Will there be season 2 of Netflix’s Merry Happy Whatever?

Merry Happy Whatever is a short series, a mix of fun and drama, which made it enjoyable but Netflix canceled it in April 2020. The series received a very mixed review from the fans and critics and because it is a holiday-focused show, it was somehow difficult to continue according to sources.

Though Netflix was yet to renew the series, earlier this year, the Merry Happy Whatever cast was more than willing to continue the show to a second season and even the producers had some unique ideas to keep the show fresh, but recently Tucker confirmed on his Instagram that Merry Happy Whatever will not be coming back for a second season which made the show’s fans heartbroken and pissed on Netflix.

For fans of the show, Season 1 of Merry Happy Whatever is still on Netflix and will always be there.
