Based on Colleen Ballinger’s YouTube videos, Haters Back Off! starred Ballinger as the hopelessly deluded Miranda Sings, a young performer with no discernible talent who nonetheless dreams of superstardom. The Office alum Angela Kinsey co-starred as Miranda’s mother Bethany, with Eastbound & Down‘s Steve Little playing Miranda’s uncle Jim. Comedian Matt Besser (Fresh Off the Boat, Parks and Recreation) joined the cast in Season 2 as Miranda’s estranged dad.
Ballinger seemingly confirmed the news on Friday with an emoji-only tweet:
Haters Back Off! debuted in October 2016, with a second season debuting last month on Netflix. Today’s cancellation caps the show’s two-season run at a total of 16 episodes.
Two other Netflix series did receive some good news from the streaming service this week, though: Stranger Things was renewed earlier today for a third season, and the crime drama Mindhunter earned a second season on Thursday.
