According to Briefly SA, in an interview with SA's controversial podcaster, MacG Pearl said she was paid a cancelation fee after the second season got canned. "When they said Queen Sono is cancelled, I moped for like three days but we got together, had the conversation we needed to have and they gave me my cancellation fee,” said Pearl.

Queen Sono got canned in late 2020 due to problems related to COVID-19. “We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with season 2 of Queen Sono. We are incredibly proud of the Diprente team for sharing their audacious vision and bringing it to life with Netlflix. A huge thank you to our fans across the world for the love shared for our first African Original series. Netflix is also grateful to the amazing efforts shown by the cast and crew for their stellar efforts in creating this show for our members around the world. We’ll continue to work closely with South Africa’s creative industry to keep producing more compelling ‘Made-in-South Africa’ stories.” said a Netflix Spokesperson.

Pearl paid tribute to the cast and crew of the show for their amazing work. “It’s so incredible that we as a team got a lifetime opportunity to make history together as there will never be another ‘first’ African Netflix Original Series. I’m proud of the work we did, but everything happens for a reason. I am excited about what the future holds.” said Pearl Thusi, Lead Actress for Queen Sono.

A petition was recently started by a fan who believed that the show should come back with a second season and it gained momentum on social media. A fan even wrote "I'm definitely signing the petition, the show was so good. It had a slow start though which is why I understand people who watched a few episodes and say it was boring. Your acting was amazing though, I was so ready to see you in a spy role after Quantico"

Pearl appreciated the overwhelming love and support, “This type of love is actually unbelievable. I didn’t expect to get so much support from fans of the show, ” she wrote on Twitter.
