Netflix Cancels New show spinning out.
Netflix makes the news again for canceling a show with only one season out. This isn't the first time Netflix has done this.
Last year a number of shows including its Marvel slate, the cult favorite comedy One Day At A Time, and the long-running animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender was canceled
.The canceled show called Spinning Out is a competitive figure skating drama just premiered on January 1, but it's not coming back for Season 2,
Spinning Out was created by real-life former competitive figure skater Samantha Stratton. It follows figure skater Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario) after a bad fall derails her career. She link s up with a male partner for pairs skating and pursues a spot in the Olympics.
Deadline reports that Spinning Out premiered on January 1, and went straight to series at Netflix after originating on the Canadian network Pop.
The reason these shows get canceled is that Netflix looks at the numbers for the first month of viewership, then makes decisions on renewals. Netflix produces lots of new shows quickly and often cancels ones that aren't making the cut after only a season or two.
Meanwhile, the company's viewing metrics have come under scrutiny lately. It recently changed its tally of a "view" from 70% of a given piece, to viewing just two minutes. It's also finally introduced a way to disable autoplay.
