Netflix has been on a canceling spree for the past two years, axing fan-favorite series like Marvel TV’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. This year, the streaming site went on to cancel some of its other shows, including the science-fiction drama series, The OA.
The cancellation sparked some major backlash from the series fans, especially after word came out that Netflix had no intention of funding a feature film to help tie The OA’s story. Now, The OA fans are protesting the cancellation, taking to social media to strike back to convince others to #cancelnetflix the same way the streaming company canceled their favorite show.
Quite a number of Twitter users have been going on supporting the #cancelnetflix movement, however, it seems like the streaming giant remains unfazed over the protests going on online. Sure, Netflix might have had some trouble this year with a major loss in subscribers during the third quarter of 2019, however, recent reports reveal that the streaming company’s stocks are bouncing back again thanks to shows like Stranger Things.
Of course, Netflix might eventually be affected by protests like these. We’re hoping the streaming site decides to keep its well-loved series – it would be heartbreaking if the company decided to ax Stranger Things before the show got to finish its full narrative. The streaming site has to keep its competitive power, especially when Disney is going to become a major rival with its upcoming streaming site, Disney+. Let’s hope that Netflix learns from all of this.
