Do we feel Netflix cancels series before they have actually started to fail?

I’m curious to see people’s opinions on this as I feel many series recently have been cancelled whilst they are still succeeding. Furthermore, shows have been cancelled with no real reason, for example, One Day at a Time was not an expensive series to film, it was popular and including really important issues that most tv series are not currently mentioning.

  • I can't quite remember where I heard it, but on a podcast I was listening to I heard a pair of critics say that Netflix focuses on getting new subscribers rather than ratings like normal tv stations pay attention to. And because they'll get more subscribers from creating a new interesting show that people have to see, they focus more on making new content than adding to their own content. – jefishere 3 years ago
