Netflix has done some house cleaning in 2017, cutting high-profile, expensive shows like “Sense8” and “The Get Down.”
It’s also killed flops like “Girlboss” and “Gypsy” after only one season, and old favorites like “House of Cards,” which will end after its sixth season.
Over the weekend, Netflix announced the cancellation of “Haters Back Off,” a scripted comedy based on YouTube star Colleen Ballinger’s character, Miranda Sings. The show had two seasons.
In a tweet following the announcement, Ballinger wrote that she was “absolutely devastated” by the news.
Netflix historically has canceled very few shows — only about ten (or up to 13, depending on how you count). But if CEO Reed Hastings gets his way, expect more in the future.
“We’ve canceled very few shows,” Hastings said at the Code Conference in May. “I’m always pushing the content team. We have to take more risk. You have to try more crazy things. Because we should have a higher cancel rate overall.”
Here are the ten shows Netflix has killed, along with their critic and audience ratings from Metacritic.
