The October Faction has been cancelled

Taking to Twitter to discuss the disappointing news, one person wrote: "I'm so disappointed for you all and for us who enjoyed it. Maybe try Prime instead. Worth a pitch to them." Another added: "Aww, man. Enjoyed both shows! Netflix wielding that cancellation axe with abandon these days." A third person wrote: "I enjoyed October Faction.
