Has TV seen the end of endings?
Roseanne, Will & Grace, 13 Reasons Why, American Vandal and Big Little Lies are among the shows that ended, then came back -- or are coming back. As Willa Paskin puts it, there is something “nebulous about the end of endings that gives me the heebie jeebies: This is a little inchoate, but what I hate about it, is that it makes us even more slavishly devoted to the imaginations of the people making those shows, as they themselves are ever more financially tied to their old work. “

Netflix’s American Vandal makes fun of Making a Murderer, with Netflix’s blessing
The true-crime documentary series that was released in December 2015 paved the way for the new mockumentary American Vandal. “I got the idea if we could use that same toolkit, if we could make it feel like one of these true-crime documentaries, we could get people to care about d*cks,” says co-creator Tony Yacenda. Netflix was on board, as long as it wasn’t a show with an extended penis joke. PLUS: American Vandal reinvents the d*ck joke.
