Netflix Has Just Cancelled One Of Its Most Beloved Shows

Netflix Has Just Cancelled One Of Its Most Beloved Shows
It seems Netflix is really cutting back on its original output lately. At least, when it comes to TV series.

Over the summer, the streaming giant brought the axe down on a number of well-received and beloved shows, including Altered Carbon, I Am Not Okay With This, The Society and, of course, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, among others. Yes, the past few months have seen the company cut a lot of fan favorites and now comes another blow.

Deadline is reporting today that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will unfortunately not be receiving a second season. The fantasy epic is actually a reboot of a cult classic and without a doubt ranked as some of the genre’s finest output of recent years. At least, as far as the small screen goes. With an 88% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a whopping 95% from audiences, it seemingly went over well with everyone.

It's game over for another Netflix original.

"Our history also includes productions that are enduring, often finding and growing their audience over time and proving again and again that fantasy and science fiction genres reflect eternal messages and truths that are always relevant.

Altered Carbon Star Says He’s Disappointed But Not Surprised By The Cancellation

Altered Carbon Star Says He’s Disappointed But Not Surprised By The Cancellation
Netflix aren’t really known for canceling a lot of their original shows, but over 20 in-house projects have been canned after just one season, and most of them never really managed to capture the public’s imagination, which is why they flew largely under the radar. However, three recent cancellations drew plenty of backlash from fans, especially when two of them had already been renewed.

I Am Not Okay With This and The Society both appealed to roughly the same demographic, and subscribers were up in arms when the streaming service backtracked on their initial decision to have both return for a second run of episodes. Altered Carbon was also given the boot, of course, although the sci-fi series at least managed to last for two seasons. All things considered, it looked as though Netflix were trying to cut back on their lavish spending, even in a year where they

Products featured are independently selected by our editorial team and we may earn a commission from purchases made from our links.

It’s easy (and mostly correct) to assume that the majority of superhero television is based on comics. But Hollywood loves existing IP, which means there are plenty of other series on TV right now based on comic books or graphic novels that have nothing to do with super powers or saving the day.

Comics are much more than caped crusaders — graphic novels run the same genre gamut as literary novels, from journalism to sci-fi and plenty in between. Below, we’ve rounded up a bunch of TV series that you might not have realized were based on comic books. Read on to find out where you can watch each show and, more importantly, where to find the graphic novels that inspired them.

ABC Cancels ‘Stumptown’ Due to Covid-19, Reversing Season 2 Renewal

ABC Cancels ‘Stumptown’ Due to Covid-19, Reversing Season 2 Renewal
Stumptown” has been canceled by ABC after one season due to Covid-related circumstances, TheWrap has learned.

The Cobie Smulders-led drama was picked up for a second season in May, but on Wednesday the network was forced to reverse its decision due to scheduling concerns, according to an individual familiar with the matter. The studio behind the series, ABC Signature, will shop the show to other outlets.

The decision comes as the network’s fall schedule begins to take shape. Initially announced back in May with a scripted-heavy slate — including the planned second season of “Stumptown” — ABC has since shifted the schedule around as its various series have begun to return to production in recent weeks. Several of the unscripted and comedy series that have been able to resume filming have received premiere dates across the coming weeks, but none of the network’s dramas have yet been slated.

Netflix Will Release More Originals In 2021 Than They Did In 2020

Netflix Will Release More Originals In 2021 Than They Did In 2020
Having pledged to spend almost $20 billion on original content this year, Netflix have been justifying their huge outlay with a series of massive successes over the last few months, including several of their Top 10 most-watched movies ever. And with the likes of Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, David Fincher’s Mank and The Haunting of Bly Manor still to come, 2020 could well end up being their best year ever in for in-house productions in terms of quality.

However, the streaming service has also faced backlash for canceling popular shows I Am Not Okay With This and The Society after initially renewing both of them for a second season, while costly sci-fi series Altered Carbon was also axed in the wake of rumors that Netflix were set to cut back on such lavish spending in the future.

Those claims would appear to be wide of the mark,

Lucifer Final Season Episode Count Revealed, And it's Short!
We will definitely be saying goodbye to Lucifer with its sixth season. 

That much we've known for a few months now. 

But there has been questions about how many episodes the final season will be comprised of, and we now have an answer. 

TV Line is reporting that it will be a short and sweet affair, with just eight episodes, marking the least amount of episodes in any season of the show. 

The announcement means that fans have 16 episodes with Lucifer Morningstar remaining before the series rides off into the sunset. 

The good news is that fans are getting more episodes than anticipated. 

Lucifer Season 5 was set to be the final season, with Netflix ordering just eight installments, but the streamer later upped the episode order. 

Then, to the surprise of fans across the globe, Netflix announced it had reversed its decision to end the series with its fifth season,

Amazon Scraps ‘Cortes y Moctezuma’ Limited Series Starring Javier Bardem

Amazon Scraps ‘Cortes y Moctezuma’ Limited Series Starring Javier Bardem
Amazon will not return to production on the big-budget limited series “Cortes y Moctezuma” due to increased production costs caused by Covid-19, the streamer said Thursday.

Ordered in 2018, the four-episode miniseries starred Javier Bardem as Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes, the 16th-century colonizer who led a rebellious expedition to the heart of King Montezuma II’s Aztec empire.

“Due to the production constraints created by the Covid-19 global pandemic, Amazon Studios and Amblin Partners are unable to move forward with production on our Cortés y Moctezuma series,” Amazon and Amblin said in a joint statement. “In the current climate, there is unfortunately no way to remount the production in the near future to achieve the scale and scope that was intended and that the series deserves. We have nothing but admiration and respect for Javier, Tenoch, Yoshira, Gael, Diego, Steve Zaillian, and the entire cast and crew of the series and

Netflix Reveals The Top 10 Most-Watched TV Shows For August

Netflix Reveals The Top 10 Most-Watched TV Shows For August
Netflix‘s TV division has been under a lot of scrutiny recently, with the streaming service facing the wrath of fans after canceling I Am Not Okay With This and The Society despite having already renewed them for second runs, while Altered Carbon was also given the boot and The Big Show Show became the latest in a long line of originals to be canned after a single season.

Even though the company seem to be cutting costs more frequently than subscribers have become accustomed to, it isn’t all doom and gloom, with popular fantasy series Warrior Nun being given the green light for more episodes and critically-acclaimed German sci-fi Biohackers also getting picked up again just weeks after the first season dropped.

Then there’s the massive success of The Umbrella Academy, which further solidified its reputation as one of Netflix’s most popular in-house titles by dominating

Netflix Cancels Another Original Show After Just 1 Season

Netflix Cancels Another Original Show After Just 1 Season
Having already wielded the axe and canceled The Society and I Am Not Okay With This after just one season despite originally renewing both for a second run, it appears that Netflix might be in the midst of some serious cost-cutting measures. Fans might have been furious that two of their favorites had been canned, but with the streaming giant never releasing any official viewing figures for either, it seems likely that they simply weren’t popular enough to justify the expense.

One recently-canceled show that they did release the data for though was Altered Carbon, and drawing in just 2.5 million viewers in the first seven days for season 1 isn’t a good look for what you would imagine to be one of their most costly efforts to produce. And the fact that the numbers weren’t even revealed for season 2 would make you think that it proved to be even less successful among subscribers.

Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love & The Big Show Show Both Canceled at Netflix

Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love & The Big Show Show Both Canceled at Netflix
It's game over for another two Netflix shows.

The streamer has pulled the plug on both The Big Show Show and Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love, according to Deadline.

Ashley Garcia: Genius In Love (also known as The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia) starred Paulina Chávez as “the world’s only 15-and-a-half-year-old robotics genius engineer and rocket scientist,” per the series’ official description.

“[When she] gets the chance to work for a prestigious company, she moves across the country to live with her fun-loving Uncle Victor, a pro football player turned high school coach who’s never met a responsibility he can’t shirk.”

The first part premiered in February, with Part 2 following in July.

The Big Show Show, which launched on April 6, was led by Paul Wight (aka WWE Superstar The Big Show) as a fictional version of himself, as well as Allison Munn, Reylynn Caster, Juliet Donenfeld, and Lily Brooks O’Briant.

Netflix Have Canceled Over 20 Shows After Just One Season

Netflix Have Canceled Over 20 Shows After Just One Season
Netflix have been facing the wrath of their subscribers recently after canceling I Am Not Okay With This and The Society after just one season, despite originally renewing both for a second run. Fans instantly went online to criticize the streaming service for their decision and launch petitions to try and bring them back, but there’s no chance that the company will change their mind.

Having pledged to spend almost $20 billion on original content this year alone, the financial effects that the Coronavirus pandemic is wreaking on the global economy will force Netflix to tighten their belt, which is also reportedly one of the major reasons why expensive sci-fi series Altered Carbon was canned as well.

By churning out so many in-house movies and TV shows on an annual basis, a lot of them are bound to fall through the cracks, and if the projects in question don’t

Netflix Is Adding 45 New Movies/TV Shows This Week
September is nearly upon us, which means that Netflix will be adding a whole host of new movies and TV shows to their content library on the first day of the month, as they continue to assert their dominance over the competition in the streaming wars. If anything, the company could do with the focus shifting to pre-existing titles after finding themselves in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently.

As well as the huge backlash that greeted the controversial first poster for French coming-of-age drama Cuties, Netflix drew criticism after canceling popular shows I Am Not Okay With This and The Society despite previously announcing that both had been renewed for second seasons, while Altered Carbon was also axed in what looks to be just the latest in a long line of cost-cutting measures.

Altered Carbon Reportedly Being Shopped To Other Streaming Services
It would appear that not even Netflix are immune to the financial impact that the Coronavirus is set to cause the entertainment industry, with Hollywood bracing itself for a loss of up to $20 billion in revenue, which is coincidentally roughly the same amount the streaming service had pledged to spend on original content this year alone.

Having already renewed fan favorite shows I Am Not Okay With This and The Society for second seasons, Netflix swiftly backtracked on their decision and canceled them altogether, something that didn’t go down too well with subscribers. Expensive sci-fi series Altered Carbon was also canned shortly after, as reports swirled that the company were trying to reign in their rampant spending.

It was claimed that Altered Carbon was initially planned to run for five seasons, and while that obviously won’t happen at Netflix anymore, we’re now hearing that the show might

Netflix Just Renewed A Buzzy New Sci-Fi Show For Season 2

Netflix Just Renewed A Buzzy New Sci-Fi Show For Season 2
Based on the events of the last few days you’d think that Netflix were intent on taking as many of their less cost-effective shows as possible around the back of their headquarters and sending them the way of Old Yeller, but you’ve read that headline correctly, and the streaming service have indeed renewed one of their most recent hits for a second season.

I Am Not Okay With This, The Society and Altered Carbon may have all bitten the bullet and sent fans into a furious meltdown as a result, but Warrior Nun was recently rewarded with a sophomore run, and now German sci-fi series Biohackers has officially been given the go-ahead to gear up for new episodes as well.

Netflix’s decision still seems to be a financially-motivated one though, with the Europe-based filming for Warrior Nun and Biohackers no doubt working out a lot cheaper than

Altered Carbon Fans Petition Netflix To Bring Back The Show

Altered Carbon Fans Petition Netflix To Bring Back The Show
Petitions are a very strange thing in today’s information and technology-heavy world, because it doesn’t usually matter who they’re aimed at or what they’re petitioning for, the subjects never really tend to pay any attention. These days, social media campaigns are the preferred method for fans wanting to get a point across, as evidenced by disenfranchised Justice League supporters willing the Snyder Cut into existence thanks to a relentless two and a half year movement.

On the other hand, petitions are kind of just… there. People might very well sign them in huge numbers, but Brie Larson is still here to stay as Captain Marvel, Anne with an E is very much not coming back to Netflix despite 900,000 subscribers demanding otherwise, and the chances of Danny DeVito replacing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine are sadly nonexistent.

Netflix Reportedly Has A Budgetary Problem, Trying To Make Things Cheaper

Netflix Reportedly Has A Budgetary Problem, Trying To Make Things Cheaper
Despite being the runaway leaders in the streaming wars with over 183 million subscribers, Netflix have always been fairly secretive when it comes to their business model. The company only seem to release viewership numbers when one of their projects turns out to be a massive success, meaning that nobody really knows how popular the majority of their content is among customers.

You would also think they possess a bottomless pit of cash based on the sheer volume of expensive productions that fall under their purview, with Michael Bay’s 6 Underground and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman costing at least $150 million each, Dwayne Johnson’s Red Notice rumored to be in the same ballpark and the recent announcement that they’re stumping up $200 million for the Russo brothers to direct blockbuster espionage thriller The Gray Man.
