Tech: The 8 shows Netflix has canceled, including the Naomi Watts series 'Gypsy'

null

Netflix has canceled eight shows, not including 'Bloodline,' which concluded after season three. Here are a few: 'Gypsy,' 'Sense8,' 'Girlboss,' 'The Get Down.'

Netflix has done some housecleaning in the last few months, cutting two high-profile shows, "Sense8" and "The Get Down."

It also canceled "Girlboss" and "Gypsy" after only one season.

"Gypsy," which starred Oscar nominee Naomi Watts is the most recent cancellation. Netflix canceled it on Friday.

Netflix historically has canceled very few shows — only about eight (or up to 10, depending on how you count). But if CEO Reed Hastings gets his way, expect more in the future.

"We've canceled very few shows," Hastings said at the Code Conference in May. "I'm always pushing the content team. We have to take more risk. You have to try more crazy things. Because we should have a higher cancel rate overall."

Here are the eight shows Netflix has killed, along with their critic and audience ratings from Metacritic.
