Netflix is heavy-handed canceling projects on its streaming platform, as you may have noticed in recent months. The strategy has changed, and now, what really matters is that users see all the episodes until the end, and not the total viewing hours, which according to the company, can be misleading.
A new strategy that resulted in cancellations that a lot of good people thought were impossible, as is the example of The Warrior Nune 1899. Incidentally, The Warrior Nun fans remain inconsolable, and are even paying for advertisements, out of their own pocket, to try to save the production.
All very curious things, since the management of Netflix claims that successful projects have never been canceled, and that this will never be the company’s objective. After all, obviously, as a streaming platform that it is, Netflix has to go after what consumers want.
Shall we try to understand?
Netflix says it never canceled hit projects
So, in case you didn’t know, there is now a giant billboard in Los Angeles, right in front of the Netflix headquarters, trying to save the series ‘The Warrior Nun’.
Which of course raises some questions… If there are so many fans, some of them even able to grab their own money, to pay for a panel of this type, in one of the most expensive cities in the world… Wouldn’t it make sense to have continued with the series?
In fact, according to several sources, this series even enjoyed high levels of success, something that we could see in the tops of Netflix itself, and we can also see it now with this advertising panel, several online petitions, among other things.
Still, Netflix insists the series was not successful or profitable enough to continue. Unfortunately, these cancellations never have an explanation to accompany them. But apparently, everything has a process!
For example, in the case of Ginny & Georgia, the production team still has no idea if the project is to continue, because Netflix always waits 30 days after the end of a season to gather all the numbers and analyze them.
That is, Netflix waits 30 days to realize the level of success of a series. What is clear, can result in strange numbers, as is the example of the 1899 series. In case you didn’t know, it had its last season debuting in the middle of the Football World Cup.
