With a new sketch comedy series set in a British prison, Catherine Tate had her big Netflix debut earlier in 2022. Tate played various characters in the series. How well has the show done, and will Netflix release a second season? Let’s start now. Hard Cell, a mockumentary series premiering on April 12th, 2022, was created by Leopard Pictures and stars Catherine Tate as Laura, Ros, Ange, Big Viv, Marco, and Anne Marie. Anyone who is a fan of the comedian Catherine Tate, best known for her BBC series The Catherine Tate Show, should be familiar with the concept of the show. Others may be more familiar with Tate from The Office’s seasons 8 and 9 or from his role as one of Doctor Who’s many companions.
Renewal Status of Hard Cell Season 2 on Netflix
Even now, months later, no official decision has been made on Hard Cell’s future, even if this is true for the majority of 2022’s new comedic shows. Although the audience rating is 89 percent, the show only received a 20% RottenTomatoes rating from reviewers. The show has a 6.3/10 rating on IMDb, although that rating is based on fewer than 2,000 reviews. We presume that the show has been ghost-cancelled, which makes it extremely unlikely that we will learn anything about the show’s future in the open. Hard Cell’s performance in the top 10 charts around the world wasn’t particularly encouraging, but how did it fare in the UK?
The show is especially poor when compared to other British comedies. Comedy miniseries Man vs. Bee, starring Rowan Atkinson, scored 102 points overall. It even made the top 10 lists in 87 different nations, and in the UK, it spent 17 days there. Sex Education, a well-liked Netflix programme, also received a staggering 318 points. It spent a total of 47 days in the top 10 on Netflix UK. Therefore, it is unlikely that the show will return for another season.
The show received 28 points in the top 10s, and it appeared in the UK TV top 10s for a total of 7 days, according to FlixPatrol. Only a “measly” 31% of applicants made it through to the end, according to their UK panel (who, in contrast to European panels, ought to be familiar with Catherine Tate’s work).
