Netflix cancels 'Designated Survivor', 'Tuca & Bertie' leaving many fans heartbroken and demanding renewal of the shows
The announcements come as a major shock for many fans since Netflix was the one that saved 'Designated Survivor' and picked it up for a third season last September after its cancellation by ABC
Netflix has decided to oust DC drama series 'Designated Survivor' starring Kiefer Sutherland and the adult animated comedy series 'Tuca & Bertie' headlined by Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong. The announcements come as a major shock for many fans since Netflix was the one that saved 'Designated Survivor' and picked it up for a third season last September after its cancellation by ABC. Following the news, there was a lot of buzz on Twitter as fans have shared their thoughts on their favorite shows being canceled from the streaming service.
"Hello @NetflixUK, Just wondering why my most recent binge watch, #DesignatedSurvivor, has suddenly decided to, at the start of season 3, get rid of the brilliant Lyor as well as introduce SO much extra, unneeded swearing?" one fan wrote on Twitter, while another tweeted: "@netflix wyd? All the nonsense you show and you cancel #DesignatedSurvivor I hope Jack Bauer comes for you. @RealKiefer I'm cancelling my friends account that I use."
Yet another fan put out a tweet saying, "Netflix has canceled #DesignatedSurvivor, ending the series on a dark cliffhanger (in more ways than one). I'll admit it was an odd marriage between the show and Netflix, but I figured Netflix would give the series more than one season after saving it." One fan wrote, "Netflix did it again. They cancelled another great show. designated survivor was a big hit. I hate when they do this!! Looks like I might have to cancel my Netflix account."
The news of 'Tuca & Bertie' being cancelled on Netflix broke many hearts too. "What can I use to fill the Tuca & Bertie-shaped hole in my heart?" a fan tweeted. "Netflix how you gonna make absolute shite like Swiped (the worst film I have ever seen) and cancel the hilarious, weird, and wonderful Tuca & Bertie?! Are you actually okay hun?" an outraged fan wrote, while another tweeted: "Tuca & Bertie made me laugh and cry so much during a sad time in my life. I can’t believe Netflix is cancelling it to make more Noah Centineo movies."
"Wow, I'm legit really pissed by this news. Tuca & Bertie has easily been one of the best things I watched all year. We sing I'm Losing My Shit as regularly as we do Steven Universe songs at my house (an alarmingly high frequency)" some fans wrote while another tweeted: "Ugh can't believe Netflix is canceling Tuca & Bertie. I've never enjoyed an animated series more-both for the stories and the visuals. Was looking forward to seeing where it went next..."
With cancellation decisions totally dependent on the examining cost vs viewership, it seems difficult for the streaming service to churn out too many shows along with the massive volume of originals in the pipeline. Even with the two new cancelations, Netflix has a renewal rate of season one and season two at around 80 percent.
