Bad news for fans of Netflix series Girlboss

Bad news for fans of Netflix series Girlboss

However, it seems Netflix didn't love it as much as we did, because they've made a decision to cancel the show after just one series.

In a series of Instagram stories, executive producer and #Girlboss author Sophia Amoruso discussed the cancellation, stating she was looking forward to "controlling [her] narrative from here on out". "A big, expensive show for a tiny audience is hard even in our model to make that work very long". Much like Sophia Amoruso in 2006, "Girlboss' does not seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up".

This weekend, Netflix opted to cancel the series, which starred Britt Robertson and was based primary on the life of young business tycoon Sophia Amoruso. Amoruso gained public prominence as the founder of the Nasty Gal clothing company, and the 2014 book that formed the basis of the show was a bestseller.

Earlier this month at PGA's Produced By conference, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos discussed the process behind deciding whether or not to cancel a show, reported Deadline.

According to AdNews, Netflix wants to spend closer to one billion dollars this year.

The cancellation comes after Netflix swung the axe on Sense8 after two seasons - with Netflix executives claiming that the show's costly budget was not justified by sufficient viewing figures. "Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I've learned".

Netflix continues its recent streak of cancellations, and its latest victim is none other than freshman comedy series, "Girlboss".

CEO Reed Hastings said last month that the streaming service is going to be a lot more ruthless about the shows it cuts in future, without admitting that some of these shows might have gotten shit ratings.
