One of the greatest black filmmakers’ – Spike Lee – television series, “She Gotta Have It” has been cancelled by Netflix after two seasons.
The show which is based on a 1986 movie with the same title directed by Lee has been taken off by Netflix after running for two seasons.
The second season of the show was premiered on Netflix on 24th May, 2019. It starred popular actors like DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, Anthony Ramos as Mars Blackmon, Lyriq Bent as Jamie Overstreet, Cleo Anthony as Greer Childs, Margot Bingham as Clorinda “Clo” Bradford, Chyna Layne as Shemekka Epps, and De’Adre Aziza as Raqueletta Moss.
According to Netflix the two previous seasons will still be aired on the streaming platform, just that the subsequent ones will not get that luxury.
“While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come.” Netflix said.
However, Netflix will still be working with Lee as he is set to release his new film on the platform, dubbed ‘Da 5 Bloods.’
Also, Netflix gave a reason for cancelling the show.
“Our missed forecast was across all regions, but slightly more so in regions with price increases.”
The company pointed to the show’s “content” as one of the reasons for the decline.
“Rather, we think Q2’s content slate drove less growth in paid net adds than we anticipated.“
To explain further, it was reported that Netflix lost 130,000 subscribers in the U. S during Q2 (second quarter of the year).
Shelton Jackson “Spike” Lee is an American film director, producer, writer, and actor. His production company, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, has produced over 35 films since 1983. He is known for his association with Denzel Washington and popular for directing movies like Malcom X and Inside Man.
