Netflix releases hundreds of original series every year, and as the streaming service tries to top the number of shows it adds to its library year after year, it’s hard to keep track which programs have already been cancelled. Netflix also has a habit of cancelling shows quietly, leaving a lot of fans in the dark about the fate of their favorite series. Not sure if the streamer has pulled the plug on the shows you watch? Read on for a list of the cancelled Netflix shows.
Hit & Run
Date cancelled: September 2021
Though well-received by critics and audiences alike, Hit & Run was cancelled by Netflix partly because of its expensive production cost. Filmed in New York and Israel, the nine-episode first season of the Israeli-American thriller took three years to produce due to the COVID-related industry shutdown that took place in the first year of the coronavirus pandemic.
Hit & Run also didn’t seem to attract enough viewers to warrant a second season. After premiering on Netflix on August 6th, the series managed to break into Nielsen’s Streaming Top 10 the following week at No. 8. That, however, was the only time it appeared on the overall weekly chart, which Netflix originals like Outer Banks and Virgin River recently topped.
