Los Angeles: Netflix comedy series “Turn Up Charlie”, starring Idris Elba, will not return for a second season, the streamer has announced.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix said in a statement that the platform was grateful to Elba, who co-created the show with TV producer Gary Reich, for his dedication.

“Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season. We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects,” the streamer said.
