Zoo Might Be Canceled, but Here's Why You Need to Binge It on Netflix Anyway

  • BuzzSugar
My Netflix addiction has led me to any number of random TV shows, from pulpy teen histories and romantic comedies to Brazilian dystopian dramas and, of course, compelling true-crime documentaries. The joy of the streaming service's recommendation algorithm is that it'll throw up great stuff you'd never encounter otherwise. I wish I could tell you that this is how I found Zoo, but I'd be lying. I've been watching it on TV since season one. News broke this week that it's been canceled by CBS after a three-season run, which will come as no surprise to anyone who's watched it. How it got this far is beyond me, but I'm grateful. Zoo is the most gloriously bonkers TV show you will ever watch. And now that it is on Netflix, I'm here to tell you not to let this one pass you by. "Zoo is the most gloriously bonkers TV show you will ever watch.

Zoo has been cancelled

Kirsten Howard Oct 24, 2017

Grim news for fans of Zoo, as it's been confirmed that the third season will be the show's last...

Zoo had a kind of weird, but incredibly beneficial, deal with both CBS and Netflix, where the crew were able to keep hold of a pretty high budget for a summer show in exchange for agreeing to release seasons to the streaming giant just after they finished airing, but it appears it wasn't enough to save the series when the ratings slipped from an average of 4.45 million viewers during the second season to 2.65 million viewers during the third.

Honestly, the details don’t matter. What actually does matter is the fact Zoo is a beautiful, preposterous summer slice of sensory overload. …
