Even though Netflix’s dark comedy Insatiable only lasted two seasons, it was a definitely a good run. After the premiere of the second season, in the fall of 2019, the streaming platform announced its cancellation in February of 2020.
Still, it has to be said that Debbie Ryan does a fantastic job at playing Patty, a formerly overweight teen that returns as a skinny avenger out to seek justice against everybody whoever bullied her. The series finale aired in October 2019, and its definitely worth a watch.
SMILF started out as a successful comedy show that premiered on Showtime. The show's name is apparently an acronym for "Single MILF". It stars Frankie Shaw, Miguel Gomez and Samara Weaving, in a show about a young single mother and her struggles to find work-life balance. A few of the show's actresses raised concerns about being required to perform nude sex scenes, as well as various other misconducts that were allegedly performed on the set.
The show had a relatively tiny audience, with less than a million viewers in its debut, but managed to hold on for two seasons before being canceled due to low ratings and the horrible mishaps and controversy that surrounded its production. Showtime initially considered canceling the show on the second season's fourth episode, when the drama was at a peak, but chose to drag it out until the end of the season before putting it on the guillotine.
Friends From College
Netflix had a short flirt with the show Friends from College , a Netflix original series about the adventures of a group of 40-year-old Harvard alumni who live in New York. The show features comedy favorites Keegan-Michael Key, from the popular Key & Peele sketches, as well as Cobie Smulders, who's best known for her roles as Robin in How I Met Your Mother , and S.H.I.E.L.D agent Maria Hill in many of Marvel's cinematic universe films. Friends From College lasted for two seasons totaling 16 episodes.
Friends From College received poor reception from critics, with a rating of 24% on Rotten Tomatoes and 44 out of 100 on Metacritic. It's not a surprise that the show was canceled by Netflix a few weeks after the release of its second season, considering that it received poor to mixed reviews from viewers as well. The show’s director and co-creator, Francesca Delbanco, confirmed its demise on Twitter, writing, “Friends from College will not be returning for a third season. Thanks to everyone who watched it. Happy Presidents’ Day!”
13 Reasons Why
By this point in TV history, everybody knows that stretching a high school drama beyond high school simply does not work. So, Netflix decided to be smart and end the popular series 13 Reasons Why on a high note. Especially since the praise for the once highly-liked show has gone down significantly as seasons go by.
Brian Yorkey's teen drama is coming to an end after four seasons, with its series finale airing in 2020. If you're in the mood for some teenage mystery, 13 Reasons Why should definitely be on your list.
Jason Rothenberg knew how we wanted his acclaimed, post-apocalyptic science fiction drama, The 100 , to end even before it began. Premiered on the CW network in March 2014, The 100 follows a group of 12 people that are the sole survivors of a nuclear Armageddon on Earth.
The network announced the series's seventh season would be its last, and the final episode would air in summer of 2020. Staying true to the series, Rothenberg made sure the show's final episode is its hundredth, and he said it would leave audiences with "the true moral of the story". You've got to love the commitment.
