By Katie Louise Smith


On My Block, Money Heist and Dead To Me are all coming to an end in 2021.

While Netflix viewers will be looking forward to seeing the return of shows like You, Outer Banks, Never Have I Ever and Elite in 2021, we'll also be saying goodbye to a handful of big name titles too.

In 2020, Netflix cancelled a huge number of shows, including Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (which aired its final season on December 31st), The Society and I Am Not Okay With This (which had both been previously renewed).

Popular shows like Dear White People and On My Block aired their final seasons in 2021, after it was confirmed they would be ending back in 2020.

Here's all the shows Netflix cancelled in 2021, and the shows that will be ending in 2021

Here's every Netflix show cancelled or ending in 2021 (3)

Every Netflix show cancelled in 2021

1) On My Block

In January 2021, Netflix confirmed that On My Block had been renewed for a fourth and final season. The final 10 episodes dropped on the streamer in October 2021, wrapping up Monse, Cesar, Ruby, Jamal and Jasmine's story in an emotional way. But, all is not lost for On My Block fans... Netflix also confirmed that a spin-off series called Freeridge will be making its way to the platform very soon.

2) Special

The Ryan O'Connell comedy series ended after two seasons, with Netflix confirming the news in March 2021. The final season aired in May.


3) The Duchess

Netflix cancelled Katherine Ryan's comedy series after just one season in April 2021. The six-episode series premiered in September 2020 but will not return for season 2.

4) Castlevania

Netflix revealed in April 2021 that the anime series will be ending with its fourth season. Season 4 aired in May 2021.

5) The Last Kingdom

Netflix confirmed that the fifth season of the Saxon series will be its last. Season 5 is set to be released at some point toward the end of 2021.

6) The Irregulars

After just one season that debuted in March 2021, Netflix confirmed that the supernatural teenage Sherlock Holmes drama had been cancelled. The Irregulars, which was one of the most popular shows on the platform in its week of release, will not be returning for a second season.

7) Jupiter's Legacy

Less than one month after premiering on the streaming service, Netflix cancelled Jupiter's Legacy. According to Deadline, the franchise will remain alive via Supercrooks, a new super villain-themed series set in thesame universe.

8) Grand Army

After just one season, which dropped back in October 2020, Grand Army has been cancelled by Netflix. The show garnered relatively good reviews with critics praising the young cast members performances. However, it will not be back for a second season.

In July 2021, Bonding was one of four Netflix comedies that were cancelled. After two seasons and some considerable backlash from sex workers, the show will not be returning for a third season.

11) Country Comfort

The Katherine McPhee-led sitcom was cancelled after one season, following it's premiere in March 2021.

12) The Crew

After ending up with a 38% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the Kevin James NASCAR Sitcom was cancelled. The show premiered in February 2021.

13) Mr. Iglesias

Mr. Iglesias was cancelled after one season at Netflix and will not be returning for a second season.

14) Dash & Lily

The charming, festive rom-com series, fronted by Austin Abrams and Midori Francis, was cancelled after one season in October 2021. Fans were expecting to see at least one more season of the show, considering that it's based on a book series. Thankfully, the first season ended in a satisfying enough place for it to serve as a series finale.

15) Hit & Run

After dropping on the platform in August 2021, the thriller series will not be continuing with a second season. Despite favourable reviews, and a huge cliffhanger at the end of the first season, Netflix opted to cancel the show just a few weeks after its release.

16) Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me

The Jamie Foxx sitcom, inspired by his relationship with real life daughter Corinne, was cancelled after just one season at Netflix. The show was released in April 2021, with the cancellation confirmation arriving two months later in June.

17) #blackAF

Despite being renewed for a second season over a year ago, Kenya Barris' comedy series has now been cancelled by the streaming service. However, fans of the series need not worry because Deadline reports that there's talk to turn the series into a movie franchise instead. Watch this space.

18) Tiny Pretty Things

The dance drama series was quietly cancelled by Netflix a few months before actor Brennan Clost took to YouTube in November 2021 to let fans know that it would not be returning for a second season.

19) Zero Chill

In November 2021, Netflix cancelled the teen ice-skating/ice hockey series Zero Chill. The show originally aired in March 2021 with a 10-episode season.

20) Zero

While the show was one of the biggest Netflix productions to come out of Italy, Netflix cancelled the Italian superhero series in November 2021, just a few months after its release in April 2021.

21) Cowboy Bepop

Netflix's adaptation of Cowboy Bepop was cancelled less than one month after it premiered on the streaming service, likely due to a less than positive reception and low viewership numbers. The show currently holds a 45% critic rating and a 58% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

22) Julie and the Phantoms

Despite being incredibly popular with fans, Netflix cancelled the musical series in December 2021, well over a year since the first season aired. On Instagram, Kenny Ortega thanked fans for their support with a heartfelt message: “Although our hearts are saddened, we move on with such pride for what we accomplished as a team and the family we built while creating Julie. We hope you will continue to follow us as we move forward with our work and careers."
