Netflix Canceled Shows 1 Season, Resident Evil, First Kill, Hit & Run

Every TV platform has to make hard choices — even Netflix, a company that made close to $2 billion in revenue last year. Sure enough, the streaming service hasn’t shied away from cancelling its low performers or even moderate hits (when it makes sense), especially in recent years.

For example, Netflix axed The Society and I Am Not Okay With This in 2020, and they aren’t the only Netflix originals that never streamed a sophomore season. Scroll down to see which other shows the platform canceled after Season 1.
