Netflix Cancels Plans for THE MAGIC ORDER

Following on from Netflix recently cancelling several genre shows, now comes word that the axe has swung on another series.

Via Deadline, Netflix has pulled the plug on its plans to adapt Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel’s The Magic Order as a TV show.

It was only earlier this year that news broke of The Magic Order getting the live-action series treatment, with James Wan boarding the show as executive producer. Now, as the show was to being production, Netflix has decided against moving forward with The Magic Order.

As has been the case with several other Netflix shows, the reason for The Magic Order being scrapped is largely down to the ongoing global pandemic that is causing so much uncertainty in the industry.

The Magic Order was one of the several properties to be adapted by Netflix as part of the streaming service’s 2017 deal with Millar, and so it remains to be seen whether the show will be revisited at some point down the line.

This comes hot on the heels of Netflix axing shows like I Am Not Okay With ThisThe Society, and GLOW.
