Canceled Netflix Shows 2024

Pictures via Netflix and Nickelodeon

It’s time to spool up this year’s article covering all the Netflix shows that have been canceled. This list covers all the shows that were cut short, and unlike most outlets, we won’t be including shows ending with their upcoming season.

2023 was a big year for cancelations on Netflix, with some big shows facing the chop. According to our estimates of all shows that premiered in 2023 that could get additional seasons, around a third of titles were renewed, a third are still pending, and a third were canceled.

As a recap, here are some of the shows that won’t be coming back that were announced last year:

  • In From the Cold
  • K-Drama cancellations: A Time Called You, Celebrity, The Days, First Love, Glitch, Mask Girl, The Sound of Magic
  • Invisible City
  • Shadow and Bone
  • Agent Elvis
  • Captain Fall
  • Farzar
  • Glamorous
  • Wellmania
  • Losers
  • Hard Cell
  • Snowflake Mountain
  • Welcome to Eden
  • Sky High: The Series
  • In Love All Over Again
  • Lockwood & Co.

As mentioned, many shows will end in 2024 or 2025. That includes Stranger Things, The Umbrella Academy, Sweet Tooth, and plenty of others. We don’t consider them cancellations because they’re concluding with planned endings.

Note: Cancelations are listed in order of cancelation (newest to oldest).


That Girl Lay Lay

Much like Erin & Aaron, That Girls Lay Lay was one of two major Nickelodeon live-action kids shows that Netflix had a vested interest in. It carried the title globally and everywhere outside of the US carried it as a Netflix Original title.

However, like Erin & Aaron, the writing was on the wall for this title in late 2023 when filming did not restart on a supersized second season and members of the cast confirmed in March 2024 that the show would not be returning for any third season.


The Brothers Sun

An ambitious new action series debuted in early 2024 but ultimately is one of the first major casualties of the 2024 slate getting canceled around a month following its debut.

Why was The Brothers Sun canceled so early? Viewership was the reason, although Michelle Yeoh wasn’t looped in on discussions regarding its performance. As we’ve documented, season 1 had a pretty lackluster debut, and despite growing in viewing hours in week 2, viewership quickly faded away.

 


Ratched

Ratched Among Shows Likely Canceled At Netflix

Netflix picked up the Ryan Murphy-created series Ratched for two seasons, and the first season made waves when it dropped in 2020. Despite that, however, Sarah Paulson confirmed in early February 2024 that the show wouldn’t be coming back.

The implication from this is also that The Politician, which did get its second season on Netflix, has also been quietly canceled and won’t be returning for a season 3.


Erin & Aaron

This cancelation falls more on Nickelodeon’s shoulders than Netflix’s but the streamer does serve as the international distributor for the title so we’re going to include it.

The shortlived musical live-action Nickelodeon kids series is part of a shrinking library of titles as many distributors ditch the genre. In early February, the show’s main male star, Jensen Gering, confirmed the title would not be returning in a heartfelt message.

Undoubtedly, the biggest cancelation of 2024 thus far has been Obliterated. Although the show could’ve easily passed itself off as a limited series, that wasn’t the case here, with plans for more. However, after relatively disappointing viewership, the show was announced to be canceled on February 1st.


Shows We Discovered To Have Been Canceled From Previous Years

In addition to the shows above, we’ve also found information about some other older Netflix shows that have been quietly canceled behind the scenes.

These cancelations include:

  • Black Summer – The fantastic zombie drama series from The Asylum looks to have been quietly axed and won’t be returning for a season 3, with one of the people behind the show telling fans that it won’t be returning.
  • Connected – The science docuseries won’t be returning for a second season as confirmed by the show’s host multiple times over the past year.
  • Oddballs – Like many Netflix Original animation series, Oddballs was given an upfront order, and now that those episode counts have been fulfilled, the show won’t be returning. One of the people behind the show announced the cancelation in a livestream last year.
  • Tribes of Europa – Another show we got closure on via the creators on Twitter was the German sci-fi series Tribes of Europa, which will not be returning for a season 2.
