The streaming service giant Netflix usually doesn’t have long-running TV shows, and not not more often, there have been some critically acclaimed shows that have been shockingly canceled by Netflix.
There have been a whole plethora of shows that fans frowned upon, some of them even upsetting the viewers, but the same shows got appreciation by critics like, ” Sucks!” and “Gypsy.” However, the ones that are canceled were critically acclaimed, too.
For those who don’t know, it’s quite often that Netflix stops seeing the value in shows that go above a total of 30 episodes (which is usually around two to three seasons of them). The actual reason behind this is because they go on and become way too difficult for the new viewers and more importantly, they are expensive.
