Netflix series that were cancelled in 2020, 2019, and 2018

Anne With An E

Date canceled: November 2019

Netflix and CBC canceled the drama in November 2019 after three seasons. Though younger viewers love the show, Sally Catto, general manager of programming for CBC English Television, said that one of the main factors that led to the cancellation of Anne with an E was the fact that it didn’t register enough of an audience boost in the 25-54 age range. “They, unfortunately, didn’t lift enough,” Catto explained. “They just weren’t reaching our specific target.”

The fate of the show, however, was foreshadowed in October of that year when CBC President Catherine Tait said that the Canadian broadcaster would no longer create new shows with Netflix because streaming services, in general, are not required to put a portion of their gross revenue into the Canada Media Fund to support creators. “We’re not going to do deals that hurt the long-term viability of our domestic industry,” Tait said at the time. “A number of countries have done deals, as we did, with Netflix … and over time we start to see that we’re feeding the growth of Netflix, or we’re feeding the growth of Amazon, rather than feeding our own domestic business and industry.”
