16. Girlboss

Canceled after: 1 season

For premiering when empowering shows and stories are all the rage, it’s shocking that Girlboss was canceled after only one season. Can’t Netflix give a girl a chance? From the trailer alone, the comedy-drama immediately draws audiences in and we want more! Unfortunately, or so according to Netflix, Girlboss failed to attract large audiences and the streaming giant cut the cord after only one season that consisted of 13 episodes.

While many (even some fans) argue that Girlboss may have worked better as a movie, I beg to differ. Season 1 follows the true and inspiring story of Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography “#Girlboss,” which focuses on how she started her own company, Nasty Gal.

It’s a fun story that truly inspires us all, particularly women, to never give up on their dreams, even when the whole world seems to be against it. Girlboss stars Britt Robertson, Ellie Reed and Johnny Simmons.

Going back to the debate on this being a movie, I believe what should have been done instead of canceling it, could have been to focus on other, similar stories that follow successful women. The comedy should have instead presented itself as an anthology series and season 2 could’ve followed another role model and so on! Carrying on with the #Girlboss theme. But, unfortunately, that’s all said and done!
