However, when the fans were hoping for Spinning Out Season 2, they were very disappointed when the series was canceled by Netflix a few days later in February 220.

While talking about the series Brad Schwartz stated in an interview, “With Kiss and Cry, which became Spinning Out, that was our favorite project. The best script I think we ever had, and a young, up-and-coming new voice who wrote it. autobiographical and a passion project all the things that we love to champion.” He continued, ” We went everywhere trying to get that. We couldn’t find the economic model for us, and it’s heartbreaking and we had to let it go, and then Netflix jumped on it.”
Is Spinning Out Based On Real Story?
The most straightforward response is that ‘Spinning Out’ is not based on a genuine story. However, a closer examination of the series reveals that its depiction of various themes centered around the sport of figure skating is not far from reality. ‘Spinning Out’ may come across as a sweetened romantic story about a figure skating couple’s journey at times.
However, as it develops the bond between the two protagonists, it never shies away from exposing their flaws. When it comes to its depiction of figure skating as a profession. The series emphasizes what happens behind the scenes rather than glamorizing it. Instead of focusing solely on the activity, the documentary highlights how it affects the lives of those who participate in it. All skaters are expected to be flawless at the rink with their enticing routines, overall performance, and external beauty, but their lives outside of it are far from faultless.
