There was a time when this streaming site’s premium service acquired this show. Those who were fans of Cobra kai and The Karate Kid or YouTube creators like MatPat might still love this show.

Created by Shawn Simmons, the first season consisted of 10 episodes, and it debuted in January 2019 on YouTube Premium. A 16 years old Wayne (played by Mark McKenna) turns into a vigilante after the death of his father. Instead of turning into a depressed kid, the 16 years old go out to right the wrongs. Before setting out to turn things up, he meets Del (Ciara Bravo), who is the only person who can handle damaged and awkward people like Wayne.

The viewers loved the pair of teens and their journey while trying to avoid the cops, Del’s father (Dean Winters) and brothers, and other people. The series tells a twisted tale, a burst of huge laughter, and maniacal action. In short, this series is worth taking a chance on and a binge-worthy story. Unfortunately, this series got canceled in August 2019 by the streaming service. It happened after Wayne received a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

After the show got a second chance on a larger platform, some viewers gave it a shot. And currently, the series has received a five-star rating on the site.
