Netflix keeps canceling shows — and I’m losing interest : Read more
I am in violent agreement. After the untimely cancellation of shows like The OA, Haunting of Hill House (Bly Manor does NOT count), Daybreak, and most recently Away, I vowed to limit my Netflix originals to movies and obvious limited run series.

When Netflix first launched, they raged about the networks doing the exact same thing. Now that they are part of a comfortable oligarchy, they can engage in all the hypocrisy they want.

The Haunting Of Hill house wasn’t canceled though. It’s an anthology series just like American Horror Story. And Bly Manor DOES count because it’s part of that series. That’s how the creator and director of the show wanted it to be, not Netflix

I feel that Netflix cancelling shows isn’t the problem. I have always been an advocate of throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what sticks. The problem is that producers and show creators don’t quite get the formula yet.

Their desire to create a “hit” leaves the most annoying of tropes, the season ending cliffhanger. If show creators, and by extension Netflix producers, created encapsulated seasons, we wouldn’t have this problem. If a show is a hit but doesn’t have that cliffhanger, the creators can always find a new story to tell.

Bridgerton is a great example of this. Netflix is the perfect medium for long-format movies, not serials. Once producers get their heads around this, there will be far less disappointment and much greater experimentation and risk for both creators and viewers.
