In the world of television, may it be network or streaming, cancellations are inevitable. Some younger shows manage to achieve success in a very short period of time ("Stranger Things," "This is Us") while others struggle to get to a sophomore or third season ("Sense8"). One of the newest victims of Netflix's cancel button is Sophia Amoruso's "Girlboss," a comedy created by "Pitch Perfect" writer Kay Cannon based on Amoruso's autobiography.

It starred Britt Robertson as Amoruso, Ellie Reed as Annie, Johnny Simmons as Shane, and Alphonso McAuley as Dax. It premiered on April 21 on Netflix, and earned a 32% Rotten Tomatoes rating. The review read that the series "has its charms, but they're ultimately undone by a fundamental mishandling of the show's problematic protagonist."

Netflix cancels 'Girlboss'

Deadline reported that Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos spoke out about the cancellations of the streaming service, explaining that "A big expensive show for a huge audience is great.

A big, expensive show for a tiny audience is hard even in our model to make that work very long." While he wasn't talking about "Girlboss" or any show in particular, he was merely explaining the truth behind the television business, whether it was network or streaming. The cancellation of "Girlboss" comes after the shocking cancellation of "Sense8" from Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski, as well as "The Get Down" from Baz Luhrmann and Stephen Adly Guirgis.

Sophia Amoruso comments on Netflix's 'Girlboss' cancellation

Sophia Amoruso, upon which "Girlboss" is loosely based, has taken to Instagram to talk about Netflix's cancellation. As per Variety, she wrote that she remains "proud" of the production and is "looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out." This may imply that she's taking the show to other networks or distribution platforms, but as of now, it's unclear where the show is headed.

Amoruso admitted that she was "privileged to work with incredible talent," but also commented on how "living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months." Amoruso claimed that in the Netflix series, she was portrayed as "a dick," which may be far from who she truly is. She also wrote that "It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years" and not be stereotyped based on a 13-episode Netflix comedy series.

"Girlboss" is currently on Netflix and will not see a sophomore season.
