Netflix boss justifies ‘cancelled shows’, fans unconvinced

Netflix top brass Ted Sarandos and Greg Peters have defended their decision to cancel fan-favorite shows.

During an interview with BloombergSarandos maintained that the streamer had “never canceled a successful broadcast”.

“A lot of these shows were well-intentioned but aimed at a very small audience with a very big budget.

The key is that you need to be able to speak to a small audience on a small budget and a large audience on a big budget. If you do it right, you can do it forever. »

The CEO hit South Korea squid game success as an example.

“It’s very rare for a show like Korea’s Squid Game to be as global as it used to be,” he said.

“Within 30 hours, the world was watching Squid Game without human intervention to try to market Squid Game to the world.”

“We’re just starting to make Squid Game not an unusual thing, but basically something that happens literally every week,” Peters added.

Meanwhile, viewers are angered by recently canceled shows, including the fantasy drama warrior nunthe animated sitcom interior work, the German science fiction period 1899and the horror series Resident Evil.

Fans took to Twitter to react to the streamer boss’ latest statement.

One user wrote, “Scary to think that Netflix would have permanently canceled Breaking Bad after 2 seasons. Wonder how many potential shows we’ve lost.”

Another commented, “Netflix should be giving users who watch the first season of a show one month free and that one is cancelled.”

The third person expressed their frustration, saying, “I don’t even want to watch a show on Netflix unless it has 3 seasons already.

I only had 2 episodes in Resident Evil before it was cancelled.

I don’t see the point of ending it now because I just know it’s going to end on a sequel bait cliffhanger with no conclusion forever. »
