Netflix Cancels Crime Drama Seven Seconds

By

Seven Seconds will not be getting a second season on Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant decided to pass on telling another story in what would have been an anthological crime drama. Regina King starred in the 10-episode series, which centered around the death of an African-American teenager who was killed by a Jersey City police officer in a hit-and-run. The plot follows the cops who attempted to cover up their crime, the investigators on their tail, and the family left devastated by the loss of their son. The first season told a complete story, so if the show had a second it would have followed a completely different story with some characters and Jersey City remaining as the constant. At least fans got to see King’s character see her story through to the end.

Haha, remember when certain real estate people were referring to Hamilton Park as Hamilton Square Park?

I don't know why film and TV writers need to screw with geography so much. It's not like it's that hard to keep it consistent. I was watching The Magicians S2 last night and there was a scene at an "industrial park in Hoboken". WTF? The whole of Hoboken couldn't contain your typical industrial park. Why couldn't they have said JC, and shot an exterior over on 440? The exterior was an aerial shot perhaps from Secaucus or North Bergen that no sense at all.

They took the word "State" out deliberately - since the crime would be handled by the NJ State Park Police, and presumably, the prosecution wouldn't be handled by Hudson County.

Local knowledge spoils the story's credibility a bit.

7.3/10 on IMDB is about right.


Certain things bothered me too. Like Lexington Ave saying Lexington St on the Street sign. The cops saying the projects on "Dale ave" when it's "Dales ave" and a real detective would just refered to it as Marion. They also mention a fictional projects named Riverside Projects which I didn't see the need for if they name real streets and areas for everything else.

I get why they chose Liberty State Park for the scene because of the Statue of Liberty but they should have gave better reasons the kid was biking through there and the cop was driving through.

I found interesting the idea of the gang leader being in a wheelchair it made me think of a gang member from JC killed 5 years ago. The actor playing him is from JC also.

Overall I still really liked it and wonder what season 2 will be based on since in the articles I read claim the next season they already know what it will be about and it won't be centered around the crash in season 1.

I've heard nothing but good things about this series. I haven't watched it yet, but I did like The Killing, so I'm hoping this has the same feel.

What locals are saying about Netflix drama 'Seven Seconds'

Netflix debuted its 10-episode police drama "Seven Seconds" last week and Jersey City has a lot to say about it.

The show stars Emmy winner Regina King as a grieving mother seeking justice for her teen son, who is killed after he is struck by a white cop driving an SUV. The show is set in Jersey City, though it was largely filmed elsewhere.

Finished binge watching it. I really liked it, while it may not of been in JC I liked that they at least used shots of JC before and in between scenes even if they weren't in the real locations. Was also interesting seeing someone I went to high school with acting in the series knowing his real personality is nothing like his character he played.

Look forward to season two.

Veena Sud should really focus on why women can't ride a bus in India w/o being brutally gang raped instead writing racist drivel like this bullshit series for Netflix.




India has nothing to do with Jersey City that in itself would be pure drivel, instead focus on the unjust treatment of our citizens by corrupt politicians in this town.
