Brand New Cherry Flavor on Netflix
Brand New Cherry Flavor is an Original, limited horror series created by Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion for Netflix. The series is based on the novel of the same name by author Todd Grimson. According to the official synopsis released by the streaming channel, the story is set in the “sun-drenched but seamy world of 1990 Los Angeles.”
The story revolves around Lisa Nova, an aspiring film director, invited to participate in an exciting new movie project. However, this leads to a mind-altering journey of supernatural revenge that gets nightmarishly out of control. In fact, Lisa tumbles down a “hallucinatory rabbit hole of s*x, magic, revenge – and kittens.”
Filming of Brand New Cherry Flavor took place between November 25, 2019, and March 2, 2020. Moreover, shooting locations included Vancouver, British Columbia and the Bridge Studios, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

If anyone is hoping for a second season of Brand New Cherry Flavor, regrettably this won’t be happening. Netflix has listed the show as a limited series, meaning only one season is planned. While it isn’t impossible for a second season to happen if the show proves popular with viewers, it isn’t likely.

As a reminder, Brand New Cherry Flavor will be available for streaming on Netflix on Friday, August 13, 2021.
