Netflix decided to put a stop on yet another young project. This time it is about a feminist TV show, Girboss. The show focuses on the challenges of a woman who has to be her own boss in both her professional and personal time. The show has a boost of appeal as it had a grain of truth in it. The story was based on a real-life event in the life of Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal startup. However, there will be no season two for this production.
Sophia Amoruso Announced the News Herself
It was Sophia Amoruso herself who delivered the news on her Instagram account on Saturday. She posted a lengthier statement that talked the difficulties of being the inspiration for a comedy show. She alluded to many messages she received from viewers. Their main inquiry was how much the show was real and how much of it was fiction.
While Amoruso boasted over the result of the efforts put in this green project, she admitted that two months of fame were more than she could handle. Her main concern was that people looked only at the shallow layer of the story and didn’t seek to understand the protagonist more in-depth.
“…living my life as a caricature was hard to even if only for two months.”
Netflix Didn’t Consider a Season Two for Financial Reasons
Actress Britt Robertson took the challenge to portray the main character in New York Times best-selling book, Girlboss. Kay Cannon, the screenwriter of “Pitch Perfect,” acted as the executive producer and showrunner of this comedy.
Netflix saw the cancellation of this series as a natural decision like with many other show cuts. The explanation is in the numbers. The production was extremely expensive while the audience couldn’t live up to expectations. Therefore, a season two for the series wouldn’t have made up for additional expenses. Even for this behemoth in online streaming, this unbalance can’t be supported for the thrill of a limited group of fans.
