This month, the Netflix subscribers found out that ‘Away,’ ‘GLOW‘, and ‘Teenage Bounty Hunters‘ had all been canceled. They joined a growing list of favorite Netflix shows that never made it past 3 seasons including ‘The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance,’ ‘Tuca & Bertie,’ ‘The Punisher,’ ‘Altered Carbon,’ ‘Sense8,’ ‘Jessica Jones,’ ‘The OA,’ ‘Santa Clarita Diet,’ and ‘Messiah.’
The official word on ‘GLOW’s cancellation was that COVID-19 was to blame – with Netflix saying the virus “makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging.” But we all know that the company’s business plan on the original series is about how they cost and how much they can make money out of them. If we want to look from a different perspective, they have more original series than any other streaming service and that means more canceled shows. But canceling people’s favorite shows are not a strategy that can earn you more subscribers.
Soon people will realize that they want to switch their streaming service for longer-running shows. Netflix needs to start pushing quality over quantity if they want to win the streaming war and keep the audience on their side.
As known, started in 1997 by two Silicon Valley geeks with a mail-out DVD rental idea, Netflix company grew up quickly until it was able to make enough money to finance its own shows. When the company started airing the original series, it made a really good name for itself. People quickly started to fall for it and the service reached millions of subscribers worldwide.
