Netflix Cancels 'Spinning Out' After Just One Season

Unfortunately, Netflix didn't offer up a reason with regards to why they've chosen not to renew Spinning Out, but as with previous cancellations, it likely comes down to the series underperforming as far as their viewership analytics go. The 10-episode series follows Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario), a talented, up-and-coming elite figure skater who's ready to turn in her skates after a disastrous fall took her off the competition track.

After a little more than a month since Spinning Out made its series debut, Deadline brings word that Netflix has officially decided not to give the figure skating drama a second season renewal. She splits her time between the ice rink, working as a waitress and living with her family in the nearby working-class town of Hawkley, Idaho.

IMDb notes that Scodelario and Shields play half-sisters Kat and Serena Baker, and Jones plays their mother, Carol Baker. Fueled by a desire to prove that she can cut it as a pairs skater, Kat keeps her eye on the prize - facing daunting odds to realize her Olympic dream.

The cast also included Will Kemp (Reign) as Serena's coach, Amanda Zhou as Kat's best friend, Svetlana Efremova (The Americans) as Kat and Justin's coach, Mitchell Edwards (All American) as Kat's colleague/friend, and David James Elliott (JAG) and Sarah Wright Olsen (Parks and Recreation) as Justin's father and stepmother.

Former figure skater Samantha Stratton, who created the series, served as an executive producer and showrunner alongside Lara Olsen. Safehouse Pictures' Tory Tunnell, Joby Harold and Matt Schwartz also executive produced.
