- “God’s Favorite Idiot” with comedy star Melissa McCarthy will not be shot any further for the time being.
- After 8 of 16 planned episodes from season 1, production was stopped.
- Was the streaming service Netflix not satisfied with the material produced?
A rather unusual message reaches us from Australia: During the streaming service Netflix
According to Netflix, the shooting stopped because it is planned to produce “God’s Favorite Idiot” in 2 blocks of 8 episodes. When the remaining 8 episodes will be shot, however, is not yet certain.
This is what “God’s Favorite Idiot” is all about
A tech support employee (McCarthy) falls in love with a colleague (Ben Falcone) in Netflix comedy just as he becomes an involuntary messenger from God personally. In addition, “God’s Favorite Idiot” is supposed to be about roller skating, a lake of fire and the upcoming apocalypse.
Of course, in view of the sudden stop in filming, assumptions were made as to whether the streaming service Netflix is simply not satisfied with the 8 episodes of its series that have been made so far. Melissa McCarthy and her husband, director and director Ben Falcone, have not been able to convince the audience with their works lately.
So is the 2021 Netflix release “Thunder Force“on the review collection page Rotten Tomatoes currently with a disastrous audience score of only 23 percent positive reviews, while the HBO Max-Comedy “Superintelligence” from 2020 met with approval from just 32 percent of the voting audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
The ultimate Netflix quiz
What was the first Netflix in-house production?
Perhaps Netflix simply wanted to minimize the (financial) damage here – but all of this is pure speculation at the moment.
