Will The Baby-Sitters Club Be Getting a Season 3? Will the Cord Landline Ring Again?

Netflix sometimes has to make harsh decisions about shows that they do not want to axe(probably). To maintain the exclusivity and freshness of their content, they have to keep updating their list. This means we get great new shows almost every other month. However, that also means shows that aren’t doing well need to get canceled. And it appears that it is The Baby-Sitters Club this time.

No more The Baby-Sitters Club

The Baby-Sitters Club was a breath of fresh and nostalgic air. Netflix has always been interested in modern teen drama. And they have a huge library full of them. But what made The Baby-Sitters Club special was the 90s nostalgia that came with it. That may be why the show’s two seasons were rated 100% fresh in Rotten Tomatoes.

The show focused on a group of friends that open up a babysitting club and dealt with the issues of growing up. The long-running novel series by Ann M. Martin of the same name was the inspiration for the show.

However, after season two of The Baby-Sitters Club released on October 11th, 2021, the show failed to crack the Top ten list on Netflix. So, four months after its release, the streaming giant has announced that the show will not be receiving a season 3.

Unfortunately, The Baby-Sitters Club will be joining Sense 8, Altered carbon, Another Life, The OA, American Vandal, and Gentefied, among others, as popular shows that Netflix canceled after two seasons.

Statement by showrunner

The best-selling novels of Ann M. Martin were brought to the big screen by showrunner Rachel Shukert. After the show got canceled Rachel gave a statement saying “I have wanted to be a part of the world Ann M. Martin created since I was 7 years old, and for two amazing seasons I actually got to be. It was a dream come true”

Rachel also thanked Netflix and Producers for giving her an albeit short opportunity to make her dreams come true. She said in the statement. “Thank you to Walden Media and to Netflix for giving us the opportunity to introduce Kristy, Claudia, Stacey, Mary Anne, Dawn, Jessi, and Mallory to a new generation of fans who I know will love them as much as we do for years to come.”

Both seasons of the show are currently streaming on Netflix. Lets us know what you feel about this decision in the comments.
