Another Netflix Series Canceled After One Season

Another Netflix series has been canceled so shortly after its addition to the streaming service, adding yet another to the graveyard. Writer and executive producer Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect, 30 Rock) and director Christian Ditter (How to Be Single) created Girlboss, an episodic comedy “loosely” inspired by Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling novel and autobiography. The main storyline follows Sophia Robertson and her entrepreneurial endeavors to make money off of vintage fashion items. Starting off as a “rebellious, broke anarchist”, Sophia found and flipped clothes on eBay, quickly creating a multi-million dollar name.

Having only premiered in April of this year, it’s equally surprising and unsurprising that a second season has not been ordered. This is due in part by Netflix founder Reed Hastings statement about wanting to “cancel more shows” and “take more risks”. According to a report by Deadline, there’s more to his words than meets the eyes. Chief Content Officer of Netflix, Ted Sarandos, further clarified the streaming and production company’s way of thinking. He stated that their approach to keeping and doing away with series have changed with the times. During the Produced By conference, Sarandos stated:

“Relative to what you spent, are people watching it? When I say that, a big expensive show for a huge audience is great. A big, expensive show for a tiny audience is hard even in our model to make that work very long.”

It turns out that this may not be the worst cancellation to happen. According to Rotten Tomatoes, Girlboss wasn’t the best in terms of series to pass the time, only carrying an average score of 5.94 out of 10. Of course, that’s according to critics. The audience seemed a bit more lenient with a score of 3.5 out of 5 instead. What do you think of this Netflix series cancellation? Do you feel like the audience is not missing out on much or is there more to it than that? Feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments section below or start your own conversation on Don’t Feed the Gamers official Facebook page.
