"Shadow and Bone"
One week after the conclusion of the actors’ strike, Netflix announced the cancelation of five shows, including “Shadow and Bone,” a fantasy drama which had once ranked in the streamer’s most-watched list.
While the first season of the fantasy series, adapted from Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels, performed well for the streaming platform – even spawning a video game spin-off – the second season of the show struggled to break through in a major way, which is believed to have led to Netflix’s decision considering the show’s large budget.
The other titles that will no longer return include animated shows “Agent Elvis” and “Captain Fall,” as well as comedy drama “Glamorous” and sci-fi comedy “Farzar.” These series had all only run for one season. Moreover, a planned spin-off based on “Six of Crows” has also been scrapped.
Although the strikes of Hollywood writers and actors have officially ended, the effect of this work stoppage is still being felt. In fact, more major studios are expected to make decisions similar to that of Netflix in the coming weeks, mainly due to high production costs.
