Kim Cattrall's 'Glamorous' Among Netflix's Canceled Shows
Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 1 MIN.
The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes may be over, but more than a few of your favorite shows have become casualties lost to the dispute.
As reported by Deadline, Netflix announced that it will be canceling live-action shows "Shadow and Bone" and Kim Cattrall's LGBTQ-friendly "Glamorous" and adult-animated comedies "Agent Elvis," "Farzar" and "Captain Fall."
According to Deadline, the decision to cancel the shows was made as networks and streamers continue to evaluate how the seventh-month production shutdown has affected shows and schedules.
"While there had been a slew of series cancellations and un-renewals by linear networks and streamers during and immediately after the strikes, Netflix had largely refrained from making cancellation decisions during the past 6½ months," Deadline reports.
However, with the cancellations, the streaming giant has also announced a number of renewals, including "One Piece," "Ginny & Georgia;" "The Lincoln Lawyer," "XO," "Kitty," "Heartstopper," "The Night Agent," "The Diplomat," "Fubar," "Sweet Magnolias" and "Castlevania: Nocturne."
The cancellation of "Glamorous" is absolutely a blow to LGBTQ representation on television. The series, originally a pilot for the CW, debuted on Netflix in July. Created and executive produced by Jordan Nardino, with executive producers Damon Wayans Jr. and Kameron Tarlow, the show followed a gender non-conforming queer man who lands a job with a legendary makeup mogul played by Cattrall. Actor Miss Benny, who starred as the show's main protagonist, has since come out as a transgender woman.
Here's hoping we see Benny and Cattrall back starring in a series (that isn't "And Just Like That ...") soon.
