Netflix decides no more seasons for No Good Nick
Staff Reporter | On 17, Sep 2019
There’ll be no more seasons for No Good Nick, Netflix has decided.
The multi-camera dramedy, starring the Clarissa Explains It All icon Melissa Joan Hart and Lord of the Rings and Stranger Things hero Sean Astin, was picked up by the streaming giant last year. It followed 13-year-old Nick, who infiltrated a family with the intention to get revenge on them for unknowingly ruining her life. As she got to know the family, she found compassion for them and struggled with whether or not she could ultimately go through with the plan.
Executive produced and created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan, and directed by Andy Fickman, the series received a 20-episode order, which was split into two batches. Volume 1 premiered in April this year, before the second volume landed in August. Just over a month on from Volume 2’s debut, though, Netflix has cancelled the show after one season.

7th March 2019
Update: No Good Nick Part 2 will premiere on 5th August 2019.
Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin head to Netflix this April for new series No Good Nick.
The multi-camera dramedy starring the Clarissa Explains It All and Lord of the Rings icons was first announced last year. Now, it’s got an official release date – and it’s only a matter of weeks away.
The duo are joined on screen by Siena Agudong (Star Falls, Alex & Me), Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv & Maddie) and Kalama Epstein (The Fosters) in the story of 13-year-old Nick, short for Nicole, who infiltrates a family with the intention to get revenge on them for unknowingly ruining her life. As she gets to know the family, she will find compassion for them and will struggle with whether or not she can ultimately go through with the plan.
No Good Nick is executive produced and created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan, and directed by Andy Fickman (She’s The Man, The Game Plan). The original series is produced by Netflix. It will premiere on 15th April. Read on for the poster.
No Good Nick is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
No Good Nick: Melissa Joan Hart to star in Netflix sitcom
28th September 2018
Melissa Joan Hart will star in No Good Nick, a new sitcom for Netflix.
As Netflix prepares to unveil to the world its rebooted Sabrina the Teenage Witch series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the streaming giant is also bringing back the Sabrina of many subscribers’ childhoods, as the ubiquitous 90s star of Clarissa Explains It All returns to our screens
The show stars Hart as Liz, a career mum and wife to Ed, a husband and dorky father figure played by Sean Astin. But the parents’ happy home is undermined when they unwittingly welcome Nick, a teenage con artist, into their lives.
Siena Agudong (Star Falls) will play the eponymous trickster, with Kalama Epstein (The Fosters) and Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv and Maddie) also joining the cast as Liz and Ed’s daughters.
“Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin are beloved by millions of fans around the world, and we are delighted to bring them together as parents for the very first time,” Netflix VP Kids and Family Melissa Cobb said in a statement. “We hope to entertain kids and families with heart, mystery and a lot of fun when No Good Nick comes to Netflix.”
The project marks a reunion between Netflix and Astin, after the Lords of the Rings star appeared in Season 2 of Stranger Things. It also marks Netflix’s ongoing commitment to family-friendly original series, although Netflix has described the sitcom as containing elements of serial drama, as there’s more to Nick than meets to eye.
The show is created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan, with Andy Fickman (Kevin Can Wait, Liv and Maddie) directing. Production is already underway on the series.
