in Perfect pitch movies, Bumpers in Berlin followed the acapella singer as he attempts to launch his music career in Germany where one of his songs took off.
The Peacock original series also starred Flula Borg, Sarah Hyland, Lera Abova and Jameela Jamil. Mégane Amram (The right place) served as showrunner and executive producer alongside Perfect location 2 director Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman, Devine and more.
