The TV biz has the bah humbug blues.
A total of 17 series were laid to rest in December — and there’s still 10 days left in the month!
Not surprisingly, the body count was highest at HBO/HBO Max, which axed seven programs during the first two weeks of December, including Joss Whedon’s troubled The Nevers, anthology rom-com Love Life, ’70s sex satire Minx, voguing competition Legendary, dating romp FBoy Island, Issa Rae’s Sweet Life: Los Angeles and bilingual comedy Los Espookys.
Netflix shuttered four shows, including much-maligned workplace comedy Blockbuster, fantasy drama Warrior Nun, cult fave The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself and Mike Flanagan’s latest horror show The Midnight Club.
Shockingly, only one of December’s dozen-plus casualties hail from one of the five beleaguered broadcast networks (we’re looking at you Monarch). But, again, the month is young.
