Netflix has done some housecleaning in the last few months, cutting high-profile shows like “Sense8″ and “The Get Down,” and killing flops like “Girlboss” and “Gypsy” after only one season.
The streaming service most recently canceled “Chelsea,” comedian Chelsea Handler’s talk show, after two seasons. “Chelsea” aired three days a week, with new episodes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Netflix historically has canceled very few shows — only about nine (or up to 11, 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.”
