Gentefied Season 3: Is it getting Renewed or Canceled?
Netflix decided not to renew the Gentefied for a third season. They decided this after a month of the release of Gentefied Season 2.
Sadly, even if fans ask for another season, Netflix has decided not to continue and end it with Season 2. Although there are no exact reasons released and explained, reports believe that it might be because of its low rating or not appearing in the Netflix Top 10.
