Big Hollywood companies, it would appear, like to find reasons to reverse renewals of certain shows. A couple of years ago, it was the pandemic, but now Amazon's Prime Video streaming service is blaming strike delays for its decision to shut down planned second seasons of sci-fi series The Peripheral and movie adaptation A League Of Our Own.

League, which adapted the 1992 movie and was co-created by/starred Abbi Jacobson, had already struggled to land a renewal, making do with a shortened four-episode second run after Prime Video decided it hadn't made enough of an impact.

The Peripheral, meanwhile, adapted William Gibson's novel and had performed well. It had picked up a full second season, but its expensive cost may have been a factor.

Bad news, then, for fans of both — and we can expect more in the future. Jacobson hit Instagram to express her displeasure at the League cancellation and to thank all involved in making it.
