Every original Netflix show canceled so far in 2021

All Netflix Originals Canceled In 2021

Netflix cancellations are always difficult to cover and in 2021 there have been quite a few. Below, we’ll walk you through all of Netflix Original’s major cancellations, including recent cancellations. Zero, Zero Cold, dash & lily and the Israeli series, Hit and run.

If you want to see all the big cancellations through 2021, we have a cancellations bible that chronicles the majority of Netflix cancellations between 2013 and 2020.

One important distinction we’ll make below is when shows are canceled and left hanging and others that are renewed for final seasons that allow them to have endings of some description. While you may quibble that the result is the same, we’ll still categorize them separately.

We also have to take into account the ghost cancellations of Netflix. We’ve documented them in the past where the series simply falls off the radar with no announcements as to its future. Shows in this category include Damn season 2, Letter to the king season 2, Innocents season 2 and countless others.
