One person wrote, “Travellers. I loved that show”. Another added, “I still randomly hear the suspenseful ending credits beat and the name Sally Baxter flash in my head. I was addicted to that show. Characters felt incredibly real.”

Santa Clarita Diet

Someone wrote, “I can’t believe even the star power of Drew Barrymore couldn’t save that one. She was so fun in that show. Loved the chemistry of the whole cast.”

Mindhunter

One person thought they knew why it was canceled, “apparently it was crazy expensive. I saw an article about how they have to use a crazy amount of CGI to make things look like they were back in the time period. Still sad, though. Great show”

I Am Not Okay With This

After some confusion about the title of the show, one person commented, “Oh ya! I reallllly liked that show. What an amazing last episode and foreshadowing of something big to come.”

Archive 81

Someone wrote, “That show was #1 in the top 10 for weeks, but apparently that wasn’t good enough.”

Another added, “They didn’t push it at all. I watch nonstop horror content and in October- the MONTH of horror- I had to find it randomly on a Reddit thread. Otherwise would have had no idea Archive 81 existed.”

The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance

One commenter said, “I never understood this one; surely the majority of the show’s cost was in the production of the sets and puppets? A 2nd season should be significantly lower cost to produce.”

And another complained, “Not only that, the original pitch was for a show that was cheaper and less labor intensive. Netflix were the ones who suggested “doing it right” with expensive sets and puppetry. And then canned it.”

Inside Job

“I really like it. It really shows that these show never know when they are getting the axe either,” someone wrote,  “The last season ends with unanswer question and an obvious setup for the next season and its just canceled. Paradise PD also left on a cliffhanger and then added a bit in the last episode saying telling everyone it left off that way because they didn’t know they were getting canceled until after it was made.”

GLOW

“I really loved GLOW, and it ended on a giant cliffhanger,” one person commented.

Another said, “Came here to comment this!! I heard they handled it pretty poorly too. The season was halfway through filming and they just pulled the plug. RUDE.”

The OA

“I’ll never get over the way they ended the OA which is one of the best shows I have ever seen,” someone wrote.

Another person wrote, “I just rewatched The OA and I’ll forever be upset over how they perfectly set up season 2 in season 1 and they do the same thing for season 3 in season 2 but Netflix calls it a two-parter. Heartbroken”

Marco Polo

“Marco Polo was one of their very first “Netflix originals,” too. I remember reading an article saying the show was causing them to bleed money cause viewership wasn’t there.. but that’s only because it was in the early days of Netflix where majority of people were still watching cable/satellite tv. I bet if Marco Polo released today, it would probably be on their top 10 today list,” someone wrote.

1899

People compared this show to Dark, “Dark just got crazier and crazier and yet was absolutely bulletproof when it came to plot holes. It was a remarkable construction, and it was clear 1899 was planning for the same kind of “layers of the onion” approach where things continue to get wilder. I am massively upset the show was canceled.”

The Society

“Took me way too long to find this comment!” one person wrote. Another added, “Agreed. I was so into this show and now I’ll never know what happens with Grizz and Sam? And Becca’s baby? So many questions I’ll never get answers to.”
