The cancellations by Netflix are not surprising, and demonic resident it’s just the latest addition to archived projects that didn’t meet the streamer’s renewal criteria. The original series debuted in second place on Netflix’s Top 10 when it officially arrived, but after three weeks, it fell unceremoniously out of the Top 10, which did not bode well for the post-apocalyptic thriller. Netflix has a vision and while it was initially well received, the series failed to keep up the momentum. Instead of dwelling on negativity, Reddick can acknowledge the solid work that has gone into bringing to life something that audiences could enjoy, if only for a moment.
