Netflix canceled a comedy series after rolling out just one season of the show. The streaming service pulled the plug on “Girlboss,” which debuted its 13-episode freshman season on April 21.
Created by Kay Cannon and based on Sophia Amoruso’s 2014 autobiography “#GIRLBOSS,” the series didn’t exactly wow the critics. Vanity Fair ran a story today posing the question of whether “Girlboss” was Netflix’s “first truly terrible show.”
“Unlike other original [Netflix] series that have gotten the ax, it seems the streaming giant’s Nasty Gal comedy is gone for only one reason: it was just that bad,” Vanity Fair said.
The first season has a grim 32% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
The show stars Britt Robertson, Ellie Reed, Johnny Simmons and Alphonso McAuley, and boasts a lineup of executive producers that includes Charlize Theron along with Cannon and Amoruso.
Netflix has also recently canceled the dramas “The Get Down” and “Sense8.”
