Willow’s “Cancelation” Slammed By Claims of Pushing an Anti-Representation Trend

On the surface, the cancelation of Willow is a simple business decision that comes down to nothing more than the cost of production against the revenue the project gained, which by many accounts, was not a great deal. While showrunner Jon Kasdan has discussed the second season of Willow, saying it has been mapped out and could still go ahead sometime in the future, that hasn’t stopped a huge backlash on social media calling the move anti-representational. For some, the series’ demise marks the latest in a long line of shows featuring prominent queer characters and romances to have been canceled in the last few months.
