The 6 series canceled by Netflix that we miss the most

How many times have we reached a series for which we had no references from anyone, we have seen it, we have enjoyed it, we have recommended it to friends so that, suddenly, we find out that the platform that produced it has decided to cancel it. But… if it was great, what happened?

The streaming war, where four major companies are fighting for the throne of subscriptions, has a very positive side: More projects greenlit than ever. Movies and series that would never have had a chance on traditional television get the budget and money to come true.

For this reason, in recent years we have seen new stories, new situations and scripts that have surprised us with their freshness and daring. When there is a lot of money to create audiovisual works, the viewers are the first to win.

Netflix has a series of tricks that few people know, such as its codes to find content. In this report we have compiled all the secret codes of the platform.

But just as they come, they go. The series have become the easiest pawns to sacrifice when it comes to changing strategy, cutting budget or changing approach. No matter how successful a series is, if something doesn’t fit in the offices on duty, it doesn’t take long to disappear.

And if any of the big companies has a reputation for being worse than the Grim Reaper herself, that’s Netflix. The American streaming giant is the platform that launches the most series per year, but also the one that stars in the most cancellations. It is one of lime and another of sand. Today we talk about the ones we miss the most.

The series worked for several reasons. First, because it was difficult to define the style of the series. In essence it belongs to the aforementioned genre of found footage, but it has phases of thriller, drama and criminal investigation.

And second, because the plot of Archive 81 is based on a podcast of the same name, Archive 81, created by Marc Sollinger and Daniel Powell, who are also co-producers on the series. That is why it is such a unique and well-run production. On Netflix it didn’t get past the first season.
