The show has been cancelled after one season.
The semi autobiographical show was released on Netflix April 21. The series centred on Sophia (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.
It debuted on the platform on April 21st. Netflix has made the decision to now renew the coming-of-age comedy. It received poor ratings including 32% on Rotten Tomatoes. They feel one of the problems may have been due the lead character being unlikable.
“We’re creating a show in which the lead is maybe unlikeable,” Cannon said on a panel in February, adding that Netflix was OK with the idea to have a female lead as complex as any male lead.
Cannon, who served as showrunner, executive produced Girlboss alongside Theron and Laverne McKinnon of D&D as well as Ditter and Amoruso who shared the news of Girlboss’ cancellation on Instagram.
“While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out,” she wrote. “It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months.”
This joins The Get Down after one season and Sense8 after two seasons of shows that have recently been discontinued.
