2020 has caused us to be locked up in our homes. With the entire world closed down, the entertainment and the tourism industries have been affected the worst. Popular streaming platform Netflix has cancelled a number of shows this year either due to stoppage of shooting and production as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown or due to drop in ratings. Here’s the list of the shows that are closed down during the pandemic.

  • Patriot Act- This was a popular talk show hosted by Hasan Minhaj which was a humorous take on the darkest current affairs. The show had a number of fans distributed over several sets of audiences and was called off after the 6th season after a number of alarms and outrages.
  • Altered Carbon- This action drama gained critical acclaim for the first season. This show was based in the distant future and covered a lot of timelines with poise. The show was cancelled due to poor cost to viewership ratio.
  • The Society- This is a modern teen drama about high school students who live in a town where all the adults have suddenly disappeared. The show was renewed for a second season but cancelled due to budget issues.
