Sad to say, Netflix has canceled the fantasy series Shadow and Bone after two seasons on the streaming channel. But that’s not all, as Glamorous is also cut after one season, as well as three freshman animated series, Farzar, Captain Fall and Agent Elvis. What led to these series cancelations?

Shadow and Bone canceled on Netflix

The Netflix series Shadow and Bone told the story of an orphan named Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li). After discovering she possesses the rare Grisha power to summon sunlight, she embarks on a journey to bring down the Shadow Fold. This is a dangerous strip of land which is engulfed in darkness, where the villainous Kirigan (Ben Barnes) AKA the Darkling, conspired against her.

In season 2, Alina and Mal (Archie Renaux) are on the run, while the seemingly defeated Darkling emerges from the Fold accompanied by a new army of indestructible shadow monsters, dubbed nichevo’ya, along with fearsome new Grisha recruits.

Leigh Bardugo, the author of Shadow and Bone was “heartbroken and deeply disappointed” by the cancelation after season 2, and also the Six of Crows spinoff. In an Instagram post, she wrote that she was also trying to hold on to her “very real gratitude.” Bardugo added:

Most authors never get to see their work adapted. Many who do end up regretting the experience. I’m one of the very few who can look at an adaptation with pride and tremendous joy.
