I Am Not Okay With This

7 Cancelled Netflix Original Shows And Their Reasons

Yeah, same here. We weren’t okay with whatever Netflix tried to pull here, by cancelling this show after the first season, either. This 2020 dark comedy was a lot more fun than many of the ongoing shows on Netflix. The messed-up life of Sydney took a sharp turn after she discovered that she had some uncontrollable powers. Only, this sharp turn was not such a good one. The show was amazing and people were enjoying it. But then it was cancelled after its very first season. The pandemic outbreaks was the culprit, but fans surely did not like this idea as it was supposed to have one more season. Not that we can blame Netflix for this one, but we do hope to hear some assuring news about the possibility of the next season after the situation gets better. 

October Fraction

Something like spy kids, only so much more. October Fraction was cancelled after its first season. The show was based on a comic book and offered a lot more than usual. A family that hunts monsters, well, the drama was, of course, bound to overflow.. The reason for the cancellation of this show left us confused. According to data, the show was one of the most binged. However, rotten tomatoes did not show much love. The confusion led to a lot of unclarity, leading the show to be cancelled after a season.

V Wars

First of all, the show had Ian Somerhalder. Secondly, he was a vampire! Before even moving to the plot, most of the people were already hooked to the show for these two reasons. However, V Wars was cancelled after a season. Seems like Netflix was not that happy with the number of eyeballs the show was catching. Netflix has no public rating shown on any portal. Due to this, there is no final confirmation about the reason. However, nothing can change the fact that the fans surely were not too happy with this decision.

Unlike some other shows, Sense8 needed no official public rating released by Netflix. The show was a hit for sure. People were loving it and it had already made a strong fan base.  Even though it was a great sci-fi show, it was cancelled after two seasons. According to Netflix, the reason why they nixed this one was because of the lack of balance between the show budget and its earning. The show was being shot in different countries but the earnings were not good enough to carry on the hustle. It’s just sad, that’s what it is.

The Society

No society can thrive without law and order. Of course, there are many other aspects that are at play here, but law is vital. The Society was a bit of mystery that also showed what happens in anarchy. The show was good and engaged a large audience. However, it was cancelled after the initial season. The reason behind this cancelation, as stated by the streaming platform, is the pandemic. Again, cannot exactly blame Netflix for this one.
