Thanks to the rise of streaming platforms, there is always a new series to enjoy. Although many of these productions are of good quality and manage to build a loyal community around them, sometimes they simply fail to sustain healthy audience levels. Along these lines, the head of Netflix revealed that they never canceled a successful show.
Indeed, the streaming giant has upset the community in recent months by taking many productions to the chopping block. Among the most outstanding we find 1889, a mystery series that, despite achieving very healthy audience levels, was canceled in its first season.
Why is Netflix canceling a series? Simple: not successful
The end of this show raised many eyebrows and made the community ask what are the factors that Netflix considers to cancel a production that received praise from the public.
In a recent conversation with the Bloomberg portal (via GameSpot), Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos spoke about this issue and consequently responded to criticism from fans. Thus, he assured that they never take a show that meets the expected audience levels to the guillotine.

“We have never canceled a successful series. Many of these shows were well-intentioned, but they were targeting a very small audience with a very large budget. The key is that they have to be able to speak to a small audience on a small budget, and to a large audience on a large budget. If they do it right, they can do it forever,” said Ted Sarandos.
The executive refrained from revealing more details in this regard, so we do not know what are the parameters that Netflix considers to determine which shows meet expectations at audience levels. It is possible that the cost of production plays a very important role in this regard.
