Tiny Pretty Things came out back in December 2020, an year before from now. When the show came out, it quickly became popular with fans and went on to become one of the most loved YA shows for a while.

It’s okay, because you’re gonna love hearing all about it. So what is Tiny Pretty Things Season 2 going to be about? And does it even exist? Or has Netflix given up on the show and thrown it into limbo? These are the questions that we are going to answer today. So keep reading.

Tiny Pretty Things Season 2: About the Show
Tiny Pretty Things is a show that came out back in December 2020. The show is a Netflix Original series that has been created by Michael MacLennan and is based on the books written by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton. The show is directly based on the source material and takes place in the prestigious Archer School of Ballet, a fictional school that holds a lot of prestige for its ballerinas over the world. The show is based in the dark town of Chicago, and it clearly shows in the way that things flow and work around the show. The show drops viewers in the midst of chaos from the get go and throws them into the face of tragedy as they discover that there has been a death at the school.
The show starts off in the aftermath of the tragedy of the star ballerina Cassie. Cassie was the best ballerina at the Archer School of Ballet and fell into a coma recently by falling down from the roof of the building. The entire school was taken over by shock, and there were some who couldn’t contain their inner happiness as the spot for the school’s top ballerina was now open. This clearly smells like something bad, as Cassie fell down the roof of the school so conveniently, don’t you think? Well, the characters in the show think the same way and an investigation is quickly launched to determine whether Cassie’s fall was an accident, a suicide, or attempted murder. That alone makes for a juicy story in itself.
This is when our protagonist arrives on the scene to cause even more havoc. Neveah joins the school and is quickly hailed as one of the best ballerinas and as fresh talent. It seems that she is all but ready to take the spot that was left behind by Cassie as the Prima Ballerina of the school. While Neveah has been making a name for herself and her talent, there are girls like Bette who are rather envious and jealous of her and would rather have the top spot for themselves. Teenage rivalry rears its ugly head here, and the results are pretty damn amazing when it comes to entertainment value. It is something that teenagers would particularly enjoy.

Was It Good?
The first season of the show was filled to the brim with riveting mystery, an engaging story, and the usual dose of teenage YA drama that we have all but gotten used to. While it is really the standard affair of things, what makes it special is the fact that it is done so beautifully. Even being rather normal, the show manages to have a different streak. And that made the show popular with the audiences. And I agree. The end of the first season was one that left many questions unanswered, and the minds of the fans bubbling in anticipation of what was to come next. And I cannot say I blame them entirely. Shows like these do have a tendency to end on cliffhangers, and to keep the fans waiting for more.
Tiny Pretty Things Season 2 is expected to follow in the footsteps of the first season and to continue the story where it left off. Cassie, Delia, and Ramon have been involved in a love triangle for quite some time, and the second season is expected to provide some closure on that, while the cause of Cassie’s accident is still unknown. The finale of the season also sees one major death and one that will change the course of the show. So there is a lot riding on Season 2 when it comes to resolving the cliffhanger and moving the story forward. And it is simply too hard to wait.

Tiny Pretty Things Season 2: Renewal
Now this is where things get a little worrying. Tiny Pretty Things Season 2 is a show that has been doing absolutely fine in terms of ratings and viewership. In fact, the show even dethroned the Queen’s Gambit (Read more: The Queen’s Gambit: Season 2 Update!) for a few days and took the top spot. The show has been that good. But since the show came out in 2020, there have been no updates from Netflix regarding any future from the show. And recently, our worst fears were confirmed by the team behind the show. Turns out that Netflix stopped seeing the show’s value some time ago and has since been quietly finding ways to let the noise die down.
Clost, part of the team behind the show, stated, “Netflix told us they were not going to announce it because the way that Netflix content works is that it is evergreen on their platform. It will stay up forever on Netflix.
They didn’t want to take away from the discoverability….If people know that a show isn’t coming back for a second season, more often than not they’re going to choose not to watch it. They don’t want to get attached.
That’s also sort of the same reason why as a cast–we discussed it with our producers, our showrunner, with each other–we decided to keep it quiet that the show wasn’t coming back.”
Clost talked a lot about how much the show meant to him and the entire team, and how the cancelation has been a big blow to them. It is all a very emotional affair to say the least. So all things considered, it is safe to say that Tiny Pretty Things Season 2 has been canceled by Netflix. The show is never going to return to our screens, and any attempts to hold on to it are going to be met with disappointment. So it is time to let it go.

Tiny Pretty Things Season 2: Final Words
With that being said, Tiny Pretty Things Season 2 really is never going to happen. It is a tragedy that such an amazing show has to end on such a grim note, and it is really tough to understand the reasoning behind Netflix’s decision here. But it is what it is, and we have to deal with it. Given the state of affairs, I would not even recommend viewers to watch the first season of the show, because of the unresolved mystery and cliffhanger.
