The Canadian comedy series about a Korean family, titled “Kim’s Convenience”, will be canceled after its 5th season.
The novelty, which was announced by the show’s own official Instagram account, comes as a surprise, given that production had already been renewed for its 6th season.
According to the announcement, creators Ins Choi and Kevin White have decided to go ahead with new projects, after the conclusion of the 5th season. Therefore, the series’ responsible producer, Thunderbird Films, chose not to continue with the program without the original duo.
The series, which began its run in 2016 on Canadian broadcaster CBC, saw its popularity grow dramatically in North America after its four seasons entered the Netflix lineup.
The production stars Simu Liu, an actor set to star in the upcoming Marvel comic book adaptation, “ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. ”
Through his official Twitter account, he regretted the brutal cancellation of “ Kim’s Convenience ”, saying he was disappointed:
“Disappointing news today.
My heart is broken. I feel my trip with Jung has been cut short. I think you, the fans, deserved more. But I’m proud of everything we’ve accomplished together in five seasons.
Thank you for all your love and support. It’s not a farewell, just an OK, see you soon ”.
