All things must come to an end. Netflix greenlights plenty of shows, but not all of them last. The streaming service is ruthless about axing shows that don’t perform according to expectations. So far in 2022, Netflix has canceled a cooking show starring Paris Hilton, an adaptation of a popular series of children’s novels, and a comedy series with a major star.
Here’s the full list of shows Netflix has canceled this year.
In early January, Netflix announced it had canceled Gentefied after two seasons. The half-hour comedy-drama was produced by America Ferrera and focused on three Mexican-American cousins living in L.A.’s Boyle Heights neighborhood. Deadline noted that the show’s second season, which premiered in November 2021, never made it into the Netflix top 10.
“So sad that our beloved [Gentefied] has reached its end,” Ferrera wrote on Instagram after the cancellation was announced. “I have nothing but immense pride for this gorgeous show and the incredibly talented humans who came together to put something new and deeply authentic on our screens.”

Socialite Paris Hilton showed off her cooking skills in Cooking With Paris, a six-episode reality series that dropped in August 2021. It saw Hilton try out a range of recipes with guests such as Kim Kardashian and Demi Lovato by her side. But viewers turned up their noses at the show, which barely cracked the streaming service’s top 10, according to Deadline. Netflix canceled Cooking With Paris in January 2022.
Sci-fi drama Another Life lasted two seasons before Netflix canceled it in February 2022. Star Katee Sackhoff broke the news to fans on Twitter.
“I’d like to thank everyone single person who watched & supported Another Life on @netflix,” she wrote. “To our crew & cast thank you for always working so hard & being prepared. I wish we could do more seasons but sadly it’s just not in the cards.”

Tween-focused comedy-drama The Baby-Sitters Club earned rave reviews from critics, but that wasn’t enough to save it from cancellation. In early March, Netflix revealed that there would be no season 3 for the show, which is based on a popular book series by Ann M. Martin. Creator Rachel Shukert was baffled by the cancellation.
“Our numbers seemed fine. It was what they expected. It was pretty close to what we did last season, so I wasn’t too worried,” she told Vulture. “At Netflix, it’s more about if your show works on the platform than if the platform is working for your show,” she went on to say. “They want people to watch it a certain way, and they want shows that people will watch that way — not shows that people want to watch in their own way.”
