Bad news for Netflix users. The streaming platform has just canceled one of its productions. In 2023, the company with the red N has decided not to not renew several of its series. We think in particular of Valeria, Sex/Life, Titan or even The tailor. Other big productions simply ended this year. This is the case, for example, of The Crown which has just revealed today its season 6 or even Sex Education. Today, Netflix announced the cancellation of one of its series.
Fans of the Grishaverse are going to be very disappointed. The streaming platform has in fact decided not to renew Shadow and Bone. Those who followed this series were impatiently waiting to discover season 3, but it will never see the light of day. Shadow and Bone told the story of cartographer Alina Starkov. Immersed in a fantastical universe, this heroine was endowed with powers that could change the course of her world at war. This series was not the only one to have been stopped by Netflix. The platform has also announced the non-renewal of Glamourous, Agent Elvis, Farzar And Captain Fall.

Netflix: audiences in free fall
Series Shadow and Bone had reached no less than 50 million households in the first month following the release of its first season. For the second, they have dropped to 20 million. The cancellation of this production is therefore explained by this drop in audience. The writers’ strike also had a negative impact on Shadow and Bone. On X (formerly Twitter), fans of the series did not hesitate to express their disappointment and dissatisfaction. We could notably read this type of remarks: “I’m frankly disgusted”, “I’m going to cry”, “It’s really so bad”or even “But no, I don’t agree”. Netflix now faces a lot of competition with the arrival of new streaming platforms. We can therefore expect other cancellations in the coming months.
