Netflix has let viewers in outrage after cancelling their supernatural horror, Chambers, after a single season.
Starring newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose, who is of Apache/Puerto Rican descent, as well as Uma Thurman, the ten episode series tells the story of a girl haunted by mysterious visions and trauma surrounding her donor after receiving a heart transplant.
And viewers of the show, which featured five Native stars in total, have now expressed their dismay at the axing, as they noted the show was 'revolutionary and trailblazing' for indigenous community.

'We’re grateful to creator and showrunner Leah Rachel' for bringing this story to us and to her fellow executive producers Alfonso Gomez Rejon, Steve Gaghan from Super Emotional, Winnie Kemp and Wolfgang Hammer from Super Deluxe, and Jennifer Yale.
'We’re also thankful to the tireless crew, and to our incredible cast, especially Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn and talented newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose.'
While the series didn't fair critically, and has only a 41% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Twitter appeared to be awash with fans of the show who wanted the show's diverse representation to be celebration further.

Tweets included the likes of: #savechambers i can't believe such a revolutionary show might not be renewed for another season. everything about it is so beautiful ! the lead actress is a talented indigenous woman and y'all should go watch chambers on Netflix because representation matters.'
'My heart hurts to hear that #Chambers on @Netflix is cancelled. It’s a trailblazing show for our community with incredible work by Onkwehón:we. @silvanalyrarose- I know this sucks, but just know that we’ll be seeing SO much more from you.'
'This is devastating but not surprising. @Netflix has a long history of anti-indigeneity. They promoted Adam Sandler's Ridiculous6 that was nothing but racism on display more than they did Chambers that was truly revolutionary & provided complex & authentic Native representation.'
'Just when Netflix announces a partnership with Canadian Indigenous media groups, they cancel the groundbreaking U.S. series, Chambers, that was the first series to feature an Indigenous lead and strong positive representation of contemporary natives and communities.'
