Netflix used to renew almost every one of their original shows, but lately, they've been axing some of their fan-favorite shows like The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, GLOW, and Altered Carbon. It leaves viewers with many questions, but the biggest one being: Why? So we go into what factors Netflix looks at when canceling a show.

  • Apparently I'm the only one in the comments who will miss G.L.O.W. Oh well I guess that explains why it got canceled (other than covid) on one hell of a cliffhanger.😔

  • I never started Daredevil since I found out it got cancelled. I'll never forgive Netflix for cancelling Altered Carbon.

  • Netflix cancels shows when contracts are over so that's why must shows on there only get 2 to 3 years that's the contract Netflix over the years have been greedy every year the only shows that I can think that's will get more than 3 are stranger things and the umbrella accadmy

  • Let me guess, less than 1/2 of the shows can go to season 3? Coz 2 seasons (n thus a dozen of episodes) can allow the analyser to plot a tendency curve.

  • so basically all they are saying is nothing will really last more than 2-3 seasons. if lucky 4. for the majority that is. crap way to do things. its why the platform ends up littered with garbage. Netflix Needs to learn quality over quantity.

  • They kept cancelling their best shows. After they cancelled Altered Carbon I was done with it. Now they mainly cater towards young teens and 90% of the shows are a pile do garbage.

    • @Marmik Saini well i have a bad news for you. David fincher himself said that 3rd season might not get made because of “very expensive” budget and low viewership.

    • It's not Cancelled. It's on an indefinite hold until David Fincher finished working on Mank and other projects. David Fincher wants to make five seasons of Mindhunter. He's gonna start working on the Third Season as soon as he's done with Mank.

  • Fun fact: Netflix is in huge debt. They want quantity not quality. Amazon is Amazon, HBO has deep pockets, Disney is huge so Netflix is like the least financially secure. I think it will collapse under debt this decade.

  • I wouldn't mind the cancellations so much if the makers of each series were mandated to not rely so heavily on cliffhanger endings. You can leave some air of mystery while still resolving the story well.

  • I think the biggest problem is that they don't give the opportunity for the shows they cancel to have a conclusion. This potentially puts people off of new shows due to the risk of no conclusion.

  • I think one of the biggest issues for shows on Netflix is their release model. Releasing every episode in a season the same day means that each show gets only 2 weeks in the limelight before the next comes along. Almost all other platforms use a weekly release model which keeps people talking about the shows for weeks on end, hence leading to increased viewership over time. Had I realised if I wanted a show to continue I had to watch it in the first month I'd have stated doing this ages ago, but instead I hold off because I'm busy watching other things

  • Among all the services I am subscribed to, Netflix is the most expensive by a lot and also the most expendable. I bet a show like „undone“ would have been cancelled after the first season where on amazon it was renewed. they dont get that quality keeps people subscribed and not just quantity. Everything worth watching and everything really really special gets cancelled and that just pisses me off constantly. Not long and Netflix is cancelled, there is so much other stuff to watch that I really dont need them anymore...

  • They are not shooting themselves in the foot. It's a basic business model that works very well. That business model does not care about quality. It cares about content quantity which equals active subscriptions. Period. It's a very successful model.

  • I get to the point now where I don’t want to invest my time in something if it’s going to get cancelled after 1 or 2 seasons. There is so much choice with other providers it just doesn’t make sense

  • Some of these are the reason of the decline in quality of Netflix's content. Their exclusives get more generic with each incarnation.

  • This is crazy because I have seen some popular shows get the axe. Now there are some exceptions where it can be explained because there is just disagreement with the original production team and Netflix take Anne with an E for example it was a Netflix that necessarily cost to show to go away it was actually the Canadian producer. Did you see other shells get the chopping block and it just doesn’t make sense I mean they actually had a great comedy one day at a time with a Latino flair to it that was popular and guess what it got cut. Now the show had one season on let’s just say no name cable channel and Next it’s literally coming to CBS this Monday. Anyone who knows anything understands that CBS is where you go to watch comedy. So how do you explain this great show going three seasons on Netflix and then biting the dust. I’m worried of Netflix is eager to get new content out there to hook potential new viewers and getting rid of content that we older subscribers may want.

  • Remember most of these shows should never have existed in the first place. AND, No Show should have more than two seasons. These people just milk these shows for every drop. Do we really want 30 seasons os Simpsons? 9 seasons of how I met your mother? However many seasons Friends ran for? This is a disease.

  • Extend the one month period to the amount of time it would take to watch one episode a week. Some people prefer watching that way. Also there is so much content that people might want to watch 2 to 4 shows at a time, so they can't finish it in a month.
