Apple’s Swagger is no more.
According to Variety, show creator Reggie Rock Bythewood shared the sad news on social media.
“What an amazing adventure. In our two seasons, we have launched careers, disrupted genre, brought forth humanity through our characters, told stories we care deeply about, revolutionized the way to shoot basketball and had fun.”
Bythewood thanked the show’s creative team and CBS Studios.
“Apple, while you are not ordering a season three, I made the show I wanted to make. Thank you for that… For our FAMbase, you lifted us in ways we could have never imagined. To the industry, don’t take your foot off the gas. Keep telling our stories.”
