Netflix releases dozens of new shows every month and, for the most part, provides either swift renewals (or cancelations). Still, a growing list of shows has yet to receive official confirmations of their future. Here’s the list of Netflix shows that have yet to be renewed as of December 2022.
This is part of a list of three articles ongoing for 2022, whereby we track all the renewals at Netflix and all the cancelations at Netflix. In the latter article, you’ll also see a list of shows we believe are at risk of cancelation.
Another rule below is that we won’t list titles over three years old and are still waiting for renewals. In those instances, we’re presuming the show is dead. Titles that fall under this banner include the likes of The Innocents and Tidelands.
This list will be updated over time, and to begin with, we’ll keep the list limited to English language titles. We’ll also exclude kids’ animation as we rarely, if ever, get confirmations from Netflix regarding their futures until years later or days/weeks before a new season launches.
