Here Are the Netflix Shows That Will Be Joining Girlboss’s Canceled Status
Netflix has been canceling shows left and right lately, and, frankly, it’s getting a little hard to keep up. The popular streaming service has explained the reason for ditching so many of your faves including Girlboss, Sense8, Bloodline, The Get Down, and Marco Polo, to name a few, citing “too high of a hit ratio.” Still, it doesn’t make it any easier to say goodbye to the rest of the canceled series on this list. Check out what else is joining the ranks of those that have officially gotten the axe, below.
After three seasons, even the show’s star, Stevie Van Zandt (who also happens to be a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band) was shocked by the cancellation. “#Lilyhammer RIP,” he tweeted. “Not my decision. Let’s just say for now the business got too complicated. Very proud of our 24 shows. New ideas on the way.”
After three seasons on A&E, Longmire was initially dropped because its older audience failed to attract advertisers. Netflix picked up the series, keeping it alive for another three seasons, yet fans were ultimately disappointed to find out that the sixth season would be its finale.
Another series that managed to last three seasons on Netflix, Hemlock Grove couldn’t quite match the creeptastic popularity that other shows, such as Stranger Things, garnered. With unfavorable reviews from critics, the plug was pulled in a move that wasn’t really much of a surprise to anyone.
Richie Rich didn’t make it quite as long as some of others on the list, staying around for just two seasons before getting its proverbial pink slip. While Netflix attempted to update this kids comedy — having Richie earn his billions as a result of inventing clean-energy tech — it just couldn’t manage to win over critics or fans.
