When you’re a streaming giant like Netflix, you make a lot of TV shows. Of course, when you make a bunch, that means you are eventually going to have to cancel some to make room for the new ones. For Netflix in 2018, that meant 14 different shows went down swinging.
Of course, there’s the higher profile cancellations, like a number of the series Netflix made with Marvel. Beyond those, though, there’s a surprising number of shows you might have missed along the way that were canceled after a single season. What’s more, there are some heavy hitters that became breakout hits on the streaming service and sadly had to say goodbye this year.
So as we look forward to 2019 and what will surely be hundreds of new TV shows and original movies from Netflix, let’s take a moment to reflect on the series, good and bad, that we’re saying goodbye to. Whether it’s a show like Lady Dynamite or the carbon copy of The Soup that Netflix called The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, pay your respects to the shows we list.
This is Netflix, though. They’ll never really be lost. Instead, they’ll be buried somewhere in the algorithm for you to find again one day and relive the glory.
