One of Netflix subscribers’ biggest complaints about Netflix over the years has been the lack of clarity from the streamer regarding the factors which go into determining when to cancel or renew a show.

While Netflix has come a long way since its early days in beginning to pull the curtain back little by little in sharing certain metrics, there is no denying the streamer is still shrouded in mystery. As a result, it’s nearly impossible to determine what exactly Netflix is looking at when it comes time to determine whether to pull the plug on a show or proceed with another season.

As a result, when a show such as Warrior Nun is canceled there are a lot of questions about the reasoning for why a show that appears to be a hit from the outside looking in is canceled so abruptly without any proper ending or explanation.

It’s why fans then rally in the way they have around the show in order to make their voices heard and fight for an additional season. And oh have the Warrior Nun fans been making their voices heard!

Since the show’s cancellation, fans have been rallying behind the beloved Netflix show in hopes of making enough noise for Netflix or a competitor to step in and save the show. The fan efforts have been making major waves with celebrities jumping in to help spread the word and clearly, Netflix has been paying attention.

Sadly, comments from Netflix boss Ted Sarandos about people being outraged about Netflix shows getting canceled make it clear he’s not sorry Warrior Nun and other shows like it were canceled.

Why was Warrior Nun canceled: Netflix boss offers controversial reason

From the moment Warrior Nun was canceled by Netflix, fans have been understandably eager to know more about the reasons that went into the show’s cancellation. While it’s likely that we’ll never get an exact answer from Netflix brass regarding the specific reason for its decision to cancel Warrior Nun after its second season, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos’ recent comments seem to provide some clarity — though we’re not entirely a fan of what he’s trying to sell.

In a new interview with Bloomsberg, co-CEO and Chief Content Officer at Netflix Ted Sarandos was asked how the evolution of the business has affected his relationship with the creative community in reference to having people constantly outraged about shows getting canceled.

Rather than sympathizing with the fans who have been forced to say goodbye to shows they love or clarify the reasons behind Netflix’s decision to cancel shows, Sarandos instead seemed to suggest they’ve never canceled a successful show.

"“We have never canceled a successful show,” Sarandos alleged. “A lot of these shows were well-intended but talk to a very small audience on a very big budget.”"

Regardless of his intentions, the comments seem to further reiterate the disconnect between Netflix brass and its fans, proving that the streaming service apparently has no remorse at all for canceling shows such as Warrior Nun, 1899, and others by its industry standards.

Clearly, there is a bigger disconnect between Netflix’s top brass and its fans, and comments such as these only further drive a wedge between the two parties. To say a show such as Warrior Nun was not a success without actually giving fans any detailed explanation as to why is a disservice to fans and understandably leaves them feeling ostracized and slighted.

If you’re going to say you’ve never canceled a successful show, then it’s time to clearly outline what constitutes a successful show by Netflix standards and provide audiences with a clearer means to track that success.
