The Imperfects is a quirky and surprisingly bingeable Netflix teen fantasy drama. After finishing all 10 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
The Imperfects centers on three twenty-somethings who end up taking part in an experimental gene therapy. When they’re turned into monsters as a result of that, the trio band together to hunt down the scientist responsible and force him to make them human again.
While this is going on, Alex Sarkov, a former child prodigy, is dead-set on achieving his goal of rewriting the human genome come to fruition, and ushering in the next stage of human evolution.
At the time of writing, The Imperfects has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, The Imperfects has had a pretty mixed reception with critics but audiences have been far more positive, with the show currently doing a great job hitting the top 10 on Netflix across various regions across the world.
Taking everything into consideration, we’re predicting that The Imperfects will be renewed for a second season. This is the perfect sort of show to binge through and Netflix generally do well with attracting big crowds for its teen-focused fantasy/horror dramas.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, there’s certainly scope for another season.
At the end, Tilda was the only one able to master her powers. The final scene of the season sees Burke’s reflection on the laptop showing an image of Finch, grinning over how her plans are progressing. This little tease certainly sets up a much bigger conflict to follow.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
