30. Blockbuster  

Cancelled: December 2022 

This is not the first time, Netflix is at the fault for the death of Blockbuster. The comedy series, made by   NBC Universal veteran Vanessa Ramos, was about the last remaining Blockbuster store trying to keep its doors open but after a lacklustre first season, it won’t be returning. The title never featured in the official Netflix global top 10s and was critically panned.

29. Warrior Nun  

Cancelled: December 2022 

After getting such reviews from its loyal fanbase, a show like Warrior Nun got cancelled from facing the chop. Unfortunately, the writing was on the wall too early on after the release of season 2 provided its viewership trended far below Raising Dion and Fate: The Winx Saga, two other shows cancelled in their two seasons in 2022. The cancellation joins quite a large library of LGBTQ-focused teen shows that have been cut short over the years. 

28. The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself 

Cancelled: December 2022 

The film has been produced by Andy Serkis, The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself was a fantasy YA series based on the books by Sally Green. The series had been renamed on Netflix a few weeks after its run, likely serving as a last-ditch attempt at generating some buzz, but sadly, it wasn’t enough. 

27. Queer Eye: Germany 

Cancelled: December 2022 

The German-Version of the US Queer Eye, won’t return to Netflix for a second outing. The most interesting fact is how this was cancelled. It was overhead at a dinner conversation, and the show was cancelled and eventually confirmed by Netflix. 

26. The Midnight Club 

Cancelled: December 2022  

The first Mike Flanagan show has been designed for having a second season won’t be getting one. After a weak start and a massive drop in viewership between weeks 2 and 3, The Midnight Club won’t return for a season 2. The cancellation also coincides with the fact that Flanagan has taken his overall deal away from Netflix over to Prime Video.

Helen Wan’s legal drama based on the novel failed to secure a second season at Netflix despite the head of drama at the company expecting big things to come. It was one of the worst-performing debut shows in the top 10s of the year and, sadly, won’t be returning for future seasons.

One of the numerous local-language spinoffs to Netflix reality shows was the Japanese Love is Blind entry which got a splashy season 2 renewal (Netflix Tudum covered it). Still, new reporting suggests that Netflix has pulled the plug. According to CinemaToday, the series would no longer be moving forward.

First announced in late 2021, Netflix was supposed to be adapting the Dark Horse Comics title and while they did complete filming, the project was scrapped midway through post-production. The series was going to star Abubakr Ali, Jaime Ray Newman, Julian Black Antelope, and Madeline Zima. 

18. Resident Evil 

Cancelled: August 2022 

Resident Evil Reviews out of the gate for Resident Evil weren’t good.

17. First Kill  

Cancelled: August 2022 

Netflix’s new vampire LGBTQ series got off to a good start but things quickly went downhill according to statistics like top 10 hourly figures and completion data, meaning that after two months, it was quietly cancelled.

16. Q-Force 

Cancelled: June 2022

15. The Chair 

Cancelled: Unclear 

Officially we’re yet to hear about the future of The Chair but by most accounts and based purely on performance, we can pretty much safely assume the show will not be returning. We do believe it’s not returning because Sandra Oh, the main star of the show, spoke to Variety in early 2022, saying that she guesses it’s “not happening”. 

14. Adventure Beast 

Cancelled: June 2022 

It is exclusively reported the fact that Adventure Beast is “unlikely” to return to Netflix according to one of the producers on the project. You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t even noticed the animated series added to Netflix in late 2021 but despite good reviews, the show is not expected to return.

Cancelled: June 2022 

The show has been created by Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell, this experimental adult-animated series involved you taking trips into trippy worlds within the show’s universe simulator.

10. Raising Dion 

Cancelled: April 2022 

First premiering in October 2019, it took the show over 2 and a half years for the follow-up season to arrive on Netflix, and sadly, it didn’t perform well enough to justify a third season. 

9. Space Force 

Cancelled: April 2022 

The writing was perhaps on the wall for Space Force even before the second season was released on Netflix. The show faced big budget cuts and a move to Vancouver, hoping to bring the costs down.

This Netflix co-production with France’s Canal+ quietly dropped onto Netflix in September 2021. Sadly, the show failed to make much of an impact despite starring Elisabeth Shue.

One of the first major debuts shows on Netflix in 2022 was Archive 81, a new horror series based on a podcast series of the same name. While the show did top Netflix’s top 10s, there’s evidence that viewership drop-off between episodes could’ve been the reason for the early demise of Archive 81.

Cancelled: 11th March 2022 

First debuting in October 2020, The Baby-Sitters Club came from Rachel Shukert and eventually went on to run for two seasons on Netflix but won’t return for a third. 

Frank Smith from Walden Media said:

The new comedy series told the story of three Latino cousins trying to keep their grandfather’s dream alive by keeping their taco show afloat in a fast-changing neighbourhood. 

2. Cooking with Paris 

Cancelled:  17th January 

Although the bigger question is why was it given a series in the first place, it turns out there wasn’t a strong enough audience for Paris Hilton’s cooking show to justify a second season. 

Deadline confirms that Netflix has opted to not renew Cooking with Paris for a second season despite the show appearing in the top 10s in Australia for 5 days and in Canada for a single day. It did not appear in the US top 10s. The series featured the media personality cooking simple recipes in her lavish kitchen alongside celebrity guests, including Kim Kardashian West, Nikki Glaser, Demi Lovato, and Lele Pons.  The new series has got a 5.3 on IMDb with a 34 on Metacritic.

1. Another Life (Season 3) 

Cancelled: 21st February 2022 

Netflix had cancelled Another Life. We can assume the series had been dropped by Netflix as early as December 2021, thanks to a tweet from Katie Sackhoff that heavily hinted at the show’s fate. 

After its own loyal fan following it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Another Life was cancelled. The series was unable to impress the fans and critics alike and simply didn’t have an audience large enough for Netflix to invest more money.
