13 TV shows Netflix canceled even though critics loved them

Published by Business Insider on Mon, 24 Feb 2020

Netflix often sees little value in long-running TV shows, which has led to some critically acclaimed series getting the boot early in their runs.We looked at 13 Netflix originals beloved by critics that were canceled, from "Glow" to "Bojack Horseman" to, most recently, "Atypical."Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Netflix often doesn't like long-running TV shows, and sometimes that means great shows get the ax early.The streaming giant has canceled plenty of shows that upset fans but were panned by TV critics, such as "Everything Sucks!" and "Gypsy." But it's canceled ones that were critically acclaimed, too.Netflix often doesn't see the value in shows that exceed 30 episodes (usually two to three seasons) because they become too expensive and too difficult for new viewers to jump into, Deadline reported last year. That means shows like "American Vandal," "One Day at a Time," and more have been given the boot earlier than fans, and critics, would have hoped.The latest Netflix critical darling to get the ax is "Atypical," which Netflix announced on Monday it renewed for a fourth and final season."BoJack Horseman" is another beloved Netflix series that recently said goodbye. It managed to make it to six seasons before getting cut, which implies it ended on its own terms. But creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg confirmed that it was Netflix's decision and he called out the streaming giant for canceling shows too quickly, referring to "Tuca and Bertie," which he produced.We've rounded up 13 great TV shows that Netflix has canceled. We highlighted shows that received an average score over 85% and ranked them based on critic scores (we broke ties with audience scores).
