Every Netflix Original Show Canceled So Far, From Hemlock Grove to 1899

Netflix’s reputation for canceling shows early is well deserved.

It’s been almost a decade since Netflix started creating its own original content and building up an extremely diverse library of content. It all started with the political thriller House of Cards, and from there, the streaming service has created hundreds of shows. While the platform keeps producing popular new shows, they have a tendency to cancel shows before their time.

Here is a list of every Netflix original show that has been canceled so far, from the oldest to the most recent cancelation.

Hemlock Grove – 2014 After 3 Seasons

Hemlock Grove is set in a peculiar town in Pennsylvania where people are divided between those who live in poverty and those who are wealthy and where everyone has a secret. On top of that, this town hosts terrible creatures that threaten the residents’ lives.

The show ran for three seasons, and it was canceled in September 2014. As such, the production team went into the third season knowing it would be the last so they could provide an appropriate ending for Hemlock Grove. The reason for the cancelation was never revealed.

While Netflix revealed that, on its first weekend, the show was more viewed than House of Cards, there’s no way of knowing if viewership increased or not with seasons 2 and 3, as Netflix doesn’t make its stats public. Moreover, the first season didn’t do well with the critics and was seen as messy.

While it was critically acclaimed and was nominated for several Emmys and Golden Globes, Bloodline was canceled in September 2016, with a run of three seasons. While the concrete reason is unknown, one of the reasons could have been related to Florida cutting its tax incentive programs which would make the show much more expensive to make.

However, they later commissioned a feature-length special to provide the series with a more appropriate ending.
