Created by Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda, ‘American Vandal’ is a Netflix Original mockumentary web television series which satirizes true crime dramas. It first made its way to viewers’ screens in 2017.
Season 1 of the show premiered on September 15, 2017, and became an instant hit with viewers. The show was also praised far and wide by television critics, prompting Netflix to renew it. Season 2 of the show subsequently premiered on September 14, 2018, much to the delight of fans and critics. However, while viewers and critics were waiting with bated breath for the announcement of Season 3, Netflix, to their dismay, announced that it would not renew the show again. The silver lining is that Netflix’s cancellation does not mean that the show is dead yet. Here’s what we know about the future of ‘American Vandal’.
American Vandal Cast: Who’s in it?
Owing to the fact that the two seasons of the show investigate different cases, the cast of the show is largely season specific. However, the two protagonists of the show are present in both seasons. Tyler Alvarez plays the role of Peter Maldonado, a co-anchor of a morning show at the Hanover High School, and the writer and director of a documentary on true crime called American Vandal. Griffin Gluck is the other constant in the show and plays the role of Sam Ecklund, who is Peter’s best friend and a co-producer of the American Vandal documentary.
Apart from the two aforementioned protagonists, Jimmy Tatro plays Dylan Maxwell, the primary suspect in Season 1. Other notable cast members in Season 1 include Lou Wilson as Lucas Wiley, Jessica Juarez as Brianna Gagne, Camille Hyde as Gabi Granger, Joe Farrell as Jared Hixenbaugh, and Calum Worthy as Alex Trimboli.
Season 2 sees the introduction of Travis Tope as Kevin McClaine, Melvin Gregg as Demarcus Tillman, Taylor Dearden as Chloe Lyman, Camille Ramsey as Mackenzie Wagner, and DeRon Horton as Lou Carter, among others.
In the event that ‘American Vandal’ lives to see a third season, we expect Tyler Alvarez and Griffin Guck to reprise their roles as Peter and Sam respectively.
