Idris Elba in "Turn Up Charlie"

After just one season, Neflix has canceled Turn Up Charlie.

The comedy starred Idris Elba as a struggling DJ and bachelor who starts nannying for the daughter of childhood best friend, Gabby (Frankie Hervey), who’s had a lot more success than him. Piper Perabo and JJ Feild co-starred in the series.

Turn Up Charlie will not return for a second season,” Netflix said in a statement. “We’re especially grateful to star and executive producer Idris Elba, who turned his passion for DJing into a witty, heart-warming comedy series. We’re also thankful to executive producers Gary Reich and Tristram Shapeero and co-executive producers Martin Joyce and Ana Garanito, along with the dedicated cast and crew, for bringing this story to life on Netflix. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Idris on future projects.”
