‘Chambers’ Cancelled By Netflix, Star Sivan Alyra Rose Reacts, Fans Up in Arms


If you’ve become a big fan of Netflix supernatural drama series Chambers, we’ve got some bad news for you.

The streaming giant has decided that one season is enough for the series, which starred Sivan Alyra Rose, Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn. As Netflix still keeps its viewer numbers under wraps, despite saying they intend to be a little more transparent, there are no official ratings to go on. Still, it’s clear the numbers tuning in weren’t enough – nor was the buzz loud enough – to warrant expenditure on another chapter.

Created and written by Leah Rachel, the series followed Sasha Yazzie (Rose), a heart attack survivor who receives a heart transplant and becomes consumed with knowing more about the donor. As she digs, she begins to exhibit some troubling traits…

Chambers will not return for a second season,” Netflix said in a statement, as reported by Deadline. “We’re grateful to creator and showrunner Leah Rachel for bringing this story to us and to her fellow executive producers Alfonso Gomez Rejon, Steve Gaghan from Super Emotional, Winnie Kemp and Wolfgang Hammer from Super Deluxe, and Jennifer Yale. We’re also thankful to the tireless crew, and to our incredible cast, especially Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn and talented newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose.”

Rose, the first Native American to lead a series, took to Twitter to express her disappointment on the news.  “I feel like my heart is f-cking shattering,” reads one of her posts. “tha brown native kidz now have someone they can see themselves in. that alone dries my tears,” reads another. With reposts of tweets saying things like “F-ck Neflix,” it’s clear Rose isn’t too happy with the company.

The fans are, of course, deeply unhappy at the news. The hashtag #savechambers is being used in the hope that it will do just. Here’s some of what’s being said:
