Netflix is being Netflix and cancelled a bunch of shows that its subscribers liked. This time though, people appear to be voting with their wallets and calling for the cancellation of their subscriptions to show how unhappy the customers are with the company's choices.
The latest lot to be booted out from Netflix's roster are Resident Evil, The Midnight Club, Half Bad: The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself, Fate: The Winx Saga and now Warrior Nun. As Ewan has astutely pointed out before, even if these shows weren't almost universally adored, some do take time to gain ground and a subsequent season could have offered them the opportunity to find larger audiences.
And, it's likely that The Witcher: Blood Origin will face the same fate as these aforementioned shows, meeting with a milquetoast reception and already suffering a two episode loss before the show even hit the streaming service.
Check out the trailer for the second season of Warrior Nun here - I know, the name is a bit silly but you will like what you see:
Oddly enough, our experts tell us that Netflix is operating like a business and not like a democratic arena in which to champion the shows you like the most. We're as shocked as you are. According to Deadline, Warrior Nun's second season only sat in the top 10 shows for three weeks after its premiere and within that window, it peaked at fifth position. Simply not successful enough, I'm afraid. That being said, I'm more afraid of the wrath of Warrior Nun fans petitioning for people to cancel their Netflix subscriptions:
Con un 99% de puntuación de la audiencia y llegando al top 10 de las series más vistas, Netflix decide cancelar otro show justo después de que los dos personajes sáficos se hicieran canon #SaveWarriorNun #CancelNetflix nada más que añadir pic.twitter.com/16U8C0a2gH— Claus 🏳️🌈 | Puta Netflix (@SylHudson) December 13, 2022
Good morning, except to the people who decided to cancel Warrior Nun yesterday. I'm still holding onto hope for a Season Three! We can do this. #SaveWarriorNun #RenewWarriorNunS3 #cancelnetflix pic.twitter.com/1YzC1snxgy— Jarod Roach (@Savantir07) December 14, 2022
Right. At this point, I'm not sure what to say. Even if Princess Diana rose to rate Warrior Nun five stars on Netflix, it'll probably be cancelled anyway because it didn't meet the streaming service's own metrics. The smart thing to do would be to just enjoy what's on the platform for the time that it's there and not get our hopes up. What a message to send over the most wonderful time of the year.
