Every year, we are forced to say some painful goodbyes. It happens without fail, a new series of TV shows are canceled, some loved, some less so. Some shows leave without getting a proper ending to their story, while others get a planned conclusion that won’t leave us hanging. Once upon a time, it was surprising to see streaming service giant Netflix add shows to the list, but those days have come and gone.
Now, Netflix cancels a pretty long list of shows pretty much every year. While many of them didn’t make it past the first or second seasons, there are also long-running shows that come to an end because, well, TV shows just can’t go on forever. After all, the kids in Stranger Things aren’t exactly kids anymore. How much longer could Netflix realistically have waited to see them run around Hawkins chasing monsters?
With that in mind, we’re taking a look at every show Netflix has canceled this year. Thankfully, we’re getting the satisfaction of some of these shows going full development (and may not even technically end this year, depending on how the release schedules pan out). Others, however, are simply gone too soon. Once you’ve made it through this list, be sure to check out our roundup of every canceled show on the network and the streaming landscape this year.
