It's now official: Central Park and Swagger, two flagship Apple TV+ series, are canceled. There will therefore be, respectively, neither a third nor a second season for these titles, as announced by the filmmakers in charge of their development. A little hope remains, however, since it happens that other broadcasters sometimes buy the rights, in this type of case. Remember for example Lucifer: after having been abandoned by Fox, its episodes will be renewed by Netflix for three additional seasons.
Central Park: an example to follow for the animation
Central Park is an animated musical comedy. The pitch makes us follow the wanderings of Owen Tillerman and his family, who live in the heart of the gigantic eponymous green space in New York. The life of this park manager is turned upside down when a rich heiress chooses to transform the place by building numerous buildings there, for her own profit.
The The series has been nominated numerous times for the Primetime Emmy Awards. Behind the camera, we find among others the directors Ian Hamilton (Bob’s Burgers, Harley Quinn, DC Super Hero Girls), Mario D’Anna Jr (Lucas, reluctant ant, Motorcity, The Secret Saturdays< /em>) and Tom King (SpongeBob, Space Jam , Habemus Papam).

Basketball in the spotlight on Apple TV+
Swagger , for its part, tells a story (very) freely inspired by the career of the famous American basketball player Kevin Durant, notably with O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Cocaine Bear, Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Path of Justice) chosen to play the title role. The cast also includes Quvenzhané Wallis (Black-ish, American Horror Stories, < em>Fathers and Daughters), Tessa Ferrer (After the Triumph of Your Birth, The Passing Parade, Abducted) and Caleel Harries (Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween,The Loud House: Deuces Wild,Boys in Blue).
Since this summer, viewers subscribing to Apple TV+ can also discover a documentary on basketball player Stephen Curry (see the trailer below). With this, let us remember that They Call Me Magic has had some success on the American streaming platform. This time, as connoisseurs will probably have noticed, the biopic retraces the journey of the famous player Earvin “Magic” Johnson Jr., born in 1959 and considered one of the best of his generation, or even of all time according to certain specialist observers.
Apple TV+: price, availability and alternatives
Apple TV+ originally cost 4.99 euros per month when it launched in France in November 2019. However, the price quickly climbed to 6.99 euros per month, and has just set the bar again higher with a current price billed at 9.99 euros per month. For comparison, today we find a package with advertising for only 5.99 euros per month at Netflix or Disney+. A subscription with announcements would also be under study at Cupertino, but we have not yet seen the color of it for the moment.
To access Apple TV+, you must connect to the service via the Apple TV app. This is installed automatically on most Apple devices, such as iPads, iPhones, iPod touches, Macs and even Apple TV boxes. The platform is also found on dozens of connected TV models, whether from Samsung, LG or even via the Google TV operating system on Chromecast.
