After the first season, ‘Selling Tampa’ is canceled by Netflix

Yes, you read that correctly. Selling Tampa has not been renewed for a second season on Netflix. A portion of the cast members believes that racial discrimination is the cause of the show’s cancellation.

In an interview with Page Six, cast member Juawana Colbert stated, “When they depict us [black women] in a different light — when we’re fighting, squabbling, and calling each other names — they get a Season 2 and a Season 3, but that’s not what we were displaying.”

Colbert continued, “I feel as though we weren’t given a second chance, perhaps because of what we represented as minority women.”


When did the first episode of “Selling Tampa” air?

Let us inform those of you who are unaware that Selling Tampa premiered on Netflix in December 2021. Colbert, Colony Reeves, Anne-Sophie Petit, Tennille Moore, Karla Giorgo, Rena Frazier, Alexis Williams, and Sharelle Rosado comprised the whole cast of the play.

Sharelle Rosado is the broker-in-charge of Allure Realty, which is the company that Selling Tampa focuses on. According to Page Six’s sources, the ladies were kept wondering for nearly a year if the show would be renewed for a second season. According to a source, the women were given the runaround.
According to a source, the cast of Selling Tampa received “hundreds” of DMs “every day” from fans asking about a new season, but they did not know how to respond.

A Zoom call was used to inform the cast of the show’s cancellation.

According to the media site, Adam DiVello, the creator of the Selling franchise, which includes Selling Sunset and Selling the OC, and Skye Wakil, the show’s producer, requested the cast to attend a Zoom call where they broke the news last week.

Colbert stated, “Adam stated categorically that [the decision] was based on numbers, but he never elaborated. I do not sure whether he was discussing ratings or budget statistics. He merely mentioned numbers.”

A source added that the show’s cast members did not receive a crystal-clear explanation but were instructed to inform curious fans. The insider continued, “There are currently no plans for additional ‘Selling Tampa,’ but the first season is still available on Netflix for fans to revisit or discover.”

The insider stated, “We are aware that [‘Selling Tampa’] topped the charts in a number of nations and performed reasonably well. Obviously, there will not be a fifth season of ‘Selling Sunset… It’s just strange. This all-black cast doesn’t even get a chance for a second season.”


What did Juawana Colbert, a cast member, have to say about the show?

According to the Orlando Sentinel, within 24 hours of its premiere, Selling Tampa was the most popular show in the United States on the streaming behemoth Netflix. Colbert told Page Six that the cast believes they are being held to an unreasonable standard or rating expectation because the justification of the number does not appear to suit the scenario well.

The real estate agent added, “When it comes to a minority production with all minority cast members, our numbers will be lower because we are a minority in terms of population size.”

Colbert also mentioned that a few snags arose during the show’s production. She continued by stating that Netflix and its producers were “out of touch” with regard to how to film with an all-black ensemble. She revealed that the producers had unreasonable expectations for the women to prepare for confessional interviews within one hour, which was viewed as unreasonable by several cast members.

Juawana told the outlet, “With sew-ins or the types of extensions that women of color often require, we do not operate on the same timeline. It is not a simple task. It is difficult for women from minority groups. Our hair, just in general, takes longer.”

The entrepreneur claimed that her co-stars had a talk with the show’s producers and that their comments were not regarded adversely, but that little changed as a result.

Colbert added, “I don’t recall anyone saying, ‘OK, we get it. We will make a concerted attempt to do something distinctive. It was almost as if nothing had been spoken.”


The insider stated that ‘Selling Tampa’ creator Adam DiVello never visited the cast on filming

The reliable source claimed, “[The cast] didn’t meet Adam until a couple of months after the show’s launch. Adam is on set for all of his other shows but this one. Granted, COVID was there, so I’m certain that’s an excuse.”

Juwana stated, “I believe the all-white cast members of ‘Selling Sunset’ turning over a key to the all-black female cast members in Tampa set us up for misrepresentation, comparison, and, quite frankly, rivalry. I believe that from the beginning, we were at a disadvantage.”
