Netflix has done some house cleaning in 2017, cutting expensive shows like "The Get Down," and old favorites like "House of Cards."
It's also killed flops like "Girlboss" and "Gypsy" after only one season.
Most recently, Netflix announced that the third season of the comedy series "Love" — starring Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust, from co-creator Judd Apatow — will be its last.
Netflix historically has canceled very few shows — only about 14. And eight of those were canceled this year. Some shows have been canceled abruptly without a chance for a final season and conclusion. But others including "Love," "House of Cards," and "Bloodline" got warning and were able to wrap things up.
If Netflix CEO Reed Hastings gets his way, expect even more shows to get canceled in the future.
"We've canceled very few shows," Hastings said earlier this year. "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 shows Netflix has killed, along with their critic and audience ratings from Metacritic.
