All 46 Netflix original TV shows that have been canceled

Summary List PlacementSince first launching its original programming slate in 2013 with “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black,” Netflix has created hundreds of its own TV shows (with 113 new ones already planned for 2020). The company has also canceled dozens of series, often after just one or two seasons. 

Below is a list of all the Netflix original series that were ended unexpectedly or against the plans of creators.

For the purposes of this list, we’re not including coproductions with other networks/studios (like the “Anne with an E” series co-produced by CBC), nor are we listing shows which were renewed for final seasons in agreement with the creators. 

We’ve started with the oldest Netflix original show canceled (“BoJack Horseman”), and gone chronologically up to the most recent (“Teenage Bounty Hunters”). For each entry, we list the date the show first premiered, and the date the news of its cancellation was announced.

Keep reading to see all 46 original shows canceled by Netflix.
