In an interview with Vulture, Rachel Shukert claims that the show’s viewership was in line with expectations and explains Netflix’s final decision. She also discussed her plans for ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ season 3, stating that she wants to make it something special. She goes on to say that she wanted to write a story that would show the girls growing up as they approached the high school and that she would miss working with the cast.
“I really wanted to do a Super Special. I was trying to figure out, Should they go to New York? Should they get snowed in? It depended on where they would let us shoot, and I was excited about telling a story that would see them into high school — not wrap everything up but honour what we made”.
Shukert went on to say that season two ended on a high note. It was emotionally satisfying for her. Even though she now misses the girls, they had more stories to tell. She adored working with them, describing them as “extraordinary actresses and people”.
