Kirsten Dunst's Showtime Show 'On Becoming A God In Central Florida' Has Been Cancelled; Will Not Proceed With Season Two

Showtime has reversed its decision to renew On Becoming a God in Central Florida for a second season.

The network announced that the series, starring Kirsten Dunst, will not be moving forward due to the pandemic. The series was originally renewed last year, and production was delayed by coronavirus.

“Last year, Showtime renewed On Becoming A God In Central Florida but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were unable to move forward with production on the new season,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “The pandemic has continued to challenge schedules across the board, and although we have made every effort to reunite the cast and crew for a second season, that has become untenable. It is with great regret that we are acknowledging On Becoming a God will not return.”

“We extend our deepest thanks to star and executive producer Kirsten Dunst, creators Robert Funke and Matt Lusky, showrunner Esta Spalding and their fellow executive producers George Clooney, Grant Heslov and Charlie McDowell, the terrific cast and crew, and our partners at Sony Pictures Television.”

The series was “about the cult of free enterprise and one woman’s relentless pursuit of the American Dream.”

Kirsten even earned a Best Actress nomination at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globe Awards for her role.
