Remember a decade ago when Netflix was the streaming app to watch everything on (and even at one point the only one to get Friends?!) Well, times have certainly changed, because instead of being one of the favorite streaming services, it’s gotten a bit of a reputation over the years. For what, you may ask? Chances are you already know what we mean; Netflix is now known for canceling their original series in two seasons or less.
First, it was Sense8, then it was the Baby-Sitters Club, and now the two newest victims are Inside Job and 1899. And if you’ve been on Twitter for the past 24 hours, then you know how fans are losing their minds over the sudden cancellation of fan-favorite animated series Inside Job.
When Netflix cancels a show, fans are often left disgruntled and without closure (99.9 percent of the time, there’s an insane cliffhanger we’ll never get the answers to!) We’re in 2023 now, and it’s still looking bleak for Netflix shows.
According to What’s on Netflix, Netflix bases its decisions on renewals and cancellations on how many people watch the show, if/how quickly they finish whatever is released, and budget constraints. However, fans have been recently calling that methodology out, due to the fact that many beloved shows get axed for virtually no reason.
If you’re as angry as Twitter is right now, then let’s take a look back at the good shows Netflix decided to cancel in two seasons or less.
