Fans of Brenden Small’s Metalocalypse had a pretty rough day, when he confirmed the show had been cancelled. While it had a good run, it did not take long for fans to gather online and collectively call for Netflix to bring the show back as a Netflix Original.
There is a bit of a “he said she said” going on right now, with Brenden Smalls tweeting that this was Cartoon Network’s decision and not his:
For those complaining about lack season 5. Was a network decision- I wanted to do it as a final big mini series. They said no. True story.

Regardless, it makes total sense that Netflix might be interested in the show, as it attracts a demographic that certainly appeals to Netflix as a lifetime customer.
While it’s certainly too early to say if Netflix is in talks with Small, the internet is crying for someone to pick up the slack
