“Disjointed” is a workplace comedy starring Kathy Bates as a lifelong advocate for legalization who’s finally living her dream as the owner of an L.A.–area cannabis dispensary.

After its 20-episode first season, its future went up in smoke after Netflix decided not to renew it.
Series is based on what Maria Bamford has accepted to be “her life.” The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods inspired by the actor/comedian’s life, tell the story of a woman who loses- and then finds- her s**t.
Netflix opted not to renew the series a couple months after its second season premiered.
Based on the character created by Colleen Ballinger, “Haters Back Off” delves into the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous, it’s just no one knows it yet.
While the series had a strong enough start when it debuted, earning a second season, Ballinger’s YouTube following did not translate to Netflix viewership. It’s yet another victim of Netflix’s relatively recent trend of actually cleaning house and ending underperforming series, whereas in the past most shows were renewed regardless of audience.
The ever-candid comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler enjoyed two seasons of her show “Chelsea” on Netflix. Her second season features unfiltered, revealing conversations with Hollywood’s A-list, world leaders, and notable guests from all walks of life. Viewers are invited to travel the world with the fearless host, grab a seat at the table for her intimate dinner parties, and be entertained by comedy bits and Chelsea’s off-the-cuff humor.
The cancellation doesn’t come as a huge surprise. “Chelsea” struggled in its second season and even got downgraded from nightly to weekly. In the crowded late-night TV landscape, viewers just didn’t watch.
Handler released the following statement on social media:
“Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me. From the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation.
“For these reasons, I’ve decided not to return for another season of ‘Chelsea’, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus on projects that have significance to me. My goal is to be better informed, raise my voice, and participate in a more meaningful way. I want to travel the country and visit areas and people I don’t know enough about, speak at colleges and listen to students, and gain a better understanding of our political divide. I have joined forces with EMILY’s List to elect more women to public office, register people to vote, and campaign for candidates who are fighting for women’s rights. I’m excited to share that I will continue my partnership with Netflix, working together on a documentary where I’ll engage with people I don’t talk with enough – people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies. Netflix could not be more understanding, and I’m grateful for their continued support. New episodes of ‘Chelsea’ will continue to stream weekly until the end of this year.”
