Netflix Shows Cancelled: Which Ones Got the Axe?

Our favorite shows keep disappearing before they have a chance to shine! Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon. Keep reading to discover the latest cancellations and see the entire list of cancelled Netflix shows since all the way back in 2014. Don’t fret, we’ll also teach you tips and tricks to get more out of your Netflix subscription.

After the streaming giant has cancelled show after show, hiked its prices, and now plans to put ads in some subscription plans, you might be considering ditching Netflix. Before you go, a VPN can help you access Netflix shows when you travel abroad or use restricted networks, so your investment may still be worth it. That’s up to you though, we’ll just tell you how it all works. 

A VPN server disguises your IP address with one from its network. You can choose a server in a different country to make it look like you’re actually there. That means you can easily keep accessing the Netlix library you want and continue watching your shows. 

CyberGhost VPN has streaming-optimized servers for all major Netflix libraries, so you’ll always have lightning-fast connection speeds to watch all the shows you want – even in UHD. 

What Are Netflix Originals

House of Cards in 2013 was the first Netflix original series, soon followed by Orange is the New Black. Both became overnight sensations. At the time, releasing an entire season at once was a novel idea. Part of Netflix’s appeal was these high-quality “Netflix Originals” that would be too risky to broadcast on mainstream TV. 

Netflix Originals were great for both viewers and the company, because they enabled the production of a massive number of new shows worldwide, like Squid Game from South Korea and Money Heist from Spain. Netflix changed the TV and film industry when they transitioned from streaming provider to streaming provider + production company. Nowadays it’s commonplace to see streaming channels creating their own original shows, and viewers have gotten used to a lot more innovation with a lot less inhibition.

Some Netflix Originals like Bridgerton, The Witcher, and You are still going strong. Still, many of our favorites are on their way out, like The Crown, Stranger Things, and Grace and Frankie. The number of shows getting cancelled has been multiplying since 2019, but Netflix is still renewing many more shows than it’s cancelling. 

Netflix Shows Cancelled So Far

Once upon a time, Netflix was even rebooting shows networks had cancelled, like Arrested Development. Now it seems like Netflix presses the cancel button just after you’ve found your new favorite show! We all know this isn’t the first time it’s happened, either. 

Here’s the list of every Netflix show cancelled so far, with its genre, season/episode count, and IMDb rating. We’re not even counting shows cancelled before they got made or were aired – you don’t have all day!

How Many Shows Did Netflix Renew?

Netflix cancellations dominate the headlines, but it’s not all bad news. Netflix has actually renewed 63 shows for 2022 including hits like Black Mirror, Squid Game, and Sex Education. That’s way more than the number of shows it cancelled. Netflix animated series like Big Mouth and Paradise PD are also returning for a new season! 

Should I Get a VPN for Streaming?

Yes! Have you ever been in a situation where you couldn’t access the Netflix shows you wanted to watch? Maybe you were traveling or using a restricted network like at school? A VPN overcomes these challenges by sending your connection through an encrypted tunnel to a secure server in the country of your choice. That way, you can keep watching Netflix wherever you are.

Here are a few more ways CyberGhost VPN can enhance your streaming experience. 

Use It on Multiple Devices

Love to stream at home as well as while on planes, trains, and automobiles (as long as you’re not driving)? We’ve got you covered. CyberGhost VPN has apps for any device, from PCs to smartphones, to Smart TVs and beyond. 

Each subscription supports up to 7 devices at a time, so your entire household can benefit! If you need any help connecting, our Customer Support team is ready to help 24/7. 

Benefit from a Worldwide Server Network

CyberGhost VPN has servers in 90+ countries, so you can safely access Netflix with our streaming optimized servers regardless of where you are. These servers give you the best connections for high-quality streams every time you connect.

Just connect to a CyberGhost server in the country of your choice before watching to safely access Netflix. Don’t worry, changing countries won’t change your menu or video language settings. We think you’ll love using Cyberghost VPN, so we’re giving you a 45-day money-back guarantee

Watch with the Fastest Connection

Worried a VPN will slow down your connection? CyberGhost uses the latest VPN protocols to connect you to our servers with lightning-fast speeds. We use the advanced WireGuard® protocol as standard to make sure any lag is unnoticeable

As a bonus, our streaming-optimized servers ensure you can always access the top streaming channels with the best video quality out there. 

Bypass Content-Based Throttling

Is your ISP crashing your binge-watching party? Some ISPs use deep packet inspection (DPI) technology to look at what kind of data you send to your computer. DPI helps ISPs throttle your connection when you’re streaming or doing other data-heavy activities. 

CyberGhost VPN uses end-to-end encryption, which makes DPI impossible. If your ISP can’t spy on what you’re doing online, content-based throttling becomes impossible too. The party is back on!

Good Alternatives to Netflix

Do you draw the line at ads on a paid service, or simply paying more per month? You’re not alone, as over 200,000 people have opted out of Netflix since the beginning of the year, forcing the company to look at other money-making avenues like gaming. 

No worries, you’ve got options! It seems like every studio has come out with its own streaming platform, but they’re not all created equal.
