However, Shadow and Bone also topped the charts at the time.
Now that the Hollywood strikes are over, channels and streaming services are having to make decisions about their ongoing series, and it is expected that many productions will be cut due to rising costs.
Netflix has already stepped in and canceled five series, one of which topped the charts at the time and had a passionate fanbase who campaigned for a season renewal – that being Shadow and Bone.
Sometimes it's very difficult to see what the actors of Shadow and Bone, which was filmed here and was a hit, are doing, or why.
Our review of the first season
While the first season of the fantasy series based on Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse novels was a hit on Netflix — it even spawned a spin-off video game — the second season failed to break ground, which is perhaps what led to its decision given the series' large budget.
The animated series Elvis the Secret Agent and The Sacrificial Lamb will also not return, as will the series Shine If You Dare starring Kim Cattrall and the sci-fi comedy Farzar.
About the exclusion of Shadow and Bone, novels author Bardugo said he was “heartbroken and deeply disappointed.”
However, he also said he was “grateful” and said: “Most authors never see their works adapted. Many who do end up regretting the experience. I'm one of the few who can look back on the adaptation with great pride and joy.” “. “.
However, fans are disappointed and angry with the decision and are expressing it on social media.

Never, for any reason, fall in love with a Netflix TV series. They will kill him at the first opportunity.”
A user named LibertySpider added a poetic question: “Why make series if you're not going to finish them anyway?”
There was an example of Netflix canceling a popular series after two seasons, such as Sense8 and Altered Carbon. At the beginning of the year, the streaming service shocked viewers by not renewing 1899 for a second season, even though the German thriller featured prominently in the top 10 list.
Following the announcement, a fan started a petition on Change.org, but Netflix was unmoved by the initiative and did not renew the series.
