‘Scott Pilgrim Takes Off’ Season 2 Not in Development Says Series Creator

Scott Pilgrim main

From Graphic Novel to Live-Action Film to Animated Series

At the Thanksgiving table last week, freelance writers around the world had to field questions from prying relatives about what projects they’re currently working on. In response, these creatives fabricated lucrative ones, like book deals, even though the closest thing to a book deal they had received was their mom’s library card.

However, the Scott Pilgrim Takes Off series’ creators did just the opposite; they leaned into reality, admitting they have nothing in the works for Season 2 of their series: “we’re not working on it. We have no official ideas.”

Netflix’s animated series is derived from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and illustrations and developed through O’Malley’s creative partnership with Ben David Grabinski. Moreover, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)’s cast repeated their same roles in animated form, including the following: Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Alison Pill, Brandon Routh, Anna Kendrick, and Jason Schwartzman.

A Second Season?

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off fans were hoping for a second season, but based on the creators’ recent Rolling Stone interview, it looks unlikely.

O’Malley said, “…We loved what we did. We put it all in there. We don’t have any ideas lying on the floor. We pretty much put them all in. I never say never, but right now, it seems like it would take about 50 different miracles simultaneously for another season to happen. So we’ll see.”

Furthermore, O’Malley discussed how he and his creative counterpart, Grabinski, “tried to make a self-contained one season.” That is, they packed all of their ideas into the first season and executed a gratifying ending since they knew that most series get canceled immediately. Like what a forlorn woman craves after a breakup, the creators are providing “closure” to the audience. 

Finally, getting canceled can prove to be a boon – stoking fan frenzy for resurrecting the series. However, resurrecting things can backfire – like that creepy Frankenstein monster you wish would stop stalking you and go back to being strapped to the laboratory table.

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is currently streaming on Netflix.
